Reviews

"In keeping with the ecstatic experience itself, this is a wild, wondrous, wide-eyed journey, and Evans has convinced me at least that it's a trip worth taking."----Psychologist
"A captivating exploration of humanity's journey toward self-transcendence."--Prospect
"Fascinating stuff . . . Evans is a natural storyteller and his honesty about his own experience is refreshing and disarming . . . A smart book that delivers on entertainment as well. Evans takes his subject matter seriously but delivers his investigations in an endlessly amusing and eye-opening manner."--Big Issue
"Compelling . . . His sensitivity as a thinker, like his skill as a storyteller, is never in doubt."--Guardian
"An original and outstanding investigation into a poorly understood but central experience in all our lives. Jules Evans is brave, honest and wise - a great companion and guide on a fascinating journey."--Caspar Henderson
