I fully expected the book to more clearly indicate which ones are poisonous and which ones are edible. That was my sole purpose for purchasing the book. Very disappointed.

For anyone who appreciates excellent photography and a well-organized format, this book is it. It opens a whole new world of nature to the novice, and serves as a valuable resource for shroomers.

This whole series of guidebooks is excellent, but this one in particular is probably the best accessible mushroom book available right now for our area.
