"Living at the border between life and non-life, fungi use diverse cocktails of potent enzymes and acids to disassemble some of the most stubborn substances on the planet, turning rock into soil and wood into compost, allowing plants to grow. Fungi not only help create soil, they send out networks of tubes that enmesh roots and link plants together in the "Wood Wide Web." Fungi also drive many long-standing human fascinations: from yeasts that cause bread to rise and orchestrate the fermentation of sugar into alcohol; to psychedelic fungi; to the mold that produces penicillin and revolutionized modern medicine. And we can partner with fungi to heal the damage we've done to the planet. Fungi are already being used to make sustainable building materials and wearable leather, but they can do so much more. Fungi can digest many stubborn and toxic pollutants from crude oil to human-made polyurethane plastics and the explosive TNT. They can grow food from renewable sources: edible mushrooms can be grown on anything from plant waste to cigarette butts. And some fungi's antiviral compounds might be able to ease the colony collapse of bees. Merlin Sheldrake's revelatory introduction to this world will show us how fungi, and our relationships with them, are more astonishing than we could have imagined. Bringing to light science's latest discoveries and ingeniously parsing the varieties and behaviors of the fungi themselves, he points us toward the fundamental questions about the nature of intelligence and identity this massively diverse, little understood kingdom provokes"--… (més)

What a fun book to read. Sheldrake is a good writer and he knows a lot of interesting stuff. And he’s a bit of a lovable weirdo. And a good scientist! Also, fungus is very intriguing and an important part of life on earth. I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes natural science who isn’t afraid of a tiny touch of silliness. ( )

I bought this book at an exhibition in Kyoto in late 2022. It’s a lovely collection of the art of Konoshima Okoku though it focuses mainly on his paintings and sketches of animals there were other works in the exhibition (and in the book also). He was clearly influenced by Chinese painters and the work demonstrates this influence. But, I find his animal paintings just superb….. and the book has enlarged a few of the sections within the paintings to give one a closer look at the detail and the technique. There is one painting of cows in a dairy pp40-43 which I just love. I think it was a screen ….. so very long and able to capture both the farmers bringing ib the hay with the cows looking very contented in the dairy. But lovingly captured and delicate colouration. The cover illustration is also screen in the original …. With a small fox in the snow in the middle of a bamboo grove. It appears to be monochrome but apparently there is some green tea colour applied to the bamboo trunks. There is a lovely sense of balance about the whole work with a concentration of the forest and the fox towards the centre and a sparse half moon on the upper right. A lovely work.
I really enjoyed the exhibition (though it was a cold wet day in Kyoto). Also loved the sketch of three artists sketching…… apparently cold and raining? presumably this is Okoku and friends but it demonstrates the sheer hard work that went into achieving the finished paintings. I must confess that I’ve just spent a lot of time with Google translate on this book and been totally confused because it translates Okoku’s name as something completely different and I couldn’t understand who this “Sakuradani Kajima” was that they kept referring to. Assume it’s alternatives for the Kanji.
But really love the paintings and the work. Happy to give this five stars. ( )

It was interesting to hear about pervasive fungi are. And they can "think" in the sense of solving problems like optimal routine. They can also grow incredibly fast and apparently can form networks for distributing nutrients symbiotically to plants. The personal psilocybin anecdotes were a bit fanciful, however. ( )

Enjoy! ( )

Everything I never knew I wanted to know about fungi. Sheldrake clearly loves his field of study and he writes about it in an almost poetic manner. I ended up listening to the audio while I read the book physically, and that was an excellent choice, as Sheldrake does a great job narrating the audiobook.

I'm also very much in the market for some solid science fiction featuring fungi. ( )
