A trip worth taking. * Sunday Business Post * In this raw, honest, and ultimately hopeful journey, Waldman takes us deep into the forest of her mind and moods. The success of her story with microdosing reminds the medical and legal communities how much still remains to be understand about the brain. * Dr. David Eagleman, neuroscientist, author of The Brain * Waldman proves a sharp debunker of the myths that have accrued around a potentially life-saving chemical whose star is clearly on the rise * Spectator * Humour informs Ayelet Waldman 's lively diary of taking acid . . . A smart writer with an easy tone. As a suburban mother of four , she nicely plays up how unlike the archetypal acid tripper she is. The neurological and pharmaceutical science is well handled and she makes a strong case for medicinal LSD. But perhaps what the book does best is demystify the chemical mythology of drugs. * The Observer * Relentlessly honest and surprisingly funny * Washington Post * Ayelet Waldman is fearless, which is our good fortune and sometimes hers. That boldness led to her fruitful adventures in mind-altering substances recounted here. Subtly mind-altering; this is a book about sub-hallucinatory microdoses of LSD but also about marriage and family life, insomnia, addiction, her past as a defense attorney, our insane drug laws, moods and dispositions and afflictions, and a lot of other stuff braided into an informative, amusing, nonchalantly incendiary narrative. You could call this book her war on the war on drugs, but it's so much more, and so much more funny. * Rebecca Solnit, author of A Field Guide to Getting Lost * Genuinely brave and human. * New York Times * Wildly brilliant. * Elle * It's a simple, delightful premise: a journal of microdosing. Then Waldman brings so much to the project that it turns into something else, something far more beguiling . . . The result is constantly entertaining, slyly educational, and surprisingly moving . . . I don't know another writer like her." * William Finnegan, author of Pulitzer Prize-winning Barbarian Days *
