Author: Albert Hofmann
We follow Dr. Hofmann on a tortuous journey of discovery: The systematic research, the incredible accidents, the frightening personal experiment that was, nearly fifthy years ago, the first LSD trip. As the story of Hofmann’s career unfolds, we meet Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary, Gordon Wasson, Ernst Jünger, and other fascinating personalities who come to life in these pages. The reader begins to discover the complexity of the moral dilemma posed by a substance that offers such promise yet carries within it such danger.
LSD my Problem Child not only contributes to our understanding of the use of hallucinogens in Western culture, but also offers us an inside look into the life of one of the world’s great chemists. Dr. Hofmann’s highly candid and personal insights shed new light on a truly important scientific discovery, the significance of which has yet to be fully understood.
