"A brilliant and brave investigation by Michael Pollan, author of five New York Times best sellers, into the medical and scientific revolution taking place around psychedelic drugs--and the spellbinding story of his own life-changing psychedelic experiences When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write what is undoubtedly his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third. Thus began a singular adventure into the experience of various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research. A unique and elegant blend of science, memoir, travel writing, history, and medicine, How to Change Your Mind is a triumph of participatory journalism. By turns dazzling and edifying, it is the gripping account of a journey to an exciting and unexpected new frontier in our understanding of the mind, the self, and our place in the world. The true subject of Pollan's "mental travelogue" is not just psychedelic drugs but also the eternal puzzle of human consciousness and how, in a world that offers us both struggle and beauty, we can do our best to be fully present and find meaning in our lives"--… (mais)

Quite frankly, I found this kind of boring. I read Ayelet Waldman's [b: A Really Good Day|30212082|A Really Good Day How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life|Ayelet Waldman|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1471284232s/30212082.jpg|50666248] last year, and so had a bit of this information already. But also, I liked Waldman's personal experience about microdosing, specifically, since I'm intrigued by alternative treatments to mental health; there are chapters here about how psychedelics can treat depression and enhance one's coping capabilities when dealing with death, but they felt flat compared to Waldman's discussion. Furthermore, a bit too much time was spent on Pollan describing his trips, and well, a bunch of people have already written about their trips extensively...and unless you're in it, it's kind of boring. Ah well, onward and upward. ( )

Extremely well-researched book that certainly changed my mind about the safety and efficacy of psychedelics. I also learned that are parts of the brain that control traffic between the different parts and which could be the seat of the ego.

I bought a copy for my dad and I'm going to pick one up myself for reference. ( )

This book changed my mind about something that then changed my life (and my mind). A must read if you're considering psychedelic assisted psychotherapy!! I would equally recommend for those considering such treatment for terminal illness but can't speak from personal experience on that front. ( )

After watching a “60 minutes” segment on psychedelics research a couple years earlier, I became mildly intrigued by the topic. This led me to Pollen’s book. Sadly, it might have taken a couple magic mushrooms for me to wade through the tome without becoming a bit restless. I realized a third of the way through that a 15-minute broadcast report on the topic is one thing, and a 480-page narrative is a different fungus. There’s no disputing that the author meticulously traces the history of this phenomenon. But as I hit the one-third mark, the material felt a bit repetitive in numerous spots. I don’t fault the author. Anyone who is looking for a deep-dive into this field will likely be sated. For me, it was a bit much. On the positive side, the final third of the book is the most powerful and fascinating section. Pollen provides a series of vivid anecdotes demonstrating how psychedelics can change behaviors can change and shift outlooks on even the most weighty subjects such as death. Pollen cites experts who are convinced that psychedelics have the potential to “dope – slap“ people into changing destructive or unproductive habits, whether they be addictions or fear of death. The experts hypothesize that these drugs are a “Biological reboot“ of the system – our natural version of control-alt-delete. Psychedelics afford us “mental flexibility“ in which we can let go of the mental models we employ to define our individual realities. ( )

PROLOGUE: A New Door
MIDWAY THROUGH the twentieth century, two unusual new molecules, organic compounds with a striking family resemblance, exploded upon the West. In time, they would change the course of social, political, and cultural history, as well as the personal histories of the millions of people who would eventually introduce them to their brains.
