i haven't really perused any other mushroom related books (it's mushroom foraging season and they're all checked out from the library!), but i thought this book was pretty cool! a neat mix of foklore, homeopathy, traditional remedies, and actual science. turns out on my last big hike, i found a lot of super trippy mushrooms (did not pick them). good to know!
Besides that this is an excellent book, I had the opportunity to meet Robert Dale Rogers in person at the Montana Herb Gathering and watched his lecture - he is just fabulous! Amazing knowledge this man has!! This book is mandatory for a working herbalist in North America. Well worth the investment!!
