This timely book is for anyone seeking to better understand the great promise of fungi and their various applications within food, medicine, psychedelics, and environmental remediation. 

The kingdom of fungi has survived all five major extinction events. They sustain critical ecosystems, recycling nutrients and connecting plants across vast areas, and help to produce many staples of modern life, such as wine, chocolate, bread, detergent, and penicillin. Today, in the face of urgent ecological, societal, and spiritual crises, fungi are being engineered to grow meat alternatives, create new sources of medicine, produce sustainable biomaterials, and even expand our collective consciousness.

The Future Is Fungi is a complete introduction to this hidden kingdom. Exploring their past, present, and potential future impact in four key areas―food, medicine, psychedelics and mental health, and environmental remediation―this resource reveals how fungi have formed the foundations of modern life.

Featuring eighteen mushroom profiles, authors Michael Lim and Yun Shu contextualize each species in history and mythology, alongside their medicinal and culinary uses. Easy-to-follow for the beginner, with rich, informative texts, awe-inspiring 3D digital art, and tips on how to immerse yourself in the world of fungi, this is a manifesto for the future. This beautifully illustrated book is an invitation into a deeper awareness of our relationship with the natural world, each other, and ourselves.
