Books on OpenStreetMap

While being familiar with the context of, and – from a GIS perspective – research into, OpenStreetMap (OSM) and other crowdsourcing efforts in the geospatial field, I was not aware that there are books dedicated to OSM. Over at Po Ve Sham Muki Haklay hosts a comprehensive review (by Thomas Koukoletsos and himself) of two OSM books. The two books covered are:

The former book also has a dedicated website in German and English.
In some parts the review by Thomas Koukoletsos and Muki sounds relatively equivocal, but the two come up with a strong recommendation at the end. Head over to Po Ve Sham for the full details.
