ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- I've always been interested in the visible manifestations of fungi, mushrooms and toadstools and lichens, and what little I knew of mycorrhizal fungi was intriguing. But until I read this fabulous book I didn't know a fraction of how surprising the fungal kingdom is - and it turns out that even scientists actually have only a fraction of understanding about this amazing - and dominant - life-form!
This book is a vivid blend of personal anecdote, astonishing tales (I reckon the zombie insects will haunt my nightmares!) fascinating explanations, eye-opening concepts and extremely thorough and rigorous scientific reportage. It is exhaustively footnoted and while Sheldrake is obviously passionate about his subject, he takes no sides on the various debates raging through the world of mycology, but presents all arguments calmly and clearly. It is a book to re-read, as the ideas are so extraordinary and the writing so engaging that it will repay multiple reads.
This should do for fungi, what Wohlleben did for trees (and dare I say, it's much better written) - I don't think anyone who reads this will ever look at fungi in the same way again! Lindy Jones
