Publisher's Summary

In Mycophilia, accomplished food writer and cookbook author Eugenia Bone examines the role of fungi as exotic delicacy, curative, poison, and hallucinogen, and ultimately discovers that a greater understanding of fungi is key to facing many challenges of the 21st century. Engrossing, surprising, and packed with up-to-date science and cultural exploration, Mycophilia is part narrative and part primer for foodies, science buffs, environmental advocates, and anyone interested in learning a lot about one of the least understood and most curious organisms in nature.

Good book, shockingly bad narration

The book and content was good. Interesting and accessible.

But I had no idea one could become an audiobook narrator while mispronouncing so many basic English words. I don't mean the Latin names or location names (though it was clear no effort was even made to sound these out). No, I mean basic English words were said completely wrong. Reminded me of my college roommate who pronounced Viagra "vee-ah-gra".
