It’s rare to find a textbook that is both extremely informative and enjoyable to read. Psychology of the Future has to be one of the first ones I’ve ever come across. I think that textbooks are often like lecturers. The good ones provide information that you want to learn about. After the lecture or book is complete, you have a few tidbits of knowledge that you can relate to your own life or work.

Ο Stan Grof επιτελεί πραγματικά μια βαθειά διείσδυση στον όρο "θεραπεία", ο οποίος υπερβαίνει τις συνήθεις προσεγγίσεις των δυτικών συστημάτων ψυχιατρικής και ψυχολογίας.

This book is a condensed version of the work of Stan Grof. All of his previous books and research on psychedelic therapy and spiritual exploration are exposed here in basic form. I recommend this as an intro to his work and to anyone who may be interested in the use of psychedelics for healing and self-exploration.

Grof is known for his early studies of LSD and its effects on the psyche—the field of psychedelic psychotherapy.
