Contemporary Culture • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

With an intriguing blend of investigative research and personal exploration, Michael Pollan takes a deep dive into the science of psychedelics in an effort to examine their potential to enhance our inner lives and offer relief from emotional or physical disturbances. Pollan's narration matches his journalistic approach: He's calm and measured, though not immune to the delight of discovery and the peculiarity of his interview subjects. Listeners will find themselves charmed by Pollan's innate curiosity and "post-trip" reflections. Listeners skeptical of Pollan's argument from the outset-- that psychedelics be studied as a resource to explore the boundaries of consciousness for reasons both scientific and spiritual--may want to relent. Pollan's earnest approach invites an open mind and serious consideration. A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
