Fungi are neither plant nor animal, but are vital to nearly all living systems. They are the most humble of organisms, breaking down the refuse of other species and returning their nutrients to the soil, and at the same time, they can be incomprehensibly expansive. Not only do fungi perform mind-boggling functions in the natural world, like allowing trees to communicate with each other through mycelial networks, but they are important for everyday processes like converting sugar into alcohol could not take place. Without fungi, we wouldn't have penicillin. It's possible even, that without fungi, human evolution would have occurred very differently. Sheldrake delves into the mysteries of psychedelic mushrooms, exploring the science of these powerful natural drugs and their use over the course of human existence. For any budding mycologist, this book is a must read. (This title may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
