This review is from: Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 (Hardcover)
I already owned a number of mushrooming books but, in many instances, they confused more than they helped; this book doesn't. Yes, you'll need some back up books, but this book really is superb and very, very well written, so much so that I read it in a day, just because it was so hilarious and enjoyable to read.
"I'm just off mushroom picking" is often the prelude to an obituary but armed with this book I feel I have a decent chance of eating wild mushroom omelettes well into my dotage.
