Review
"Fascinating and provocative. A remarkable exploration of the boundaries of science and consciousness itself."
"Rick Strassman's pioneering research work with DMT, a natural psychedelic drug used by Amazonian Indians, raises fascinating questions about the neurochemical basis of experience and the feasibility of conducting human research with mind-altering drugs in a university medical center. Truly adventurous reading!"

"DMT: The Spirit Molecule is a tantalizing peek into a new model of how the brain and mind work."

"This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in the mind, philosophy, the nature of reality, and spirituality."

"DMT: The Spirit Molecule points the way beyond the present impasse of the reigning 'drug abuse' paradigm."

"The most extensive scientific study of the mental and perceptual effects of a psychedelic drug since the 1960s."

"Strassman's important research contributes to a growing awareness that we inhabit a multi-dimensional universe."

"Strassman raises vital questions about the origin of spiritual experiences and the nature of consciousness."
