Following a kaleidoscopic thread of psychedelics, shamanism, psychotherapy, Santa Cruz hippies, cultural revolution, and German New Age-ers, Pollan crafts the narrative on psychedelics in the contemporary moment. Extensively researched, and at points laugh-out-loud funny, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence is already in line for nonfiction book of the year. Quarter tab of acid not included with purchase. - Gabe
