The book that brought mycology out of obscurity and into the focus of the mainstream. A true paradigm shifting book for anybody interested in mushrooms and their true potential written by the mushroom guru Paul Stamets. This is an absolute must read. Mycelium Running covers topics as diverse as mycofiltration, mycoforestry, mycoremediation, mycopesticides, inoculation methods, cultivation, gardening with gourmet mushrooms, and nutrition. Stamet's thoughts on mycelium as Nature's Internet is incredible.
