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.
