Ask HN: Books you read in 2018?

dawhizkid: A good introduction into the history of psychedelics, the war on drugs, and the re-emergence of research into the potential medical benefits of psychedelics like LSD, psilocybin, and DMT.

Ask HN: Favorite nonfiction books of 2018?

crazygringo: Not just about an utterly fascinating topic (psychadelic drugs), in terms of history (LSD turning from a scientific wonder drug to illegal), his personal experiences, and the neuroscience behind it, but also just extremely well-written -- a real page-turner. A crazy potent combination of science, spirituality (from a skeptic), and narrative. I expect his book will be a significant part of why psychadelic drugs will be legalized in the near future specifically for therapeutic purposes.

2mur: Lovely dive into psychedelics
