Came here to recommend this one, When Weeds Talk. It's an extremely useful book. A bit of front matter, then basically a printed-out spreadsheet of every conceivable unwanted volunteer with what conditions are its favorite for volunteering. If you get a list of what weeds are appearing on a site, you can convert that into quite a good understanding of what minerals and other conditions exist. Also great for figuring "what's wrong with this little patch here?".

When Weeds Talk
Jay L. McCaman

This is the 2nd edition of the book formerly titled Weeds and Why They Grow. Acres U.S.A. has long shown that weed control lies in fertility management. Every weed grows in a somewhat narrow window of allowable soil conditions. For the first time, hundreds of weeds of commercial importance are detailed along with the chemical analysis of accompanying soils. For example, burdock grows in soils with very high levels of iron and sulfate, very low levels of calcium and manganese. Balance the soil, lose the weed.

I have this question too. From the way the emails read, it sounded like the intent was for me to be able to access this recording as a Kickstarter backer, but it's prompting me to purchase. So there's either a mistake that's not giving me access, or I've misunderstood the emails. I'd like to know one way or the other.
