6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on May 18, 1999
This book is an extensive compilation of ritual drug use throughout history, seemingly compiled more or less at random. The sections on fairy lore and LSD were intensely interesting to me, because of the similarities of experience that were recounted. This book isn't the kind of book you can sit down and read straight through, due to the wildly varying subject matter and sources, it's more of a toilet book. As a reference work, it is quite useful, a sort of companion work to The Golden Bough.
