   A must-read!
This book is incredible. This book was so fascinating that I couldn't put it down. It gives an incredible account of the research he did, along with his personal journey through it and all of the hardship he faced. His research was monumental because it had never been done before in the way he did it, and it will likely never be repeated. I gained a lot of knowledge about the infiniteness of possibility that DMT presents. This book blew my mind because of the scientific and spiritual reasoning of the author. It's a must- read for anyone who advocates for the use of drugs as spiritualpsychological tools.

   A project that did little to enlighten the humankind.
I feel like I didn't spend enough time reading this book. I was expecting a ground breaking revelation from this study, but the book seemed to be a narrative of participants tripping on psychedelics in a clinical setting that didn't result in any medical or psychiatric advancement or achievement.

   We are all so blind to our foolish pride and childish arrogance
There were many vague descriptions of the dmt experience. This book shows why. The information the volunteers gathered upon their return was relayed by Dr. Straussman. He allows the reader to make their own conclusion as to what happens when injesting. At the end of the study, there is an opinion. I agree with him but I will deny that if confronted by closed minded people who respond with anger rather than wonder and awe. The more I learn, the easier it is to be humble and accept that I don't know very much.

   Good book, but bloated with unnecessary content
There is a lot of interesting information in the book. DMT occurs naturally in most organisms on this planet, and is pumped across the blood- brain barrier, which only occurs with molecule that the brain needs. It is almost like the brain craves DMT. The chapter detailing the accounts of the test subjects' trips is the most important part of the book. The book has a lot of superfluous content. The chapter showing how much red tape one has to go through to get this stuff could easily have been omitted. The book contains a lot of baseless speculation on the part of the author, and the last couple chapters were nearly impossible to finish. It is possible to skip several chapters without missing out on important information.

   TOO MUCH IMPORTANCE ON THE PINEAL GLAND
He included so much background. It was done to make sure the research was legit. I understand. I searched for what would happen if someone were born without a pineal gland. The loss of melatonin can be caused by the removal of that gland. When that person dies, what happens? How does the life force leave the body? Will he talk about that? And what is life force? Something to go somewhere would have to be something. It was too vague.

   Interesting research and read
If I read it again, I would give it a five star rating but I wouldn't. This book is for scientists interested in controversial research. I think it's a good assignment for students to learn about the research. Give the students a list of difficulties encountered by human subject review committees. The experimental designs have flaws. Tell me three ways you would improve on the design. In scientific journals, the author's Conclusions can be read in a single chapter. The book details the experimental design. Nerds might be interested in the book because they want to try DMT and have a lot of knowledge about it.

   Incredible journey!
The book did an excellent job of giving important information in relation to psychedelics and their real potential as an addition to the human experience beyond the physical realm. There is a fascinating bit about how the DMT molecule may play a role in the function of the pineal gland and how it may be an interface between the physical body and spiritual experience. It is exciting to think that one day, when others have failed, the role that psychedelics could play will become a standard treatment option. Well done Dr. Strassman!
