What are the best books about homeschooling?

What books inspire homeschooling? 

I asked a number of homeschooling mothers (just friends of mine) which books helped them the most when they were first considering homeschooling.  I asked which ones were their favorites.

Here is a list of the most recommended books (in no particular order):
