Awesome! Stared reading and haven't put it down yet. Very informative loaded with great field pictures. No all I need is to find a class of fellow mush-roomers in the area!
Much too large to be a good field guide. This book has some good information but it is not organized as well as it can be. You are better off going with a different field guide.
