Recommends it for: everyone
College students in the late sixties and seventies were practically issued this book along with their student IDs. It is a reference work on psychedelic drugs. A number of authors contributed short articles, including Alan Watts' classic, "Psychedelics and Religious Experience." The bibliography is quite extensive. All in all, this tome is an even-handed overview of the research into psychedelics for its time.

An academic review of the state of the art in the therapeutic uses of hallucinogenic drugs.

Long & clearly designed for classroom study but an interesting read nonetheless.
Would recommend to those willing to take on the reader process on an individual level.
