Here in Thailand each day in the year we out in the nature can go searching for mushrooms or buy it fresh on the markets so I'm getting used to a couple of times each week to get mushrooms. And especially this year in which we have had more rain than normally for the Rainy Season we have seen more mushrooms on the market. Opposite to this, in Denmark from where I come, we only are used to in the month of September having the possibility to out in the nature go searching after the mushrooms.

So I had to by a book about mushroom, and I have been very delighted by reading this book. Among other the book is fine by having 15 good pictures showing the mushrooms about whish there are written the most.

On the front side among other it's mentioned that "Healing Properties of Medical Mushrooms", but in the writing there are more about this, the medical, than I had sought, and especially much interesting writing concerning Cancer. And about this, that is the Anticancer drugs, I discovered that the Lentinan, which comes from the Shiitage mushroom, is the third most widely prescribed Anticancer drug in the world, but being rather unknown in USA. And that nearly all of the mushrooms which are being mentioned in the book are helping in the fighting of Cancer, and besides also fighting the Cholesterol. And especially out here in Asia this has been known for thousands of years. But there are also mentioned much research done during the last 40 years, especially in China and Japan. So after finishing the book I among other went into Google searching for more information's especially about Lentinan as my wife have had breast cancer and are using the Femaron drug which have mane bad side effects.

And about each of the mushroom mentioned in the book there are stated many names where the names tells what was thought about them among other for against what they should help. And one of them, the strange looking Cordyceps sinensis, which was believed to in the 2 seasons, the 2 half of the years, changing between being a worm and being a stalk and then back again. And were now one research person believes that it's composed of tree different organisms!

And concerning the mushroom in nature there are also interesting information as for example mentioning the mushroom beneath the soil of Michigan which is 1.500 years old covers parts of 35 acres, and weights 100 tons! And that if we did not have the mushrooms on the earth then live, as we know it, would not exist as it is the mushrooms that take care of all that have died.

And the writer also are reminding us about the frozen 5.300 year old mummy which in 1991 was discovered in the Tyrolean Alps, and here comes with some interesting discoveries among other that the mummy brought with him fungi, mushroom, as a medicine kit, and for what it was used.

And the book also starts interestingly with the writer telling when under The Second Word War he with his father, who was a mycologist, were out searching mushroom when they were close to starvation, and by that caught his interest concerning mushrooms.

And I think that in the future we in the Vest will start using mushroom more both at eating and concerning health. For the health that is discovering more in the mushroom for using in drugs and thereby getting drugs without the many bad side effects which we know from the clearly industrial drugs.

Written by an MD & professor of medicine & also Dr. of pharmacy. This man has been professor of medicine at UC Davis and other famous schools. The book to start with if one wants to have lots of studies to back up claims.and jump into mushrooms for health. Includes some but far from all of the medicinal mushrooms. Would hope for more from Dr.Halpern.

I'm 81 years old and have been getting into new food items that hopefully will enhance my health and longevity. First was seaweed, then miso and now mushrooms. This book is exactly what I was looking for. The author is highly qualified and explains all about mushrooms and how certain ones affect your health, where they are grown and who sells them. He focuses on eight medicinal mushrooms and mentions a number of mushrooms still being researched. For someone wanting an excellent introduction to mushrooms, this is the book.

I thought this book was an excellent source of information on healing mushrooms. There is enough information to satisfy most inquiring minds. I looked at some other books on mushrooms but found this one to be more to my liking. I know there have been other research papers published regarding the mushrooms in this book but this book satisfied my need for information. If you want to know about healing mushrooms I would recommend you start with this book.

This is an excellent basic book on medicinal mushrooms. The background stories are fascinating, and it is well-researched and written.

Informative.
It's not exactly what I had expected - a bit too technical for me.
