Everyone likes Michael Pollan and I do too, but who the hell is he? Wikipedia says Pollan graduated in the late 1970's, wrote his first book in 1991 and his first best seller a decade latter in 2001 with a piece about Easy Opium for Harper's in the middle. On paper this man has lead a charmed life and on paper, this was a great book  but this twilight memoir about drug use by a rich celebrity ends up rubbing me the wrong way. If it was any other author I am sure the book would have been ignored as just another druggie memoir and nothing more than a  rudimentary, Wikipedia researched history of the top five most popular psychedelics. 

For the type of people that are both interested in psychedelics and reading, they have probably already read up plenty on their drugs of choice. No one in good conscious should be recommending this book (looking at you GoodReads.com ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º). I wish there was more to say about this book but there is not, maybe in place of the rest of this review I should just give you a list of much better books on psychedelics that I can recommend...
