How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures
07 July 2022

A dizzying and absolutely engrossing delve into the largely unexplored world of fungi.

Sheldrake’s easy-going prose effortlessly holds your hand as he takes a deep dive into some of the unanswered questions about what goes on beneath the soil. What fungi have been proven to be capable of is remarkable, but facts and figures aside what’s really eye opening is how they reveal the sheer interconnectedness of nature. They affect plants and animals, and plants and animals affect them.

I absolutely devoured this book. It’s a perspective-shifting piece of work that lays out the facts then asks us to ponder the unknown.
