Product Description

Review

A controversial, mind-expanding book that confirms Huxley's position. . .as the father of the modern drug movement. -- Publisher's Weekly

A pharmacological goldmine, supplementing Huxley's classic, The Doors of Perception. -- Publisher's Weekly

A remarkably stimulating, worthwhile volume. -- Publisher's Weekly

Huxley had spent years preparing himself for the fearful psychedelic voyage, and he made it without question when it presented itself. . . . He did it, and then the world will never forget it. -- Timothy Leary, author of Politics of Ecstasy and Outside Looking In

Huxley was one of the first in the modern West to realize the potential value and spiritual implications of drugs. We are fortunate to have this experiential record of drug experiences. -- Rhea A. White, Exceptional Human Experience Network

The extraordinary richness with which Aldous Huxley describes the depth of his research on LSD and mescaline distinguishes him from thousands of researchers who have experimented with drugs over the years. -- San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

The main writings of Aldous Huxley about psychedelics and the visionary experience have now been gathered into a single volume [which] should stand as an unparalleled guide to investigators. -- Island Views

Then I read The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell, and it just rolled from there. That is what really put me over. -- Terence McKenna

This book collects all of [Huxley's] words on the subject and is a valuable addition to the psychedelic literature. -- Andrew Weil, author of High Times

30 of 31 people found the following review helpful By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 10 Sep 2003
Format: Paperback
This volume brings together selections from Huxley’s Brave New World, Doors Of Perception, Heaven And Hell and Island, as well as magazine articles, letters, lectures and scientific papers. It also includes writings by Timothy Leary, Laura Huxley and Dr. Humphry Osmond. Leary’s interesting account of a 1960 meeting with Huxley at Cambridge is titled Mushrooms For Lunch, whilst the same year’s Harvard Sessions is a report of a psylocybin session where Huxley took part in a group experiment. Other very thought provoking chapters include Dr. Humphry Osmond’s May Morning In Hollywood and Huxley’s own Disregarded In The Darkness, Doors, Mescalin, Heaven And Hell and Brave New World Revisited. But the highlights of the book are Laura Huxley’s 1962 account of her husband in a psychedelic state and especially her moving account of his illness and death, titled Nobly Born. The appendix is titled Instruments For Use During A Psychedelic Experience and the book concludes with an index. This is a brilliant collection of this refined author’s best work and an insightful investigation into the use of entheogenic substances for the expansion of consciousness. I also recommend Huston Smith’s Cleansing The Doors Of Perception: The Religious Significance of Entheogentic Plants and Chemicals, William James’ Varieties Of Religious Experience the title Chaos, Creativity and Cosmic Consciousness by Ralph Abraham, Terence McKenna and Rupert Sheldrake.
