"Excellent descriptions, taxonomic synonyms, [and] habitat descriptions." --Choice "The book is beautiful. I know it's practical, and it's got a lot of information, but just to flip through it and look at the diversity of the mushrooms--I find it really interesting." --The Weekend Gardener "Comprehensively definitive and thoroughly user friendly." --Midwest Book Review "Offers the best combination of sufficiently comprehensive descriptions and large, close at hand photos." --The Mycophile "Most new publications on mushrooms [were] of little help until Baroni published his Mushrooms of the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada in 2017. . . . made mushroom study as interesting for me as when I first saw Lincoff's book back in 1981." --Orillia Packet and Times "Concise and informative field guide that surely will become a standard reference for mushroom hunters in the Northeast!" --The New Jersey Mycological Association "This volume is a clear and impressive standout which can be recommended without reservation. . . . It deserves to become a standard reference and will doubtless soon be seen as a faithful companion volume on forays throughout its target area." --Long Island Mycological Club "A wise and user-friendly book. . . truly wonderful." --Coventry Courier
