Fun and informative

I really have enjoyed reading this book. I'm a casual mushroom observer, and just wanted to know more about the kinds I see on my walks. This book was everything I hoped it would be, and more. I loved learning more about mushrooms in general, and I love the humor and spirit of the book. I think I will buy the author's other book "Mushrooms Demystified" as well, because I enjoy the breadth and depth of his knowledge, as well as his writing style.

The only shortcoming of this guide is the absence

The only shortcoming of this guide is the absence of "territorial maps" which would help the reader focus on those mushrooms in a particular geographic. Having those would probably raise the price of this excellent guide beyond what many potential buyers would be willing to pay. I, for one, would pay the additional costs for that feature. Hopefully, a future addition will include territorial maps.

Easy to read and understand

Easy to read and understand even for those who struggle in that area like myself. Formatting and outline could be better. Text is also really small. The book’s already thick, so it doesn’t make any sense to cut corners for size.

This is a gorgeous book.

This is a gorgeous book. The photographs are amazing. Fungi names change often, as do families. This is the most up-to-date resource that I have. Although it's targeted to northern California, most of the mushrooms are located in Washington as well. Almost everyone I know who is a mushroom hunter has this book. Worth the money.

Best Mushroom

My husband and I have several books of mushrooms for different places we spend time hiking and this is far and away the best guide we have found. The photos and illustrations are both beautiful and easy to understand, and it makes a big difference when identifying species to have a book so specific to that area, rather than find what you think is a match, only to find out it isn't found in your area. It also allows it to include more, rarer species since it's focused on a specific area / climate, rather than having to do a broad overview of, say, North America, and only being able to cover the most common varieties. Well-written and beautiful!

Best guide to North

This is an easy-to-use guide to mushrooms found on the northern California coast and inland areas. It covers mushrooms that are common, as well as some rare ones. Excellent, clear, full-color photos show the mushrooms in their native habitat. The photos show views of the mushrooms from multiple angles, cut in half, and some stained. The images show you the natural growth form and also a specimen flipped over so you can see the gills and stipe. This helps enormously with identification.

This the most up to date listing of west coast

This the most up to date listing of west coast mushrooms, and includes current species names. The photography is excellent-- clear, crisp and color accurate photos with succinct information and descriptions.
