Clear, easy to read, and very informative book.

The author also put enough caution into his book that a reader would find out that one can never be too careful when consuming wild mushrooms.

You just never know when or where you might spot an interesting fungi!

As an avid schroomer and an educator in collecting and identifying mushrooms most folks I know always ask the question "is it edible?". This book helps to answer that question. The author also put enough caution into his book that a reader would find out that one can never be too careful when consuming wild mushrooms. The pictures and descriptions are excellant. The author also goes into the relationship between certain trees and the mushroom itself. This helps the new schroomer know where to search for a certain species. A great help on this subject!!!!!!

This is my third mushroom guide, and so far is my favorite, followed closely by "Audubon's Field Guide to Mushrooms". The photos in Michael Kuo's book are wonderful, the descriptions are clear, and I especially like that it has a section especially for "beginners" (of which I am one) that describes a few edibles that aren't easily confused with anything else. This section has helped me to locate safe edibles in my area. I'm loving this book and carry it with me in my vehicle. You just never know when or where you might spot an interesting fungi! I highly recommend this book!

This is a lovely big paperback with great prose, super photos, and lots of interesting facts. The author has a fun sense of humor and I often laugh out loud while reading it. HOWEVER, I bought this book because it was advertised as a mushroom book/cookbook. There are only a few recipes, and many of the mushrooms listed get a recommendation like, "replace the chanterelles in X recipe with these boletes" In other words, few recipes with a lot of uses. I expected at least half a cookbook. I'm glad I have it, and I have been using it and enjoying it, but don't buy it if all you want is the recipes.

Kuo is an amazing writer making this book one of my best purchases this year. Thorough and yet and incredibly easy read even for a layman. Recommended for anybody studying mushrooms regardless of experience level.

This is a beautiful book that is a wonderful addition to my collection of mushroom books. The large, full color photos are especially appreciated.

If you want to expand your knowledge of mushrooms and enjoy reading well written and sometimes entertaining mushroom lore in easy-to-understand plain English, you will love this book.

All the measurements are metric. Since my brain refuses to make the conversion, I read the descriptions with a ruler that features inches and centimeters in hand.

The section on poisonous mushrooms is especially good, and the Focus Points are great. I keep returning to this book again and again after consulting other mushroom guides, and it often answers questions about specific mushrooms that the other books leave unanswered.

I also use Michael Kuo's excellent online identification keys for mushrooms not covered in this book.

Highly recommended.

I purchased this for my mushroom hunting brother in law for Christmas. I wanted to make sure that what he found and ate was safe as I really do love him. After looking over a number of books, both online and in bookstores, I ordered this. It is a super book with tons of information. He loved it so much he stopped unwrapping Christmas presents to read his new book. I was very pleased with the quality, information and price.

Kuo's 100 Edible Mushrooms is a fantastic addition to any mushroomer's library. Fairly new to mushrooms, I found this book to be very easily read and understood; the information is very thorough. The focus points were a great addition to the text.
