Can psychedelic drugs improve our lives?
Michael Pollan thinks so and he makes a pretty persuasive case in his latest book How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence.
This is good stuff.
Pollan elegantly blends science – medicine – memoir – travel writing and history in a dazzlingly authoritative dive into his subject matter.
If you want to read only one book on psychedelics – make it this one.
