How to Change Your Mind

Book by Michael Pollan

I'm currently really enjoying this audiobook on the subject of psychedelic drugs and their power to change people's thinking for the better.

Author and journalist, Pollan takes a look at the history of psychedelics and builds a compelling picture of how they could have the power to change the world and human consciousness forever.


There's already a lot of research into their benefits for people who suffer depression and other mental health troubles.

Psilocybin in particular is supposed to be great for those who enter middle age. It reportedly offers an effective way to counter the fixed thinking that becomes more common with age. Fancy a trip anyone? ;)

This book was recommended to me by my good buddy Marc (thanks Marc!).


How to Change Your Mind appeared in Issue 12 in the Read section.
