Half an hour after swallowing the drug I became aware of a slow dance of golden lights . . .

Among the most profound explorations of the effects of mind-expanding drugs ever written, here are two complete classic books--The Doors of Perception and Heaven and Hell--in which Aldous Huxley, author of the bestselling Brave New World, reveals the mind's remote frontiers and the unmapped areas of human consciousness. This new edition also features an additional essay, "Drugs That Shape Men's Minds," which is now included for the first time.

Our customer reviews

Amazing and accurate pro-trail of a hallucinogenic drug 'trip'. Wonderfully written and very short. It is a weekend read if you are an average reader for pleasure or you can read it in one sitting if you are more of an intense lover of books. Highly more
