Two things that make me want to recommend this book are the emphasis the author puts on describing impostors or "look-a-likes" and the section on toxicity in mushrooms. The author takes great effort to prevent you from accidentally poisoning yourself by eating the wrong mushroom. If you do poison yourself, at least you'll have an idea of the toxin and effects it may have on your system.
Many mushrooms are covered and the book is easy to read and cross-reference. I always use and strongly recommend using multiple sources for identification of plants and fungi. If you're serious about hunting fungi for the table this book is a must have.
