Long awaited and bitterly disappointing Today I have finally received my copy of the new Collins Fungi Guide, a book that was announced a long time ago by Collins. I am always trying to find the best side of any book, but in this case I must say that I am really sorry for my money, although I got a substantial discount. 

Mr. J. Horsfall says:

Not good enough As many of the other reviewers have said, this book is a disapointment. The descriptions are too brief, the pictures are too small, the colours of the fungi are sometimes misleading. So as an ID guide it fails in many ways. I understand the need to save space to be able to fit so many species into a single book, but it is not small so why not be a larger book to be a reference at home that is useful? Instead it is rucsack sized book (not pocket) and not as useful as some older less comprehensive books.I’d recommend not to buy this, but have a look at the other books that are available.

Guide Falls Well Short I’d give it only two stars except that means I don;t like it according to this form – I do like some things about it – the amount of info and more species. I bought the hard back version and hoped that the delay of 18 months on the paperback would mean they had corrected some of the mistakes – but no its exactly the same as the hard back. Its such a shame – all those who worked on this have let themselves down – they had a chance to produce one of the best fungi books for decades and they messed it up and continued to produce it ‘messed up’ … If it had’t got so many mistakes and mixed up genera I would have like it but still felt those involved had missed a great opportunity …..
