This is a new reprint of the enlarged second and final edition of the author’s well written and engaging guide to the world of fungi, Reminiscent to some extent of both Mushrooms and Toadstools (1960) by John Ramsbottom  and Fungi (2005) by Brian Spooner and John Roberts, both in the New Naturalist series, the enthusiasm for the subject matter is clearly evident. O’Reilly’s book is largely focused on fungi found in the UK and he approaches the subject in an engaging conversational manner with lots of anecdotal but interesting observations, Covering all the basics, and more, there is a wealth of colour photographs, over 1000 in all, A useful and handsomely produced book for beginners and expert alike

This 2nd edition incorporates recent taxonomic name changes resulting from recent DNA analysis, together with previously common synonyms and the British Mycological Society’s recommended English names of fungi
