It's almost like this book was written to debunk the spiritual ecstasies of the ’60s, almost as if the author had an axe to grind, but it's also a great (though super opinionated) overview of the things that lead to the psychedelic decade, which put into sober perspective my own early spiritual seekings and discoveries like Tolkien, Steiner, Castaneda, drugs, Huxley, meditation, Hesse, Theosophy, Watts, McKenna, Leary, psychedelics, the occult, Lovecraft, Crowley, and so on.
