Celebrated author Michael Pollan's most recent book How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence explores how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety. Pollan's book examines various altered states of consciousness, as well as the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists.
