Gary Lincoff is the author, co-author, or editor of several books and articles on mushrooms. He teaches courses on mushroom and plant identification and use at the New York Botanical Garden and has led wild mushroom and edible wild plant study trips and forays to 30 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, and South, Central, and North America. Lincoff chaired the Telluride Mushroom Festival for 25 years (1980–2004), and still participates as its principal speaker. He is also a featured “myco visionary” in the award-winning documentary, Know Your Mushrooms, by Ron Mann.

Mushrooms are beautiful things. This book opened my eyes to the beauty of mushrooms, like the smells of individual mushrooms. I find it pleasing to go on a mushroom hunt; it helps me reduce stress from work and my everyday life, etc. But there is no way I would eat a mushroom based on this guide.
Highly recommended as a unique gift or coffee table book, or for the new fungi hobbyist!
*This book could take twice less space that it does, without losing its content.
*The statement:"the only mushroom book you will ever need" is far away from the truth.
*needs complimentary Field Gide
*identification key- I would like to see more information/details
I took this book for mushroom hunting, and was disappointed,on how uncomfortable it was to carry.
*good average information on mushrooms
*excellent quality of the book
*will be good start(introduction) for beginners and new to mushroom hunting.
I would like to see Second Edition of this book with more identification key, and please, make it more portable!
It can be easily done by decreasing size of the book, and increasing number of the same (info)pages by publisher.
