Rick Strassman does a great job of introducing psychedelics

2 min readAug 8, 2022

We’ve read over 50 psychedelic books

Most do a poor job of introducing new people to psychedelics

The Psychedelic Handbook by Dr Rick Strassman — out today — may quickly become the book to recommend

3 reasons why 👇

1. Concise & Clear

You can’t not love Michael Pollan’s prose, but HTCYM isn’t a book for the fainthearted

With a reading time of about 3 hours, PH is a lighter — but still very complete — intro to psychedelics

2. Optimistic & Open

As one of the pioneers of the psychedelic renaissance, Strassman knows what he is talking about

He praises the research in the lab and outside of it — and rightfully calls out the risks associated with psychedelics

3. Practical, not Prescriptive

The book’s fourth section describes guidelines/tips on how to use psychedelics

These are sensible, without a specific (spiritual/religious) agenda, and made without talking down to the reader

All in all, possibly the perfect book to gift to those new to psychedelics

The Psychedelic Handbook is out today
