    Book details

From the author of GROWING GOURMET AND MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS comes the only identification guide exclusively devoted to the world's psilocybin-containing mushrooms. Detailed descriptions and color photographs for over 100 species are provided, as well as an exploration of their long-standing (and often religious) use by ancient peoples and their continued significance to modern-day culture. Some of the species included have just been discovered in the past year or two, and still others have never before been photographed in their natural habitats.

PAUL STAMETS is the founder of Fungi Perfecti and codirector and founder of the Rainforest Mushroom Genome and Mycodiversity Preservation Project. He is the author of two seminal textbooks, The Mushroom Cultivator and GROWING GOURMET AND MEDICINAL MUSHROOMS, has been published in numerous journals, and is presenting more lectures on mycology than he can keep track of. An advisor and consultant to the Program for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona Medical School and the 1998 recipient of the Collective Heritage Institute s Bioneers Award, Stamets lives in Kamilche Point, Washington with his collection of more than 250 medicinal mushroom cultures."

    Great photographs and informative text plus links to other sources of information. If you want to know more about these marvellous plants and the theories/history that surround them then this is a good starting point. It includes suggested doses and some precautions,As a guide to the species it is top class.

    great book but still not quite the great identifier i was looking for. we need a book with plenty/multiple photos of each mushroom that grows in Britain and Northern Europe. Someday someone will put one of these together because the psilocybin mushrooms of the british isles old book is useless unless you want to identify P Semincealata, which, come on, most people who would be interested in such a book, already know how to identify. i don't think Stamets book is even good enough to safely identify wavy caps (and there are a few more types that grow in Britain. they are a little rarer, contain a bit less active alkaloids but they're there for utilisation).

    Paul S. is an awesome writer. The first time I was introduced to his works was from a YouTube video which also contained lots of helpful information. The book is detailed and clearly written it also highlights some of the prejudice that he faced when deciding to study magic mushrooms which I thought was interesting we need more people like him. It contains pictures really clear however they are a little small but that is not a problem since the text that describes the mushroom is really well written. I would recomend this for anyone who is keen to learn more about mushrooms of the Psilocybe genus and other psychoactive genus as it tackles every aspect of it.
