Description

In Mycophilia, accomplished food writer and cookbook author Eugenia Bone examines the role of fungi as exotic delicacy, curative, poison, and hallucinogen, and ultimately discovers that a greater understanding of fungi is key to facing many challenges of the 21st century. Engrossing, surprising, and packed with up-to-date science and cultural exploration, Mycophilia is part narrative and part primer for foodies, science buffs, environmental advocates, and anyone interested in learning a lot about one of the least understood and most curious organisms in nature.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Lots of interesting stories

Plenty of interesting stories and information but it doesn't go into many details on particular subjects like growing or identification.

Very interesting at every turn

I don't have much to add to all the other reviews I've seen of this book. The only downside is the quality of the recording. It sounds like it was recorded on a laptop.

A relatable story of Mushroom love

And now I want to connect with my local mycological association.

I will be buying this one in hardcover though, apparently the book is loaded with beautiful drawings and visual treats.

Not just about food

If you could sum up Mycophilia in three words, what would they be?

Solid Mushroom information

Who was your favorite character and why?

There is only the narrator, however she talks at length about the characters she has met while mushroom hunting

Have you listened to any of Aimee Jolson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

first time listener

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud several times. I was also shocked and stunned by several factoids as well.

Any additional comments?

It took me a bit of time to warm up to the tone of the author. I thought that it would basically be all about food and strange mushroom people. The content is far deeper and incredibly well researched with lots of solid thinking and deduction about her own experiences. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Good book, shockingly bad narration

The book and content was good. Interesting and accessible.

But I had no idea one could become an audiobook narrator while mispronouncing so many basic English words. I don't mean the Latin names or location names (though it was clear no effort was even made to sound these out). No, I mean basic English words were said completely wrong. Reminded me of my college roommate who pronounced Viagra "vee-ah-gra".

Keep browsing, there are better choices available

I really wanted to like this book. It does contain "some" useful information. I downloaded the audio version for a long drive. If it had been a paper version, I would have put it down.
The author uses a chatty gossipy and often condescending writing style that can most charitably be described as annoying.
Can't recommend it.

Not for me

I thought it was going an enlightening book on mushroom identification, it was not, I was very disappointed.

Perfect!

I am so grateful that I came across this book when searching for a beginner's type book about fungi. I learned so much from Eugenia's experiences, and had many questions answered. If I wasn't obsessed before, I certainly am now! Thank you, Eugenia!
