    This is a great beginner book!

    One of the most important thing when learning mushrooms with the intent of learning edible ones, is also learning the poison ones. I have given this book to several of my friends that wish to learn about edibles and they find it far less frustrating than looking through most guides that have hundreds of mushrooms in them. John has several good pictures of each mushroom, and talks about the look-a-likes and dangers. There are so many good edibles in the North Eastern US that a beginner can easily learn several good mushrooms, if not MOST of these in one season. (This was a great year with lots of rain this fall) Finding and being sure (with the help of an expert to confirm the ID) of a bunch of good edibles in a short time is a very good way to get interest started keep it going for the long term!
    Thank you John for sharing your expertise!
