    I am attempting to purchase a couple of books. Your system tells me my address is NOT valid. I have lived here for over 30 years.

    Please tell me what the issue is.

    Great book. Pictures great info. Includes "look alike" descriptions to mitigate misidentification.

    Too bad Michael Hagene provided poor feedback on a website technical issue.

    I have this book, and I love it. So easy to look up the different mushrooms. Thanks for a great book.

    The image and entry on Boletus bicolor is incorrect. That is most definitely not a bicolor. Appears to be aligned with Xerocomellus (I doubt it is Xerocomus, but it is definitely xerocomoid).

    Otherwise a good book. I don't have the expertise to check the other species in detail, but I do for the boletes.
