DNA isolation from mud/soil

Hi - I've been looking for a method of extracting PCR-able genomic DNA
from sediments such as lake mud.  The trouble is, there are a lot of methods
detailed in the literature, and nearly every author claims his/her method is
the best.

Would anyone like to tell me their favourite method and why?  or perhaps
point me in the direction of a recent review of soil extraction methods?

Many thanks,
