The guide classifies the majority of North American mushrooms into 14 groups. However, I think they could have easily used only 8. The objective here is not scientific rigor, so I see no reason to Good resource good pictures perhaps a bit technical sounding at times. Need to refer to back and forth to photos which are all grouped together. All in all very decent. Gary H.
I doubt, a mushroom exists in our country which is not depicted in this wonderful book with its beautiful color photos. The step by step instructions how to tell the correct mushroom are easy and well laid out. A full-color field guide with helpful features. Could be made better with a more in-depth descriptions of the habitats for the various species, a more visible edibility section and a photo by each of the fungi descriptions. Handy but could be better. The book has extensive knowledge with great photos and descriptive information.
