    This book is not a field guide to fungi it is much better than that It is full of weird and amazing facts about fungi For instance a fungi may have been the trigger for the Witch Hunting fever that swept through Europe in 16th 17th centuryThe book covers everything from Folklore cultural religious uses of fungi medicinal and culinary uses of fungi fungi in art literature to fungi that glow in the dark and why fairy rings form The book is also loaded with beautiful pictures and written in a very readable and amusing way

    I know next to nothing about mushrooms and yet this knowledge will be reuired of me for my thesis I was uite happy to find Harding's Collins Mushroom Miscellany to help me understand some of the rudimentary basics There were lots of pictures which is always good for a beginner More important for my studies is that throughout the book both the Latin and common names were given I thought this was uite an enjoyable and informative book
