The Handbook of Applied Mycology is actually in 5 volumes.  The subtitles 
are: Soil and Plants; Humans, Animals, and Insects; Foods and Feeds; Fungal 
Biotechnology; and Mycotoxins in Ecological Systems.  The $750 probably 
refers to the whole set, each book can be purchased individually for a 
lesser price.  The volume on Fungal Biotechnology contains 34 chapters, many 
of them written by world experts in the field.  (Of course, since I am one 
of those authors, albeit not a world expert, my opinion is not 
entirely objective!)
