    1. If you're looking for a mad scientist who turned his back on the scientific establishment to pursue the wonders of inner space and altered states of consciousness, you couldn't do better (at least in the 20th century) than John Lilly. If you're looking for a book that isn't just another series of head-trips but rather a how-to manual, this is a great one. Lilly embodied both the iconoclast and the scientific observer. Perhaps he came closer than any other to the development of a model of study t [...]



    2. Reads like a COBOL program. If you liked "The Teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge", maybe you'll like this.


    3. I had a copy of this book as well as two others by Lilly that I greatly treasured. After moving house more times than I care to count, I confess to having lost those volumes somewhere along the way. A pity because Lilly's work has always been an inspiration to me. He was a controversial and scholarly researcher who was not afraid to undertake research on a particular issue simply because it made his colleagues uneasy. LSD's potentially useful mental health applications and the value of complete [...]


    4. The subject is the exploration of human behaviours in solitude with the effect of LSD25 (a recreational drug ) and interpreting the results from a software/programming point of view.It took me a lot of time to just digest the facts, almost 40 hours! It helped me to understand an organizational view of our brain with software and hardware parts and a methodical instruction for self analysis. I read this book as a preface to J C LILLY's "the centre of the cyclone". Since that book is about his per [...]


    5. This is an important, influential and historic text. A landmark in research on the scientific and therapeutic uses of LSD. That doesn't make it fun to read. I don't doubt it's significance but beyond its opening remarks on the nature of human consciousness I got very little from it. It's just too dense — or I am. I got much more from listening to Robert Anton Wilson wax lyrical about this book than I did from the book itself.


    6. The most honest and comprehensive attempt to date at the empirical examination of the psychedelic experience. This is a technical treatise, and may be somewhat inaccessible to readers without much scientific background.



    7. This book that taught me that the space alien voices in my mind are really products of my subconcious and then showed me how to talk to dolphins. That was *before* I took the LSD. Highly recommended reading.




    8. Interesting so far. Mildly dry, but very clear. Not sure if I fully agree with all his hypotheses, but he certainly makes the point that that's exactly what they are "hypotheses"


    9. Literally mind blowing. The very idea that the brain could be programmed just like a computer was extremely radical when it was published
