NAMA Book Reviews

Our reviews provide a useful tool for deciding which of the most recently published mycological related books would be useful for your skill level and interests, and which would be the most valuable for your library. We often provide a link to the publisher's website.

NAMA’s Literature Committee is responsible for providing reviews of books, DVDs and other electronic media, software programs, and smartphone apps for the society’s newsletter, The Mycophile. A selection of previously published reviews is available below.

Publishers and authors desiring to have their works reviewed, NAMA members with suggestions for reviews, and NAMA members wishing to do a review should contact Steve Trudell, Chair of the Literature Committee, by email, to make the necessary arrangements.
