This collection of essays & articles became one of the best-selling LSD books of the '60s. Later printings are easy to find. It was conceived at a time when psychedelic research was still mainly an academic concern for shrinks & MDs. The tone is rather dry & technical. However the contributors are very impressive--a virtual who's who of the original scene. Editor David Solomon went on to new adventures as author of "The Marihuana Papers" & hands-on involvement with the "Brotherhood of Eternal Love" in the 1970s.
