    Cosmic Serpent is a good start

    This is a must read for anyone interested in DNA, the I CHING, psychedelics and shamanism. It's a good companion to any of Terence Mckenna's work and is an interesting and easy read, by this I mean it doesnt contain alot of technical and esoteric jargon that may be lost on the uninitiated. I think it's a good introductory read on the subject.

    Excellent overview for the layperson

    Though its ideas are no longer new to western academia, the book remains the most serious and informative overview for the beginning student of ayahuasca practice. The flaws of scientific paradigms applied to studies are admitted and beneficially examined to bring the potential wisdom of the shamans into serious consideration. Though i knew of this trend of thought since 1994, much in this presentation remains revelatory upon my first careful reading of this book in 2012.
