I don't know about the accuracy of this book, but it is an interesting read
particularly based on where I am mentally these days.  The book is writtne
from a certain perspective that put various puratanical ideas in
perspective.  I put this book in the category of writers like Aldous Huxley
and others who wrote on altered states of consciousness and our views on
"drug" use.
