Reviews

"A wonderful book . . . the best book ever written in this complicated field." * Dr. Timothy Leary *
"Beautifully written . . . Masters and Houston are offering what amounts to a whole new system of psychopathology." * New York Times Book Review *
"Fascinating . . . provocative . . . The first description of the multiplicity of experiences available through these drugs presented in a manner oriented to western culture and experimental research." * Library Journal *
"The most brilliant volume available dealing with the psychedelic experience." * Dr. Stanley Krippner *
"I consider the book very important and worthwhile. It is all in the right direction; it gives very sound directives for controlling the use of psychedelics instead of merely repressing them." * Alan Watts *
