This is the story--by turns revealing, courageous, fascinating and funny--of her quietly psychedelic spring, her quest to understand one of our most feared drugs, and her search for a really good day"-- Provided by publisher.

For years, I have been fascinated by Ayelet Waldman, at first because she was married to Michael Chabon, but later because she expressed herself in a brash, unapologetic way. Her Twitter rants were outrageous and amusing. In this book, she continues in the same vein: training her hyper intellect on a specific project while sharing more personal details than my close friends. I was swayed by her position on decriminalizing drugs, fascinated by the therapeutic uses of MDMA to treat PTSD, harm reduction in drug policy and in speaking with teens about mind-altering substances. I do hope there is continued research in this vein, and I applaud Waldman for taking this personal and professional risk by sharing her experiences.

Waldman decides to try a controversial method to help with her mood disorder and this is the journal she kept during that month. She takes a microdose of LSD every three days over a period of 30 days. Interesting book and informative about quite a few types of drugs that have been used to help people with different problems.
