Format: Hardcover
This book is not a field manual or identification guide. It aims to give a background in fungi and develop the reader's interest in the area. It succeeds in every respect. Very interesting to read, making you want to get out of the chair and do something. Brilliant book even if you don't want to go foraging.

Having met the author informally, and knowing that he is very knowledgeable and fascinated by his subject, I was curious to see his published work - and I was delighted with it. The book is beautifully presented, with wonderful pictures and an entertaining text which is also very clear in explaining and educating about safe/poisonous fungi.
