Messiah, martyr, and high priest of the psychedelic, Dr Timothy Leary speaks out in this extraordinary testament.

Dr Leary was first plunged into the mind-expanding visionary maelstrom one sunny afternoon in Cuernavaca, when he ate a handful of sacred mushrooms; in this startlingly candid collection of essays in defence of the ecstasy he discovered for the first time that afternoon are the documents of his own spiritual search and the fantastic entrance to the psychedelic world.

‘Dr Leary is a hero of American consciousness.’

“Timothy Leary is the sanest, funniest, wisest man I’ve ever met’

Great condition. If it wasn’t for the very small amount of wear on the edge of the spine I would have classified it as ‘like new’.
