BLURBS #"Nicholas Money's book tells vivid, occasionally lurid tales of a fantastic cast of human characters and fungal species. ... It's sarcastic, funny, and smart, and the mushrooms are lucky to have Money as their storyteller."
-- Anne Pringle, Harvard University
"As Nicholas Money shows, fungi are some of the most successful organisms on Earth at our expense. The Triumph of the Fungi masterfully surveys just how much destruction fungal diseases have wreaked on humans."
-- Carl Zimmer, author of A Planet of Viruses and Parasite Rex
"No one today can tell a complex and interesting scientific story like Nicholas Money. This is a must-read for any professional or amateur mycologist, or simply those curious about nature. Money's wit and wisdom will have you laughing out loud and fascinated by the impact of fungi in our daily lives."
-- Thomas N. Taylor, University of Kansas
"It is a seriously good read, packed with interesting and unexpected asideas and notes, so you never quite know what to expect--enthusiasm and excitement exude from every page. ... This is a book all mycologists should read, and one that should be compulsory in plant pathology courses."
-- Mycological Research
