Collins Gem Mushrooms
A great guide to help you distinguish between varieties of mushrooms and toadstools, with particularly good advice on those varieties that look very similar. Spore colours are important when trying to tell the difference between types, so the book explains that if you are in any doubt between two mushrooms, you can tell which one you can eat by the spores!
One thing I would have prefered with the layout of the book is to have had a full edible section, inedible section and poisonous section. Usefully, the guide is categorised into colour coded families which is helpful.
The only other issue is that some mushrooms are listed as Inedible yet they tell you what they taste like or advise that they are not substatial enough. Does this mean that they are edible but it's up to the picker to choose whether they want to spend the time picking them? I think it should be down to the picker to decide if they want to eat it, bitter or tough or small may be what I am after!
