My latest book: 'The Antipodes of the Mind'

Posted by Quintal on November 30, 2006, at 14:26:33

I've just started reading Benny Shanon's 'The Antipodes of the Mind - Charting the Phenomenology of the Ayahuasca Experience'. After having a quick flick through I'm pleased to say I think I've finally found a refreshingly meaty and substantial work to counter the usual drivel written about the Ayahuasca experience and hallucinogens in general.

It seems extraordinarily detailed - for example I've just found a table in the back of the book listing the frequency with which certain visions (snakes, jaguars, landscapes, jewelled cities etc) occur. Looking at the book reviews over on Amazon it seems my first impressions are correct - other readers have said the same thing. There are no negative comments, only five star ratings by every reviewer. Looks set to slowly become a classic in Ayahuasca literature.

Benny Shannon is Professor of Psychology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Can anyone tell me how to link an Amazon webpage using the book's title?
