2.0 out of 5 stars very basic January 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It needs more detail on spawn production, diff substrates and qty, casings, fruiting.
I think it was a waste of money
Main emphasis is on kits.
If I wanted a kit I would have bought one and would have come with the same set of instructions

5.0 out of 5 stars Anything you need to know about growing Mushrooms October 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely a must have if you would like to grow mushrooms at home, or even if you just want to know more about mushrooms. Not only does this book tell you HOW to grow them, it gives you a breakdown on each individual kind of mushroom that is out there available to grow. It covers how to grow each individual mushroom in depth, it tells you the temperature and humidity level needed for each one, and even what to look for as they are growing as well as what to look for as they reach maturity and harvest time.

There are full color illustrations throughout the book, so you can easily identify each mushroom type, and for a visual person like me, that was invaluable. There are mushrooms, like the Turkey Tail and the Lion's Mane that I didn't even know existed and are also considered a delicacy for their unique taste. Who would have thought a certain mushroom could taste like seafood?

This book is a comprehensive guide to mushrooms, it not only gives you a color photo and description, it also tells you which mushrooms are used for medicinal purposes, something I didn't realize before buying this book--that some mushrooms have medicinal value.

As another added bonus, it even tells you how to cook each type of mushroom, and what kind of taste they have, which was a real surprise and a very welcome addition to this book. If you like mushrooms, even if you don't want to grow them yourself, you should grab this book simply for all of the information it contains about these tasty treats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow, I Now Appreciate What Mushroom Growers Do! December 28, 2013
By M Live
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Maybe I should have given a 5 star rating because the book is well written. But, it did scare me off the idea of growing mushrooms. The time and money I would have to invest would exceed buying my fresh mushrooms at Costco. What I really liked about this book was that it shows what is really involved in growing mushrooms. The meticulous sanitary conditions must be implemented, the humidity and temperatures must be within range, and spawn must be purchased. Silly me lives in New Mexico, high altitude, VERY low humidity, and either very cold or very hot temperatures. But, I love mushrooms so I bought this book. I am not sorry that I did and would recommend it to those that live in the right areas to grow mushrooms.

I bought this book to learn a little more about mushrooms, as I am trying to grow them in plastic bags in my home. This book was useless. I actually got more information from the internet for free. The author has short chapters with very basic information with no specifics. A person that knows nothing at all about the process of mushroom cultivation would be lost using this as a guide. Do not waste your money on this!

Simple intro to grow mushrooms at home with kits. If you want to grow without using a kit you will have to look elsewhere.
