'At last we have an accessible guide to the wonderland of Fungi... This is a fantastic book in every sense. Perhaps surprisingly, it's also an enjoyable read.'
BBC Wildlife Magazine
'It opens up a whole new kingdom... the dust jacket is wonderfully traditional... this book will stand as a remarkable volume in this much loved series.'
'This is the only book, to my knowledge, to review the full range of living fungi in good, accessible English... Spooner and Roberts deserve our gratitude for producing a book that takes field mycology into the new century without losing its roots in field study.'
British Wildlife Magazine
