About the Author
Ernesto Londoño is a national correspondent at The New York Times, where he has worked since 2014. He was born and raised in Colombia and has spent two decades covering some of the most important stories of his generation. He covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; the Arab Spring; served on the editorial board of The New York Times; and was the newspaper's bureau chief in Brazil.

"A moving, tender and thoughtful exploration of a complicated subject. If you want to understand psychedelics better, this is a great place to start."
--Johann Hari, New York Times bestselling author of Stolen Focus and Lost Connections

"A compulsively readable romp through a burgeoning scene that has immense potential for both harm and healing."
--Dan Harris, New York Times bestselling author of 10% Happier and host of the Ten Percent Happier podcast

"In Ernesto Londoño's courageous and revelatory book, a whole new continent sails into view: of the hidden corners of our minds, and of the mysterious substances that light them up. This journey inside the brain and around the world taught me more than any book I've read in a long time. It's an important book, one that will save people's lives."
--Benjamin Moser, Pulitzer Prize winning author of Sontag: Her Life and Work

"Trippy is a meticulously researched investigation into the brave new world of psychedelics. But it's so much more than that. It's the story of how -- in learning about the passages other travelers found for relieving their pain -- Ernesto Londoño found joy, love and illumination."
--Jennifer Finney Boylan, author of She's Not There and co-author of Mad Honey

"New York Times correspondent Londoño debuts with an arresting survey of the "medicinal psychedelic field" and where it's headed...a scrupulous study of a fascinating development in mental health care."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Blending solid research and personal experience, the author points to a new frontier for trauma treatment."

"An engaging memoir...Trippy is a fascinating account of the world of medicinal psychedelics."
--LA Times

"Trippy: The Perils and Promise of Medicinal Psychedelics is Ernesto Londoño's mix of candid personal reflection and deep reporting, illuminating a growing trend in mental health that many of us don't understand."
--NYT Columnist Frank Bruni's Opinion Newsletter

"Londoño has drunk the brew, but, thankfully, not the Kool-Aid...Seeing the perils and the promise of psychedelic experience play out in Londono's own mind, as he comes to terms over years with his own (quite considerable) personal traumas, is a privilege."
--The Telegraph

"This title about utilizing medicinal psychedelics in the treatment plans of some conditions could easily have future public policy implications worldwide. The subject matter will be of interest to many readers."
--Library Journal
