How to Change Your Mind

Michael Pollan

Overview

We all know somebody battling mental illness, addiction, or cancer. Sadly, these are all part of life's experience and we can't escape them. Or can we? If you knew there was a new miracle drug that proves to fight depression, cure addiction, and make end-of-life transitions peaceful and painless, would you consider it? What if the treatment was in the form of psychedelic drugs?

In his No.1 New York Times bestselling book, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, Michael Pollan investigates this revolutionary treatment. Pollan personally experiments with these mind-expanding drugs, once considered dangerous, toxic, and a sure road to danger.

"Normal waking consciousness feels perfectly transparent, and yet it is less a window on reality than the product of our imaginations – a kind of controlled hallucination."

Michael Pollan
