unlistenable

I tried so hard to get through this. The narration literally destroyed whatever the author was trying to put across. almost every other word is mispronounced, some to the point that I had no clue as to what was going on. the narrator has an intense west coast old school surfer vibe, not at all suitable for learning. I do believe he has a role to fill in narration but it isn't here.

good information.

The narrator's voice was a a little too "California dude". I don't doubt the expertise of the author.

Don't read

Waste of time. Didn't go into detail about anything. Hallf the book is just a list of edible mushrooms and some basic facts about them. The rest is shit I could have told you as an amateur.

Narrator Ruined It

The narration sounds like half machine, half condescending or "know it all" voice. If you're unable to find a different narrator, read the book.

Narrator is AWFUL. Mispronunciations abound.

I can barely make it through this. As an avid mushroomhead this is like torture. The information itself is good so I'm not pointing at the author but the narration is so off the mark, often combining sentences, inserting words that shouldn't be there (calling mushrooms "mosquitos" at one point) and finding his own ways of pronouncing words like basidiomycetes (sometimes "basomite" sometimes "basiadites" but literally never using the correct term). If you're trying to learn mushrooms, stay away from the audio version.

Mushroom growing: a complete guide

Not having any experience actually growing mushrooms, at first glance, I was not inclined to listen this book. Then I thought about all the other vegetables and fruit trees I’ve grown and the fact that mushrooms grow wild in my yard when the conditions are right, and decided to give the book a try. I’m glad I did. I now know ten times more about mushrooms and am inclined to give growing some of them a try. This book really opened my eyes.

The book is well spoken and nicely illustrated. It covers the subject area thoroughly, with chapters on: life cycle, growing conditions, growing process, growing methods, preparation, and more.

Lots of Information ruined by reader

Lots of information read by computer??
Unfortunately the reader did this book a disservice. Not only words read incorrectly but timing and pauses were way off or non existent, which made it hard to decipher. Sometimes it was a bit repetitive but you could definitely get an idea of what you needed to get start mushroom growing.
