Sorry for the tardy review. I've been swamped with work lately and haven't had a chance to put anything down on paper just yet. I'll try and get this done by the end of this weekend, I promise.

Initial thoughts, this book is for the beginner and intermediate cultivator. Good coverage on agar and cloning. Doesn't cover any bulk recipes or bulk cultivation methods and specifically states that it doesn't. Probably trying to avoid too much attention. Anyway, the review is coming.

Truthfully, if you can traverse the shroomery's search engine then there really isn't much point in buying this book. Compared to Stamets "practicle guide to growing mushrooms at home" this book reads at an elementary level. I found myself disagreeing with a few techniques due to the over smplification they use to describe them. (ex: book suggest a pure vermiculite casing; I'm a 50/50 man).

If you don't know jack squat about mycology, then yeah, sure, pick this bad boy up. It has plenty of color-photoed step-by-step instructions for things such as grain inoculation, spawn bag management, agar, cloning, grain-grain transfers, ect.... It talks briefly on bulk, but doesn't supply the steps past spawning.

Overall, its a handy little thing. Especially if you have never grown before. If you know your stuff, don't buy it.

Took me less than a day's free time to read.

I just got this book. A great read but, not as good of a read as the Shroomery. Maybe more organized. Still a good book.

I agree, this is for beginners. Maybe a bit of insight for p. azurescens but that's it. Nothing new here and certainly nothing I didn't already know just from looking around here.

Good Job Shroomery! You're outpacing the literature

I have it. It is good, except I think it lacks the necessary details in the grain section. I used the wheat berries like they recomend, and they were much too dry after PCing. They also didn't say anything about shaking the jars while they were still hot to evenly disperse the water.Also, no liquid tek in here.

I just received mine today and think it is great. It has more details and information about cultivation and has more pictures then some of the older books I got. It is definitely a must have for a newbie like myself, and many others. It even contains links to some better shroom websites.

everything in that book (and then some), you can find here on the shroomery. The book is handier of course, and has many large colored photos of procedures.

Even so, Its still a 'bait' (as in the opposite of casual) book to order - Large companies don't like getting harassed by law enforcement agencies  :crazy:

As a true beginner, (which I can prove this being my first post) I recently purchased this book. I'm a bit confused about the improved pk tek. I don't see how "messy tubs of casing" can be all that difficult, but I might just try it out and learn what works best and what to discard. I thought it was a fairly decent read. (nothing comparable to stamets of course)
