Whatever experiences you've had in your life, whether good, bad, tragic or mondane have become a part of your life story and the thoughts you carry will either weigh you down, spinning you in restless circles or keep you coasting down the river of promise. The directions you choose are your own and no one else can sway you if you can become one with your "God" and forgive yourself.
This book also reminds us about the robotic lives we all live and you DONT need drugs to have a mind-altering exper...more
Part historical account of Leary's psychedelic experiments, part philosophical rambling, and a short outline for the optimal acid trip, this "book" is a quick, interesting read. It is rather disjointed and I wonder if it was put together after his death. Dosing on a regular basis is not something you have to endorse to appreciate what Leary has surmised about god and religion. I took away this: thinking people must rectify their scientific knowledge with their spiritual knowledge. Leary's answer...more
Learn how to reprogram your brain and live a happy fulfilled life with the "LSD Guru". I was surprised at the depth of psychological and spiritual knowledge. Timothy Leary was full of ideas that can benefit anyone who would hear him. LSD was only a small part of his trip. A very short read infused with humor and wisdom.
looks to be a good manual when comparing it to other similiar things i have read. its all about set and setting which i believe t be most important in this kind of endeavor.
Pretty good, shorter than I would've expected. A lot of this was information that I already knew, but it was cool to have a concise version straight from Leary himself.
Don't bother with this book if your looking for a great Leary book try "high priest" that books fantastic. This felt extremely rushed and uninspired.
some very interesting ideas, and even one good legal defense of hallucinogenics
interesting, but shallow perspective from mr acid-head leary
He's got the right idea but sloppy writing.
I loved it.

Timothy Francis Leary was an American writer, psychologist, futurist, modern pioneer and advocate of psychedelic drug research and use, and one of the first people whose remains have been sent into space. An icon of 1960s counterculture, Leary is most famous as a proponent of the therapeutic and spiritual benefits of LSD. He coined and popularized the catch phrase "Turn on, tune in, drop out."
