An all-star group of mycology experts joins forces with a time-lapse photographer to produce this gorgeous, fascinating book that reveals and celebrates fungal mysteries. A companion to the groundbreaking documentary of the same name, it contains extended transcripts as well as new essays by food experts, biochemists, ecologists, doctors, and explorers. While the essays are though-provoking, the real glory of this book is the astonishing photographs. The power of mushrooms will blow your mind, and quite possibly save the world.
