Summary Of How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence By Michael Pollan | Book Summary | Anthony Young
In the book “How To Change Your Mind”, Michael Pollan traces the eventful history of psychedelics, from Hofmann’s first encounter with LSD to the first surge of research into the field, to the widespread abuse and misuse followed by a federal government ban, and the recent resurrection of psychedelic research. Psychedelics are probably the world’s most controversial class of drugs and in this book, he narrates how they got their reputation.
Pollan is careful to correct the popular conclusion that Timothy Leary was the beginning and end of psychedelics.
