I give this book 9 out of 10 acorns.

Trad Cotter shows off a broad range of growing techniques for a decent variety of different mushrooms from basic entry level techniques all the way to pretty hard-core lab level. There are many novel ideas such as turning your old blue jeans into edible mushrooms, getting rid of those old pizza boxes that pile up using mushrooms, even how to deal with stinky chicken bedding using mushrooms. This book also includes one of the most in-depth write ups on how to establish a morel colony which is one of the more difficult mushrooms to work with.
