Take a walk in the woods, look toward your feet and below you you’ll find some of the most complex organisms on the planet: fungi. We don’t really give them the attention they deserve, except perhaps mushrooms at the dining table, but Merlin Sheldrake’s marvelous tour of these diverse and extraordinary life forms is eye-opening on why humans should consider fungi among the greatest of earth’s marvels. He explains in wondrous detail how fungi adapt, communicate with each other, share nutrients and spread to almost every corner of our planet.
