This humorously (but relevantly!) titled book offers the reader all kinds of tips and tricks for finding all the tastiest mushrooms without accidentally plucking any that might kill you. With detailed and specific guidance on how to identify 29 different edible wild mushrooms, author Frank Hyman will have you foraging for dinner in no time, while making sure that you stay safe. Many other foraging guides are dense and difficult to follow, written for mycologists by mycologists, but Hyman's easygoing and accessible writing can help complete novices start foraging and answer the most vital question: "can I eat it?"
