“For the Western herbalist, the subject of medicinal mushrooms has remained an arcane purview relegated to history, or if in a modern context, to relatively obscure references – mostly in Asian languages. Christopher Hobbs has opened new vistas in Western herbal literature, by providing a comprehensive, accessible, and scientifically accurae portrayal of the medicinal value of fungi. Medicinal Mushrooms is a portal into a fascinating, often neglected world.”Steven Foster
