Informative ,left wanting !
This is a fairly informative book but like most books that miss the exact point needed ! Different methods of actual set up for growing different mushrooms in many actual situations !

Though rather small, this book offers basic information for mushroom growing which is what I wanted for the home library. It is easy to read and offers some good ideas for the beginners.

A great beginners read
A well written and informative little book. Cultivating mushrooms is something I've wanted to try for a long time now, and this has increased my excitement just in time for four different types of spores to arrive at my house. I'm interested in the little details and science behind the shroom, so I will need a more in depth read in the future. Thanks for the motivation!

This was a nice little guide to get us started as we tried out a bunch of mushroom growing kits. The instructions in those tend to be very limited, so this was helpful in our success of getting more than half the kits to actually grow. We'll hang onto this.

Simple and Informative
This is a very basic overview of cultivating mushrooms at home. It is a great book for people who don't know the basics of mushroom growing (life cycle, recommendations for substrates and species to cultivate, and growth requirements). Not recommended for advanced mushroom growers, however, many resource are shared through this book. A very quick read.

Easy to Follow Instructions and Great for Beginners
The author of this manual follows the KISS principle: keep it simple, stupid! I found this book to be well-written with great examples, short, sweet, and to the point. If you've ever considered raising your own mushrooms, Frank Randall delivers with specific examples. He tells you the positive and negative of his experiences of growing different varieties of mushrooms, as well as what to try as a beginner and what varieties to wait on growing until you have more experience (but with tips on how to grow the harder ones).
I have started my first batch using this guide - wish me luck! I picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion and, as I write this review, I see the pricing is now at $2.99 - money well-spent.

Where do mushrooms come from?
I am lost when it comes to mushrooms and wanted to know where they come from. I've been eating them all my life and don't know how they grow them. Can you grow mushrooms, Yes you can if you read this book and then all those great dishes you eat like Mushroom Barley casserole can come from your own garden.

FANTASTIC SIMPLE EASY READ
I live in Thailand way out in the jungle and wanted to learn the basic principles of growing mushrooms.
Franks book was a quick and easy read with a non BS approach.. Exactly what I needed and really interesting stuff for the novice mushroom farmer...

A good little book
This was a nice little book. It certainly didn't make growing mushrooms seem like an easy thing to do.
