Shroom Review

I just received this review of Shroom. Always good when someone 'gets' what I was trying to say.


  1. I wrote a book on wild edible fungi for FAO some years ago and I'd be happy to send you a copy if you've not already seen it. I bought Shroom some time back and didn't start to read it until I began to write a chapter on mushrooms in forests for an Earthscan book. It's a brave man who reviews Wasson's contributions. I greatly admired your even-handed assessment and was intrigued to discover facts that have been missing from the rise and rise of RGW. Now I can see clearly. Your analysis doesn't detract from his major achievements but it does give a more accurate perspective. Bravo.

  2. Cheers chap! Be delighted to see your book. Email me off-list and I'll send you my snail mail. Best, Andy xxx
