Really good information. It's small enough to put in your pocket.
   Good book for the size
I get so tired of looking at reviews, but they were right on this one.
   Great companion while foraging!
It's a good size for a shoulder bag, and can carry all your favourite accessories in the front pocket of your backpack. Very useful book, full of great illustration and description.
   Excellent Resource!
Hey guys, I am new to mushroom foraging and have one other book on mushroom identification. I'd prefer to have had the horse's name etched on the plaque. Separate sections for common edibles, common toxic species, and then the many other varieties. Not surprisingly, these two edible worlds also give you information on any potential health risks associated with eating them. This will be my go to for now, at least until I find something I like better, but I think I'll be hard-pressed to find a better resource.
Nice little field,would prefer it to expand into psyoactive locals also for educational purposes.
   Worth way more than what you pay. Buy.
A great little book. Pictures are very clear and colorful, making them easy to read. Even smaller than I anticipated, I think that is especially beneficial if it is being taken out of the field with you. Even on the smaller side the text is still easily readable. For those who love mushy things, I would highly recommend this book.
   There's a fungus among-us
While I still won't be eating any of the interesting mushrooms that seem to crop up like well, MUSHROOMS, in the conservation area near our house, this great little pocket-guide fits in your back pocket to take with you on walks and pull out when you discover a fungus among us. It includes information on toxicity, but mushrooms still scare me.. so for now, I'll just admire them.
   small but decently informative
For $15, I kind of expected a bigger book, somewhere between 600 and 1,000 species. The new taxes won't kick in until October 1, but the impact could be felt well into the new year. It's easy to read, the pictures are good, but it has to have real pictures, not drawings, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's that small for a feather, but I doubt I'd bring it because there are so few species. I have six books on the subject, and I recommend the National Audubon Society field guide. The book is also available in hardback, 900 pages. HBO said it was negotiating with Crave and McCann to buy the rights to "American Masters."
   My Favorite Mushroom Hunting Resource
I've taken out numerous resource books on identifying wild mushrooms, and this is by far my favorite. There are other good ones out there, either for the very beginner or the more experienced, but I'm kind of in-between. I do have the latter book, and it's very good, but I needed one that was a bit simpler to complement it. Together, the guide and I make it easier for me to ID what I've collected. I would never consume a wild mushroom that I wasn't absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt that it was safe, said Dr. Julie Gerberding, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Before you embark on your mushroom hunting adventure, it is vital to know what you don't know about mushrooms in North America.
   Tiny Little Volume with Great Photos
It's highly portable because it's so small, it's well-made, the pictures are glossy and clear, and every mushroom has a description including whether it's edible, but photos of look-alikes that could be toxic. This is by far the best forager I have ever met.
