From the Inside Flap
With more than 700 mushrooms detailed with color photographs and descriptive text, this is the most comprehensive photographic field guide to the mushrooms of North America. The 762 full-color identification photographs show the mushrooms as they appear in natural habitats. Organized visually, the book groups all mushrooms by color and shape to make identification simple and accurate in the field, while the text account for each species includes a detailed physical description, information on edibility, season, habitat, range, look-alikes, alternative names, and facts on edible and poisonous species, uses, and folklore. A supplementary section on cooking and eating wild mushrooms, and illustrations identifying the parts of a mushroom, round out this essential guide.

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
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.

There are not enough pictures or drawings to confidently identify species of mushrooms. Good "coffee table" book but not a "field" guide.Published 3 months ago by Brampton, Ontario
