"This is not simply another mushroom field guide... People hesitant in mycophagy [mushroom gathering and eating] will find confidence in their abilities by using this book... it should become the most popular field guide on the market---a fixture in everyone's basket." --Barry L. Wulff, Professor Emeritus of Biology, Eastern Connecticut State University
"This is an especially helpful book for new members of our mushroom clubs... For our intermediate members, it is a tool to increase the number of edible species they know and to expand their knowledge on techniques for using edible mushrooms...  The photos are clear and the description of each species includes a discussion of edibility and cooking and storing suggestions... This book will enable you to enjoy a great variety of edible wild mushrooms." --Sandy Sheine, President, Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association. Mushrooms of Northeastern North America
