This book is very vital for learning about the cultivation and growth of mushrooms, both on a small scale in private gardens and on a larger scale in agriculture and industry. Robinson teaches the reader about how to prepare the substrate on which mushrooms can grow, how to collect and use the mushroom spawn, and how to grow mushrooms in a wide range of different structures and environment. This book also espouses the importance of eating mushrooms and putting them into the national diet, which is still something that is being worked on today. The book is filled with very useful illustrations and techniques that will help even the most amateur mushroom cultivator become an expert in no time.
