This book is fantastic! It''s a textbook more than anything. I''m a scientist (but not biology) and it makes perfect sense. If you struggle with technical details he''s got you covered, it''s also pretty simple to follow his points. As I''m reading I start thinking "ok, so what about if you don''t have that?" Or "so what is an agar medium anyway?" And literally the next section is devoted to my question. It''s clear that the full picture is being laid out in a natural and easy to follow format. There''s such a wealth of knowledge here! If you only take away the bullet points you''ll still be able to put together a great mushroom patch. If you like to know the "why" behind things you do then it''s all there. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand how the mushroom life cyle works and how to grow them in a plethora of methods.

This is Paul Stemets continuation and addition to his original how-to book, "Mushroom Cultivator". I own both of these books and refer back to them often. This one goes into cultivation techniques at a more advanced level. Some of the ideas are more up-to-date as it was written many years later. This book covers a wider range of mushroom species and growth parameters. I would definitely recommend both of his books to anyone interested in growing mushrooms. This book also has a large section of color photographs, which his previous book does not. This book also covers more aspects of commercial cultivation of many species of mushrooms. I''ve used specific recipes from this book to mix my own agar for petri dishes, make my own mushroom spawn, and growing substrate. I''ve used the recommended temperature/humidity ranges with great success for growing Oyster, Lion''s Mane, and Shiitake mushrooms. While there have been improvements on some of the techniques and ideas outlined by this book, since it''s last revision, this book still offers the most complete and decisive understanding of mushroom cultivation as a whole. This is great book for beginners and experienced growers alike.

you need to get 3 books in the series, Mycelium Running, The Mushroom Cultivator, MycoMedicinals, and this book, growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms! u need to have a small library of books if ur going to do it right. Here is a very practical book for growing them on a small scale, like at home, like me!! its "the essential guide to "Cultivating Mushrooms"< in big letters on the cover! by Stephen Russell !! this is an excellent practical book, in plain English, not so much in technical names, and it very good at showing exactly how to do it !! the other 3 go in to more detail, if u want to know more, but this last books tells it how it is in real life and in your backyard or basement. you will never know how good or bad it is, if u don''t start ordering some soon! u may pick up only 1 tip from a whole book, but that tip maybe the key to ur success or ur failure!
that''s the cost of doing business!!

Paul Staments writes a great detailed book about growing gourmet and medicinal mushrooms. His book is comprehensive and gives the reader more than enough knowledge to start growing mushrooms. I had some experience growing mushrooms prior to beginning to read this book and still benefited immensely from this book. I highly recommend this book for any experience level grower. I have successfully cultivated blue oyster and reishi mushrooms following the guidance given in this book. I have created master cultures, petree dish cultures and mushroom grow medium all following advice from this book.

I am a Paul fan, but, if you are purchasing this ONLY to make magic... I would recommend another book on amazon that has the title The Psilocybin Mushroom Bible. That is more of a step by step guide which has very good and clear photos, well writing and has subtle humor. The bible is straight to the point to make magic. This book feels pretty retro. Most of the photos seem like they were taking in the 70''s (probably because they are! Haha). And their isn''t really a step by step setup. But this book will teach you about cultivating many many many other mushrooms. This book doesnt seem very fitting for virgin mushroom cultivators like me. But I am glad to support Paul.

Textbook style in its size, weight and depth of explanation. A "bible" as some have called it, and the natural brother to Stamets other cultivation books.

Definitely an important pickup for any aspiring grower, if for no other reason than as a reference material for edible mushrooms.

This is NOT a mushroom identification guide, and should not be purchased with that intent.

Nice, thick, full of photos, scholarly research and bibliography. I just wish some photos could have been printed in color. Author, Stamets, an expert, please publish the colors, we need them. Text information is spectacular. Better photos PLEASE!

I was looking for something I could read as a beginner to start growing my own mushrooms, this book is not it. It is however jam packed full of information, but is just somewhat difficult to sift through all of it an get a good understanding on what I am doing without a bunch of reading....this book is way thicker than I had imagined it would be. If you are looking for a book on mushrooms and have a good background on them and looking to fine tune your skills this would be helpful for you. If your are like me and just looking to get started I would choose something less confusing.

This book contains a wealth of useful information about all aspects of mushroom cultivation. Though, from the point of view of a beginner, much of the information relates to large scale cultivation and laboratory techniques, all of it is relevant and adaptable to inform and improve simple home growing techniques. The genuine enthusiasm of the author comes across throughout, and the broad range of fungi knowledge presented will give the reader a good basic understanding of how fungi actually function, both in cultivation and in the wild, which is really important to be able to culture them effectively. The most useful section of all, in my optinion, is the section giving a full analysis of each cultivated species covered by the book. This gives the grower the exact tempertures, humidities, timescales etc. to aim for to get optimal results, which is obviously a great help when you''re trying to get things working.

It was a better gift for me than the stepson!
Reviewed in Canada on August 31, 2019
Bought this for my oldest stepson. He really liked it and started growing mushrooms in my in-laws basement. Which personally I think is hilarious and is driving them up the wall. So for this I give 4 stars... But hasn’t landed them in a home yet so Not getting 5 stars.
