Evening all - I want to get a book on specifically on wood identification (plenty of people sell wood in CZ but hardley any of them know what it is) Anyway, seems like two good ones are by Hoadley and Porter.
If anyone has either (Or both) perhaps you could enlighten us with comments on them.

I've 2 of Hoadley's books, understanding wood and identifying wood; both are technically excellent. The only gripes I had were they deal predominantly in North American species (with brief forays into the exotics), and the writing style is very scholarly; technically perfect if a little hi-brow... I'd thoroughly recommend them both.
