User Review  - Tom Lowe - Goodreads

A real eye-opener. I sometimes judge a book on how much it teaches and informs, and this is one of the best. Because of this book, I'm now much more tuned-in about the drug culture and the convoluted ... Read full review

This is basically a scholarly version of "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test," one of my favorite books. The fact that "Acid Dreams" is written in scholarly, laconic style makes it an even better read ... Read full review

User Review  - Rebecca McNutt - Goodreads

This book was really nostalgic and interesting to read, and a worthwhile piece of history in the hippie counterculture of the late 1960's. Acid Dreams is well-written, detailed, illustrated and even includes hippie trivia (I'm not a hippie but it was interesting to read). Read full review

User Review  - Lori Zavada - Goodreads

What an eye-opener! I will read this again - probably soon since it's been a few years. Read it. You'll learn a lot about several aspects of history to include: psychological testing, the hippie movement, science, our government, etc. etc. A "girded." ;-) Read full review
