I ordered this along with the Audobon Field Guide and they both arrived yesterday. Within minutes of opening this book, I identified 3 of the mushrooms sitting on my kitchen counter that I'd just spent half the day trying to figure out online! Pictures are great because they're color-accurate and show the angles I need, it's organized in a way that's meaningful to me as a beginner, and the descriptions gave me long-overdue insight into concepts I've struggled with such as taxonomy, toxicity effects, and how to tell the difference between an edible delight vs. a gut-wrenching nightmare. He even includes ridiculously simple recipes. Most importantly, as a mushroom noob, his non-condescending, light-hearted humor, and intuitive writing style gave me the confidence to feel like I can actually do this.
That said, I am blown away by the knowledge packed into this little pocket-sized book.
It was recommended by a mushroom hunter who is teaching us the ropes and I don't think he could have recommended a more helpful book.
