Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms, 3rd Edition by Paul Stamets. This new edition of Stamets's definitive text has been expanded by over 150 pages compared to the 2nd edition. Covers cultivation of 31 species, from oyster mushrooms (several chapters) to shiitake to portobellos. This is the best available book on cultivating wood decomposing mushrooms by traditional (that is, non-peroxide) methods.
The Mushroom Cultivator: A Practical Guide to Growing Mushrooms at Home, by Paul Stamets and J.S. Chilton. This book is somewhat dated, but still the best reference available on growing Agaricus and other compost-loving species by traditional methods.
