The cover of the Truffle Guide at left and a sample page at right. The guide is organized alphabetically by genus and species. Each truffle species has photos of the truffle and its spores, a written description of when and where it is found, and comments on edibility and other characteristics. The book's introduction has a wealth of information about truffle ecology, responsible harvesting methods, edibility, and other relevant information. At the end is a glossary of mycological terms and translations of the latin and greek words that make up scientific truffle names.
