Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our FuturesEntangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures by Merlin Sheldrake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely mind-blowing! There’s so much about fungi I didn’t know lurking beneath the surface (ha ha) that each page held eye-opening revelations for me. So much of mycelial behavior remains unknown to us, but the radical and startling idea of nonhuman intelligence permeates the book. Fungi have no brains or centralized neural networks, and yet they cultivate, they harvest, they communicate, and in some extreme cases, they control the lives of creatures around them in zombie-like fashion. Sheldrake’s prose is conversational and limned with the joy of discovery, but perhaps most importantly, it is accessible to laypeople. ENTANGLED LIFE is a fast, illuminating, awe-inspiring read that will have you looking at the mushrooms in your salad in a whole new way.
