All That the Rain Promises and More: A Hip Pocket Guide to Western Mushrooms
Ten Speed Press
Best Little Field Guide in print
When you start exploring mushrooms there are so many "guides" and so much information out there you'll get a migraine trying to find something that works for you. This little book is fun, practical, interesting - best little book I found. If you are new to this "culinary" sport - start here - you won't be disappointed.

Mushroom Cultivator: A Practical Guide to Growing Mushrooms at Home
J. S. Chilton
This book is one of two I bought, the other being by the same autor and entitled "Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms". This one fills in where the other is lacking, the two complement each other well. This book walks you through growing mushrooms a bit more in detail than the other book as far as forming substrates, culturing mushrooms, etc. For anyone wanting to grow mushrooms I would ...

If this is the bible, who is Arora?
As a beginning student of the wily mushroom, I saw this book at the elbow of almost every experienced hunter - even professors of mycology! Clearly a must-have. My use of the book is a work in progress, but the author's humor and fine general advice about mushrooming have already transformed my efforts from clueless bumbling to intermediate bumbling. I am actually making identifications of the ...
Psilocybin Mushroom Handbook: Easy Indoor and Outdoor Cultivation
L. G Nicholas
Quick American Archives
Informative, thorough and detailed.
This has got to be one of (or maybe the) most extensive books on indoor/outdoor psilocybe cultivation. This book to mushrooms is what Jorge Cervantes' "Indoor/outdoor medical horticulture bible" is to herb. Almost any question you have about cultivating, cloning, reproducing, substrates, spores and different species is covered in this book. Although somewhat of a small book, i don't think ...
National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms (National Audubon Society Field Guides)
Gary H. Lincoff
This is definitely the most user friendly 'shroom ID book I've seen yet. I met Gary Lincoff a year ago and posed the question, "Would you feel comfortable sending someone out to forage with this book" and his response was a firm yes. Well, I think he is correct.
The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet
Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
How a book can last a lifetime
I won't describe the plot of this book, as a large percentage of reviewers in here have done that, so I rather speak about how this book made me feel. It seems to be a wonderfully recurring theme. I was about 11 (I am 41 now) when I first read this book, translated into Spanish as part of a juvenile collection. The book was originally my sister's, but became mine very quickly (I still have ...
Mushrooming without Fear: The Beginner's Guide to Collecting Safe and Delicious Mushrooms
Perfect for beginners looking for edibles
This book has clear guidelines and excellent photographs. No nonsense and easy to follow. As novice mushroom seekers who really just want to find snacks, this is a solid book to start with. No morels included - but they're easy to ID. Only wish would be a smaller size to stuff in a backpack. Worthy purchase!
Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World: An Identification Guide
Ten Speed Press
Best Guide Book
A very informative book, and much needed when mushroom hunting. Best collection of photos I have ever seen. Having purchased almost every other book on this subject, I would recommend this be the only one you need.
Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms
Ten Speed Press
Informative and Fun!
I've just begun reading this book. I've read the first 3 chapters of the third edition. I am enjoying it because it is clearly written. The scientific information is well explained. The explanations are illustrated when appropriate. Black and white as well as glossy color photos compliment the text. The table of contents, bibliography, and photo/illustration credits are well organized ...

The Sacred Mushroom and The Cross: A study of the nature and origins of Christianity within the fertility ...
John M. Allegro
Gnostic Media Research & Publishing
Way Ahead of his time.
John Marco Allegro's Sacred Mushroom and the Cross is not going to enhance your faith. Allegro was a Christian minister when he was asked to interpret the scrolls. It was here that he realized that linguistic formulas and his knowledge of multiple languages could bring into focus the mentality and meaning of words and names that had been mysteries for thousands of years. The names of the gods ...

Mushrooms Are Tops

Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest: Timber Press Field Guide (Timber Press Field Guides)
It does have edibility information
Some reviewers have taken our book to task for lack of edibility information and use of Latin names for the mushrooms. Some clarification is in order. Previous reviewer's comment: "Excellent book for identification but it doesn't tell you if the mushrooms are edible or not." There are 466 species illustrated and described. Edibility is explicitly discussed in 139 of the descriptions. ...

Gregory M. Mueller
University of Illinois Press
best mushroom book I've ever seen!
This book is so much fun! It's a great read, and knowing about edible mushrooms really enhances our family hikes, not to mention our meals. I bought this book just in time for morel season this spring, and we've been eating wild mushrooms of various kinds ever since. (We just finished a hen-of-the-woods, and have a bag of oysters ready to fry up for supper.) This field guide is so much ...
Mushroom in the Rain
Russian by Mirra Ginsburg
It's a shame this book is no longer in print
As I look back, this book is one of my fondest memories. I remember having it read to me as child, knowing the words by heart, the beautiful pictures drawing me into the world of the story. I can still see those pictures in my mind and they bring a smile to my face even now all these many years later. If you can find it for your child either used or in a library, get it. It will be a ...
Field Guide to the Wild Mushrooms of Pennsylvania And the Mid-atlantic (Keystone Book)
Pennsylvania State Univ Pr
I was able to meet the author of this book. I found both the book and the author very helpful. Bill has been hunting mushrooms all his life, and actually Penn State Press came to him to write this book and with good reason. The book has great photos and useful descriptions that are useful for the novice mushroom hunters, but plenty helpful for the experinced too. The author also give mushroom ...
100 Edible Mushrooms
University of Michigan Press
This is my third mushroom guide, and so far is my favorite, followed closely by "Audubon's Field Guide to Mushrooms". The photos in Michael Kuo's book are wonderful, the descriptions are clear, and I especially like that it has a section especially for "beginners" (of which I am one) that describes a few edibles that aren't easily confused with anything else. This section has helped me to locate ...
Hallucinogenic and Poisonous Mushroom Field Guide
I like this book.
The information is clear and easy to understand. Perhaps some piece of data are a bit out-dated, but it is still recommended by me to others as a basic reference guide and starting point for learning about said varieties of wild mushrooms. It is pocket-sized, the illustrations are nice, includes a broad enough treatment of Panaeolus mushroom species, and the price is great.
Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America: A Field-to-kitchen Guide
David W. Fischer
Alan E. Bessette
University of Texas Press
It's a Keeper!
A great addition to our "Mushroom Library" Any knowledge we can gain in this field is a benefit. There were some realistic recipes and a few that made us wish Spring would hurry up so we could go "shrooming" for some of the mushrooms we haven't tried yet. The photos and key to identification were excellent. We checked this on the dozen or so mushrooms we know well and everything was right on, ...
