About this book Library Journal writes: "Not simply about mushrooms, this book examines human behavior, economics, food, society, and nature. In the end, readers will have learned a great deal about U.S. economic and social structures—all while being entertained and enlightened by stories of gastronomy and mushrooms. Highly recommended." Publishers Weekly finds it “intrepid and inspired.” The Wall Street Journal calls it a “rollicking narrative…delivering vivid and cinematic scenes on every page.” picked it as one of their Top 10 Best Books of September.

Cook was recently featured on KING 5's Evening Magazine and NPR's The Diane Rehm Show. We're lucky to host him again at EvCC!
