The author displays a passion for the world of cannabis, exhibits a degree of vulnerability, and you can kind of discern a sense of playful mischief through his writing.

“HOW TO GROW PSILOCYBIN MUSHROOMS: The Ultimate Step-By-Step Guide to Cultivation and Safe Use of Psychedelic Magic Mushrooms With Benefits and Side Effects” by Gordon L. Atwell

Those who have sampled the curious and, at times, magnificent effects of psilocybin often desire to have regular access to their own reliable supply but often do not know where to begin with such an endeavor.

Now you can learn more about the science behind the “magic mushrooms”, better understand how they interact with the human body from a scientific standpoint, and how one may cultivate the mushrooms themselves from home.

If you have an interest in psilocybin use then it is worth exploring what author Gordon L. Atwell has to say on the subject in this book.

-Topic Focus-

This book breaks down mushrooms and psilocybin from a broad range entailing the history, the current political environment around mushroom use, the scientific discoveries surrounding psilocybin, an exploration of the mental and psychological impact of mushrooms on the human brain, how to grow them, and so much more fascinating content on the subject.

This book seems intended to serve as a look at the larger picture of “magic mushrooms” with the goal of addressing the topic from a variety of perspectives in order to weave together a more complete understanding of the subject at hand.

The information available on mushroom cultivation is decent and ideal for a beginner who is looking to explore the basics of mushroom cultivation.

-About the Author-

Author Gordon L. Atwell is no stranger to writing and cultivating as he has also written “MICROGREENS: An Essential Guide to Grow Nutrient-Dense Organic Microgreens for Your Health or Profit”, “Aquaponics for Beginners: The Ultimate Step-by-Step Guide to Build Your Own Aquaponics Garden System That Will Grow Organic Vegetables”, “Fruits, Herbs and Raising Fish”, “ORGANIC GARDENING: 3 Manuscripts”, “Hydroponics for Beginners, Aquaponics for Beginners and Microgreens, For Your Health or Profit”, and more.

Gordon displays a serious level of interest in mushrooms and has clearly taken a deep dive into the journey of his research to write this book.

You can find Gordon’s other books here:

-Reading Experience-

The book is clearly well researched in regards to the breakdown on the politics, the history, usage, and more of mushroom and psilocybin use.

The writing level is somewhat sub par and the information presented on actual cultivation is fairly basic, to be fair.

“HOW TO GROW PSILOCYBIN MUSHROOMS” does a solid job of condensing a wide variety of information regarding mushrooms into one book that is not overly complex to read


Author Gordon L. Atwell brings some serious research to the table regarding mushrooms and psilocybin but the writing level is noticeably lacking at times.

Beginners when it comes to mushroom cultivation can take some decent information from this book but those who are moving past the beginners stage will not find much beyond what they already know.

Having a single book to cover the political, social, scientific, and other aspects of mushrooms absolutely helps this book to stand out among others of its kind.

“Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational, and Scientific” by Martin A. Lee

Understanding the nuanced relationships of science, politics, history, health, culture, and more when it comes to cannabis can be quite the challenging endeavor but author Martin Lee does a fantastic job of creating a birds-eye view of how these subjects overlap to create the modern marijuana culture we see today, for better and worse.

Tag along as Lee conveys the multitude of ups and downs that cannabis culture has endured while learning more about the health benefits of cannabis use, the history surrounding our favorite flower, and where we stand today through the lens of a story told via character perspective.

-Topic Focus-

There are many awesome books that take a larger-scale look at the past and present of marijuana culture but the author choosing to utilize a character-driven narrative to convey this information is a unique choice that helps the reader to stay interested and invested moving forward in the book.

Here you will find much reliable content focused on the health benefits and therapeutic aspects of cannabis use, an overview of the history of marijuana, and so much more from the perspective of an award-winning journalist.

In this book, you will find sections that focus on the drug war, the rapid growth of the marijuana industry, the relationship between politics and cannabis, some good old-fashioned herb-lore, and you will be pleasantly surprised to find just how thoroughly research these topics are.

His speaking and lecture tours have taken him to places such as Dartmouth College, Harvard University, John Hopkins University, Columbia University, and more.

Right from the start, you are thrown a unique twist as you might be expecting a more neutral or scientific approach to this topic and you are greeted with an introduction of a character in a story. Conveying such complex and far-reaching information through the medium of storytelling in this book is impressively done. I initially expected some kind of breakdown that is common with these sorts of books when the prologue surprised me with the description of a Texan on horseback with a mustache to begin with.

The book flows well and the solid information is stylishly intertwined with comfortably paced storytelling that really makes the reader feel more invested in the book.

The in-depth level of research and its degree of professionalism becomes clear quickly as you move forward in this book.


“Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational, and Scientific” by author Martin A. Lee feels like two books in one as it is incredibly educational while conveying its information through storytelling and narrative, not unlike a fictional novel.

The book is quite large at nearly 500 pages but it seems to flow so smoothly you hardly notice just how dense it is as the story itself is engaging and the information presented is very revealing.

“Smoke Signals” is absolutely worth adding to your cannabis library and revisiting again and again over time.
