The top rated book is by Lorine McGinnis Schulze, well known for her Olive Tree Genealogy website. In only 22 pages she explains her system for organizing your genealogy information on Evernote.
Most of these books are US-oriented. Second ranked Genealogy Offline is an example. Third ranked is a the first of four free books, a digitized version of The Mayflower and Her Log; July 15, 1620-May 6, 1621 originally published in 1901.
Introduction to Family History Student Manual is strictly for the LDS member looking to learn the doctrines and principles to perform the work of redeeming the dead.
The Purposeful Family Historian is one I hesitated to include. There's just a single rating and it's the most costly per page, even more than Genealogy Standards:Fiftieth Anniversary Edition from the Board for Certification of Genealogists now at a 55% saving from the original price.
