Pros: I learned some interesting things about mushrooms and got an overview of both the easy and hard/obsessive ends of mushroom growing.

Cons: Perhaps it is more cohesive in paper format, but the ebook felt all over the place, talking about one topic, then another, without seeming to finish anything before moving on. It also seemed to use terms/equipment without introducing or explaining them them.
