This is a charming historical snapshot of the late Nicholas Saunders' extended volume of research into MDMA. Highlights include a poignant tale of rekindled love, and an eye opening essay on Euoropean Football (Soccer) hooligans gone mellow on X.
Admittedly, this is not the #1 best book on MDMA available on the market. It is dated, and "Ecstasy, the MDMA Story," by Bruce Eisner is my preferred handbook to MDMA from that era. Still, Saunders' book is fairly well researched, gives a more Eurocentric angle, contrasted with Eisner's USA focus, and promises to be the flashiest, most spectacular looking book on your shelf. The front and back covers, as well as the entire spine are created out of a magnificent color changing glittery, shimmery paper. It is a very shiny paper, so hold the book up to your face, and you will see a striking self image, floating amongst the rainbows.
