Find out how fungi make our worlds, change our minds, and shape our futures in this week's fascinating Book of the Week, ENTANGLED LIFE by Merlin Sheldrake. Neither plant nor animal, fungi are found everywhere, but (until now!) have been little understood by the non-specialist public—perhaps because understanding requires a rethinking of our ideas about nature, identity, life, connectedness, and volition. This book is jaw-droppingly interesting throughout.
