LSD… my difficult child. The story of the discovery of the “wonder drug”
The following description is from the publisher.

LSD – for some, it has become synonymous with the chemical path to Nirvana, for others – a satanic drug, and for still others – a tool with unheard-of potential in exploring our consciousness. Aldous Huxley, dying, asked his wife to give him just LSD. It’s easy to say that when it comes to this substance, things have gotten out of hand. However, how did all this happen? What was the birth of the “wonder drug” like?
