Format: Paperback
This guide is a gem, covering everything from recipies to cultural attitudes and blurbs of short fiction (intentionally or not, the stories are hilarious), all of which is sandwitched into an information packed, full color photo format replete with every prominant mushroom you want to identify. All fits in your pocket, too.

Absolutely the best pocket-sized reference around. I lost my copy (or it was stolen!) and am reordering another. Contains identification keys that are usable in the field (less dependence on spore prints and microscopic exams than some of the others). Great photos make field ID easy. It seems I nearly always find what I'm looking for in this little book. Don't leave home without it!

Lots of wonderful little stories, great photos, and clear, concise descriptions. A must-have for anyone who enjoys nature and especially loves mushies. Look for the recipes throughout the book.

Format: Paperback
What can I say, but wow! It took me about three weeks and better than 12 hours of reading time to put it down. It has been indespensible on my hikes and has expanded and enriched the lives of myself, my husband and four children. Even if you don't think you love mushrooms, you will. An essential for any outdoor enthusiasts library!

Format: Paperback
This book is GREAT! A fantastic field guide, giving great pictures, stories, recepies, and more. Even covers some of the psilocybin species. This book is aimed at mushrooms in the western U.S. so if your elsewhere it may not be helpfull, but most of these species do grow all over the world so I don't think it matters much. A great book!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent companion to the author's Mushrooms Demystified. There are great photos and page references to his earlier comprehensive work. I especially liked the serendipitous "extraneous" information on favorite mushroom hunts, cooking tips, and especially the great picture of my old buddy David "Pan" Grimes replete with lecciniums in his hair.

Format: Paperback
A handy guide that easily fits in a fanny pack or raincoat
pocket. Chock full of colorful pictures and interesting
anecdotes along with David's easy to use identification
key. For the beginning explorer to the veteran who doesn't
want to lug the tome Mushrooms Demystified in the field,
this book is a great buy.
