What book should I read about Web 2.0 applications and Education?

I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for, but I do know I don't want an explanation of what 2.0 applications are. I've seen several titles mentioned about the subject, but would like to hear what people think is the best out there. Suggestions?

If you really want to bend your mind, read Clay Shirkey's Here Comes Everybody. It's not specifically about education, but it's about the dramatic changing that the read/write web is bringing.

Education specific:
Web 2.0: New Tools, New Schools by Gwen Solomon and Lynne Schrum
Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms by Will Richardson
Classroom Blogging: 2nd Edition by David Warlick
I only know the Richardson and Warlick books and both are excellent. I have not yet seen the third one that Steve lists here, but knowing him, I am sure it is a worthy resource.
I'd go with Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Tools for the Classroom by Will Richardson. It's easy to read with lots of practical applications.
at the risk of a little self promotion, i am one of the authors, Technology Toolkit - Introduction to Web2 by Nelson Cengage(Australia) covers the what why and how of wikis blogs podcasting with case study examples from many of the leaders in Australia and New Zealand

we have support ning/blog/wiki/ around the place to use the technology not just talk about IT

not on amazon due to restrictive trade by US with Australia, but can be ordered online.
I click on the image for the order form, and it says "page not found." FYI.
I had the same error, Steve.
