I have been a big mushroom entusiast for some time now and I have at least 14 different field guides to mushrooms, this book is my all time favourate. Everything you have ever wanted in a field guide, pictures pictures and more pictures. Every mushroom is photographed and represented clearly from all angles, even cross sections showing the flesh. Good descriptions for every one, maybe not the longest description but detailed enough. If more information is needed on a mushroom I look it up else where. The photos make identifying mushrooms a breeze. I would recommend this book to any one interested in Mushrooms, I for one could not do without it!!

Still the best guide for identifying European fungi June 21 2004
By Christopher J. Sharpe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book when it came out in the early 1980s for identifying British fungi. At the time it was revolutionary as the use of photographs allowed the author to depict mushrooms much more accurately than the paintings of earlier guides. It is still one of the top field guides to this region (also check Courtecuisse & Duhem and Jordan). I still use this volume a lot for identifying American fungi, both in the tropics and North America. Although I have over 200 field guides of different sorts on my shelves this remains one of my all time favourites. If you're interested in fungi, don't hesitate.

Essential! Aug. 13 2013
By Ale is for winners - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This identification guide is as old as I am but remains the most in-depth and informative guide available. An invaluable resource for any collector of fungi containing not only beautiful colour photographs but size, alternative descriptions, history of the genus and even an edibility rating e.g. "Edible, but really not worth while".

For the more technology friendly out there, I believe Roger Phillips has now developed a fungus ID app too...
