When it was first published, Mavericks of the Mind was more than a breath of fresh air -- it was a hurricane of ideas and visions perfectly tuned to the time. This 21st century expansion pack will ensure that these maverick spirits--many of whom have now passed on-- will continue to channel the mindscape beyond the bend. --Erik Davis --MAPS Bulletin
This is a fine collection of original thinkers, an important national resource. Everyone who wants to stay current with information from the outer perimeters of consciousness exploration should read it. --Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead --Magical Blend Magazine
Depending on how one chooses to view it, this aptly named book is either a potpourri of strange and wonderful ideas or a collection of far-fetched suppositions. ...there will certainly be readers interested in this volume s unique subject matter. --Library Journal
