It's a worthy addition to your bookshelf. A "must" for the shelf of the mycophagist. An attractive, well-produced book...with lots of information, at a reasonable price. -- Steve Trudell "Mycophile" (05/31/2004) Interesting reading for those who are intrigued by these strange creations of nature. -- Suzanne Hively "Cleveland Plain Dealer" (09/25/2003) Excellent color photos, detailed descriptions and simple keys enable the reader to identify many common and important mushrooms. -- Virgil Rupp "Northwest Books" (11/16/2003) A very readable, concise, and yet thorough overview of many of the more important economic fungal species consumed by humans. -- Eric P. Burkhart "Economic Botany" (09/26/2005) A nice incorporation of information for those interested in mushroom cultivation, wild harvesting, or just appreciating the denizens of the fungal kingdom. -- Michelle A. Briggs "Plant Science Bulletin" (09/16/2004) Outstanding tips on how to cultivate the top eight species grown and eaten worldwide. Beautifully illustrated with outstanding photographs, certainly the best this reviewer has ever seen. -- J. Dawson "Choice" (02/29/2004) This is an ambitious undertaking ... and the result is a highly informative and useful text that doubles as a field guide. This book is sure to become an essential resource for mushroom aficionados and mycology professionals. The photographs are absolutely beautiful, and will likely inspire me to brave fall game hunting seasons (decked out in fluorescent colors, of course) to do some mushroom hunting. -- Michelle A. Briggs "Plant Science Bulletin" (07/01/2004) Truly international in its coverage, "Edible and Poisonous Mushrooms of the World" is an introduction to the world of mushrooms, which will appeal to naturalists, students, photograhers, chefs, hikers, and potential growers around the world. Timber Press has done its usual fine job of production, and the price is right for a hardbound volume with lots of color pictures. I recommend the book, especially for anyone with a particular interest in truffles or commercial production of other edibles. -- Ian R. Hall "Mushroom" (10/18/2003) This concise introduction to mushrooms is profusely illustrated with often superb color photographs. It is an excellent starting point for anyone who wants to learn more about them, and a valuable resource for teachers of mycology, microbiology, or food science. -- Felix Barlocher "Quarterly Review of Biology" (03/09/2004) I know all interested in exactly which types can be eaten will find this book just what they have been looking for. The photographs are superb and allow for easy and quick identification and having 'edible' or 'poisonous' in bold print at the end of each caption is most commendable. -- John E. Bryan "Gardening Newsletter" (11/20/2003) The authors, both biologists and mycologists, present clear scientific information. An A-Z listing gives descriptions, a few facts about each mushroom, cautionary rules, and tips on cooking, when appropriate. -- Kathi Keville "American Herb Association Quarterly Newsletter" (01/01/2006) " Outstanding tips on how to cultivate the top eight species grown and eaten worldwide. Beautifully illustrated with outstanding photographs, certainly the best this reviewer has ever seen." -- J. Dawson, Choice, February 2004 " This is an ambitious undertaking ... and the result is a highly informative and useful text that doubles as a field guide. This book is sure to become an essential resource for mushroom aficionados and mycology professionals." -- Northeastern Naturalist, December 2005 " The authors, both biologists and mycologists, present clear scientific information. An A- Z listing gives descriptions, a few facts about each mushroom, cautionary rules, and tips on cooking, when appropriate." -- Kathi Keville, American Herb Association Quarterly Newsletter, Winter 2006 "This is an ambitious undertaking ... and the result is a highly informative and useful text that doubles as a field guide.
