This is an awesome work full of better-than-normal-interviews with some of the most fascinating thinkers of our time. It gives a strong taste of these authors frequent tendancy to spin your head around and flip your universe inside out in ways that will change your life. If your beginning to tip-toe into the odd world of these people then I really suggest this book. If your completely oblivious to who they even are: then give it a read asap! Actually, I suspect it would be an enjoyable read for almost anyone. Thank you MAPS for making an ebook avaliable!

This remarkable book of interviews was originally written on the fulcrum between what could be called the psychedelic age and the current cyber-information age. At that time we desperately needed a fascinating and concise book that let the luminaries of that psychedelic age speak for themselves, rather than to hear the noise of critics and reactionaries who more often than not interpreted their words through a filter of mud colored lenses. Mavericks of the Mind is more crucial than ever. The wisdom contained in these excellent interviews not only described our history in luscious detail, but left us with a road map crucially needed for understanding our current exciting and treacherous path. David Jay Brown & Rebecca McClen Novick's gift to the interviewer's craft is an uncanny ability to ask the big questions - questions that lead us through the fine details of the many subjects discussed, and onto the often abstract larger picture of our constantly changing reality. Rather than getting a handle on these issues, and like the critics, figuring out ways to pigeon-hole the facts, and thus diminish their relevance, Mavericks of the Mind serves more as an instruction manual for teaching us how to navigate and surf with intelligence, compassion and joy!

This wonderful book brings back fond memories and voices of the past as well as those of others, fortunately still with us. The discussions are lively, and we recognize each of the speakers as they flog their favorite horse: John C. Lilly wants us to take Ketalar and dive into the next best samadhi tank, Robert Anton Wilson rallies for more historical consciousness as well a Discordian view of the world; Timothy Leary sticks with the kids and the future; Nina Gabroi speaks out for more consciousness and for common sense and human kindness, Laura Archera Huxley is the debonair advocate of humanity at large, while those still with us enliven the discussion with their unconventionality. Ralph Abraham wishes he wouldn't have to school anymore but still enlists; Stephen LaBerge explains God without words; Nick Herbert knows he doesn't know about consciousness; Carolyn Mary Kleefeld wants to distill nature's energies and so on.
The topics of this emblematic collection of thoughts range from psychedelics to religion to politics to quantum physics as well as all of the above. Delightful and orginal.

This is a rare book with interviews from wonderful intellects and philosophers of our time. It's the Who's Who of psychedelics and wonderful insights from each person. Many of these "mavericks" are no longer with us so don't miss this chance to read some of what they shared with the author during these private interviews.

This is a fantastic collection of interviews. If you're like me, you'll read the whole book to hear from the people you already Love and a bunch you may not have heard of but are right up there as top consciousness pioneers.

I tore through this book the first time around, but enjoy leaving it out on the coffee table. I pick it up occasionally to re-read different interviews, but also because anyone who picks it up seems guaranteed to find a name that makes them pause and read more. Highly recommended! Enjoy!

Thank you David Brown for the re-birth of this wonderful book. You did us all a great service by bringing this back into the book market place. It was a very unique era and we mustn't forget these mavericks most of who are no longer with us, powerful indeed.

Revolutionary thoughts for all of us who are exploring wider states of consciousness in order to integrate them to everyday life. You don't need drugs or plants, but you certainly need the fullness of your awareness.

A good compilation of interesting interviews. Some were just a little too technical for me. Otherwise, a very entertaining read.

Actually, this is an amazing book, and, depending who is being interviewed, funny. However, like most Kindle anthologies, it is not bookmarked. This means that if you want to read any of the interviews out of order, you have to literally go page by page, a very daunting and timely task. I have had the same experience with some Kindle editions of short story anthologies. Some are book marked, but it isn't noted as a feature when you buy it, so take your chances. If you want to read this book, buy the real deal.

you claim that the authors of this book include:
Mavericks of the Mind: Conversations with Terence McKenna, Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, John Lilly, Carolyn Mary Kleefeld, Laura Huxley, Robert Anton Wislon, and Others etc..

May I remind you that Robert Anton Wislon should be spelled Robert Anton Wilson.
What's up with you people???
