T.M.C. or G.G.M.M. ? Your opinions please
    #1080474 - 11/24/02 12:20 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hello people,
This post is directed at people who have read / own BOTH 'The Mushroom Cultivator' and 'Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms' by Paul Stamets.
I have heard that both are excellent publications. I have had a browse through GGMM at the library, and I am thinking of buying it. However I thought I should consult peoples opinions on this book compared to TMC.
Is TMC similar to GGMM? Or what are the differences between them? My interests lie mainly in Psychedelic mushrooms, but I also enjoy growing / reading about edibles / medicinals.
The books are roughly the same price, so there is no cost issues between them. (On a side note, does anyone know where I can get a new copy of either of these for less than $30 US, on the internet?)
So any opinions are welcome....which of these two books do you think is the best, if I can only get one of them? Or is there any other books on similar topics which you think is better than both of these?
Thanks

at the book store i was at, TMC was $30 and GGMM was $45. I have read a good portion of both. I chose TMC, because the content was more related to do what i wanted to do. There is alot of duplicat information, but i recomend TMC. There is info on gormet mushrooms in it as well.

GGMM is meant as an addition to TMC so I would recommend getting it first. TMC also has more psilocybian mushroom parameters.

Try doing an search of Stamets under author for used copies at http://www.bookfinder.com/. I see there is a copy available now for $19.95. Check often as the inventory changes daily.

I have found the best place to look for used books is the advanced book exhancge

abebooks.com

Try typing "Stamets, Paul" in the author box.

hope this helps,

Langdon

BTW, the above information pertains to the cultivation of shitake mushrooms and none other. I only use the shroomery forums as an information source for fungi propogation, not the cultivation of psylocibes.

Get them both if you can. Both a nice read and have overlapping areas of information. I have 2nd ed of the GGMM and plan on getting the 3rd soon.

TMC has a lot more content about psilos than GGMM TMc would be a lot more useful to you.

Get both. I consulted both of them on a regular basis. Get TMC first if you can only get one.
