Inhaltsangabe

Brought to you by Penguin.

How to Change Your Mind is a report from what could very well be the future of human consciousness, written and read by Michael Pollan.

When LSD was first discovered in the 1940s, it seemed to researchers, scientists and doctors as if the world might be on the cusp of psychological revolution. It promised to shed light on the deep mysteries of consciousness, as well as offer relief to addicts and the mentally ill. But in the 1960s, with the vicious backlash against the counter-culture, all further research was banned. In recent years, however, work has quietly begun again on the amazing potential of LSD, psilocybin and DMT. Could these drugs in fact improve the lives of many people? Diving deep into this extraordinary world and putting himself forward as a guinea-pig, Michael Pollan has written and read a remarkable history of psychedelics and a compelling portrait of the new generation of scientists fascinated by the implications of these drugs.

Kritikerstimmen

"His approach is steeped in honesty and self-awareness. His cause is just, his thinking is clear, and his writing is compelling." (Washington Post)

"An easy-going humane generosity...mischievous self-regard...as if Henry David Thoreau had had an encounter with Woody Allen and never been quite the same since." (Simon Schama)

this is a book for everybody.

it's written in a language everyone can understand and makes it so easy to follow michael pollan into the world of the mind and psychedelics. he did very well, scratch much of the information there is together into this book. it gives a really good and objective perspective about the possibilities and opportunities lying in psychedelic research and also for one self.
Thanks for that michael!

Michael Pollan's voice is the cherry on top

I loved listening to this book - his voice is so comforting and makes the experience more intimate. It was particularly great to hear about his personal experiences coming from his own mouth. Besides that, the book is super interesting, eye-opening and motivating.

Just a story, no real help. Dissapointed.

I should have changed my mind before buying. Sorry Michael but I expected actual advice not just an O.K. story .

Too repetitive

The topic is really interesting. However few is said on the supposed neural mechanisms of action of psychedelics. The book instead tells thousands of anecdotic experiences lived by people who took psychedelics in various circumstances. it is too repetitive and thus boring.
