How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence by Michael Pollan | Book Summary | OneHour Reads
In the book How to Change Your Mind, Michael Pollan traces the eventful history of psychedelics, from Hofmann’s first encounter with LSD to the first surge of research into the field to the widespread abuse and misuse followed by a federal government ban and the recent resurrection of psychedelic research. Psychedelics are probably the world’s most controversial class of drugs, and in this book, he narrates how they got their reputation.
Pollan is careful to correct the popular conclusion that Timothy Leary was the beginning and end of psychedelics. The author’s depth of research is obvious, as he chronicles the lives and contributions of scientists, therapists, religious leaders, and countless others who have a place in the psychedelics story.
