Explore the wonderful world of some of the most incredible natural forms on our planet – fungi.

At the centre of countless superstitions, folkloric tales and magical beliefs, as well as appearing in recipes and medicines both traditional and modern, mushrooms have incredible powers.

Featuring images of over 100 fascinating species, sourced from the archives at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, The Magic of Mushrooms shows that from saving lives to expanding the mind, the potential of these fascinating organisms should not be underestimated.

Review: Do not listen to the american who put 1 star he bought the wrong book. This is a great book written well.

The book is split up into sometimes 1 or 2 page case studies explaining a brief history of that mushroom with a range of topics.

Great cover and art. 4 stars because sometimes there are events or terminologies talked about in the book that aren’t common knowledge and I was not aware of, that are not explained. However, perhaps that is down to my own ignorance.

I love this book. Definitely worth a read
