8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Marcel Beauchamp on March 7 2009
Format: Paperback
This is truly an inspirational book. Being an avid gardener but not knowing much about mushrooms, I was mesmerized by this new world which was opened to me by Paul Stamets. What I found particularly fascinating is the incredible usefulness of mushrooms beyond their gourmet aspect, or even their medicinal worth, as possible saviours of the mess we've gotten ourselves into when it comes to environmental degredation. This book (and I'm not even finished reading it yet - I can't seem to put it down) has inspired me to try my own experiments with growing mushrooms. It's filled with great photos and useful step-by-step instructions. The presentation of the material and quality of the book are exemplary. I'm looking forward to spring to look for mycellium and attempt identifying mushrooms and growing them.

This is the book I wish I had the money to buy multiple copies of to send to friends and give to our local library and schools.
A well researched and thoroughly readable scientific book with great respect for the wonders of the earth. I didn't know how little I understood about the relationships between mycellium, plants and animals until I read Paul Stamets wonderful and spiritual book.

Format: Paperback
Stamets conveys his passion and vast understanding of the world of mushrooms, mycelium, and the symbiotic relations we live and are capable of developing in this fantastic resourse. Mycelium Running branches into areas of fungal restoration, cultivation, mushroom basics, advanced techniques and fungal mechanisms, etc. The epic content of knowledge therein, coupled with Stamets higher understanding of our coexistance with all things natural make Mycelium Running a must have for anyone interested in the incredible possibilties we have as a species; if we fuse our living and understanding with this most powerful of organisms.

I ordered this book as one of the sources for the research phrase of my thesis paper. I did not need to read the entire book but I ended up did. It is very well written, easy to understand and changed my perspective towards sustainability. Should also check out Paul Stamets' Ted talk online as well!

Paul Stamets has produced a work that is an engaging read and is packed with useful information. Whether the reader seeks to grow fungi for food, for medicine or to promote a healthy environment this book provides the information required in substantial depth. I highly recommend Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World to anyone who has an interest in personal health or ecological health.
