Format: Paperback
Most people buy this book simply because it is an Audubon Society book. (I made this mistake) It seems the author left out important information in an attempt to keep the book field guide sized. By including a few species from every part of the country, the author made this book of little use to anyone who lives in one place. On the other hand, it does have a lot of pictures... Even if they are small, hopelessly jumbled, and labeled with made-up names. (seriously) This book is for people that have some spare money and want to expand their library. I would highly recommend a couple of other books instead: Mushrooms Demystified (The comprehensive text for beginners and experts alike), and All the Rain Promises and More (The field guide).

I purchased this book becase it said Audubon. Thus I expected much more than I received. I was hoping to identify a few mushrooms I had found in my area. After spending a great deal of time, I was able to identify none. There are far better pictures available in other books. For instance the picture of the Shaggy Mane does not look at all like the Shags I have collected and eaten. All in all, a waste of money.

This field guide is so handy to take out with me on hikes through the woods. The size fits into a coat pocket or pocket on a backpack so it's easy to grab for quick reference. I really appreciate that the mushrooms are shown beside other mushrooms that look similar. It makes it possible to quickly notice the subtle difference and make sure I get the edible and tasty ones to take home.
The Audubon Society is my "go to" reference guide for birds, trees.and all things in the natural world. I'm never disappointed in their books.

This book is among the best for identifying mushrooms and learning whether they are edible or not. I have purchased numerous books on mushrooms but this one stands out as the quickest and most efficient way to identify edible mushrooms.

I am not a book critic but a simple layman with a passive interest in edible mushrooms.
I found the book impressive, it covers the subject well, however after viewing your pocket edition I liked the picture and the description on the same sheet very easy to find and less confusing.

I would also suggest in the description when you give information on a look-alike it is very difficult to compare information as it is presented now, instead of giving the scientific name which most people cannot relate to, I suggest to just give the illustration number and then people can look at the picture and find the reference description page and additional details including the scientific name but your present method is quite awkward and cumbersome. Respectfuly, Peter Bisceglia
