At first glance, this book appears to be great. It has an easy to understand layout, lots of detailed descriptions, and a handy plastic cover to keep it clean- perfect for chucking in a rucksack while you're off mushroom hunting.
However, so many of the mushrooms I've found while out and about haven't been in the book. It seems to include very rare fungi but not ones which seem to be very common in this country! So now I'm going to have to invest in a new one. Great book if you want to read about mushrooms but not very good if you actually want to identify them.
