    An incredible book. Meticulous, informative, and literally the best book on mushroom cultivation out there. Stamets focuses on commercial mushroom production, but it is clear that one can adapt many of his methods to cultivating edible mushrooms in one's home. Highly recommended. If you take the time to read through and study the book carefully, you're guaranteed to come out with some very impressive knowledge about fungi and how to grow them. Stamets enthusiasm for mushrooms is infectious, and An incredible book. Meticulous, informative, and literally the best book on mushroom cultivation out there.

    It's unfortunately out of date, in not covering the revolutionary PF Tech method of small-scale mushroom culture. But there's still a wealth of great information. One author is an expert in edible food mushroom growing, and the other in hallucinogenic Psilocybes! This turns out to be a very real and interesting mix of cultures in the mushroom culture community.

    Technical, comprehensive guide on mushroom cultivation. The only fault I find is the age of the information. Doesn't include newer methods that have been developed for small scale growers in the past 20 years, but all of the info in this book is still viable!

    Very heavy on the technical stuff. Great if you're going to grow mushrooms. Obviously being published in 1983 a lot of the information has been improve upon, but things such as the troubleshooting and contaminant identification/treatment sections are still very useful in mushroom cultivation.
