Great book. My copy had lots of typos, though that doesn't bother me, it seemed odd.

I never hear anyone talking about Leary's work other than on the internet or in his colleague's writings, which is also odd to me as he was right on the sweet spot. (For me at least)

I recommend this book for anyone wanting a personal account of Leary's antics from the very beginning of his work.

Most importantly it was, at times, a sort of manual for "Evolutionary Agents". :D

I've never had a psychedelic experience, but I do have a fascination with those who have. And that doesn't mean you, Phish fans. I mean people with brains.

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."
