An amazing description of Huxley's experimentation with hallucinogenics (mescaline, specifically), and his altered perception of the world around him both during and after the experiments themselves. Extremely insightful and paradigm-shattering for the reader; causing the necessary shift of perspective, which may at first be painful and uncomfortable, but ultimately leads to a richer engagement with life in general and in specific.
Among the most profound and influential explorations of mind-expanding psychadelic drugs ever written, here are two complete classic books—The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell—in which Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, reveals the mind's remote frontiers and the unmapped areas of human consciousness. This new edition also features an additional essay, "Drugs That Shape Men's Minds," which is now included for the first time."A genuine spiritual quest. ... Extraordinary." — New York Times
