This is probably one of the most disturbing books you could own, a sort of Reader's Digest from Hades.
There are testimonials of some of the most bizarre auto-erotic deaths, trepanation (a self-surgery technique that you need like a hole in the head), sound as a weapon and the totalitarianism-gone-Dada theories of Slovenian art movement NSK.
I highly recommend this book.
File under outré, along with all of ReSearch publications, anything by Feral House (and author/editor Adam Parfrey), et al.
All of the material presented here is true. Some of it seems unbelievable but all the reports here are covering behaviors that these people were engaging in willingly (even some of the fatal ones) for the purpose of having some sort of heightened sensory experience. Nearly all of this behavior does NOT involve drugs, focusing more on altered experience through altered body state.
Not for the easily squeamish. Despite the extreme subject matter, this volume is highly intelligent and an amazing psychological peek into the fringes of human experiences.
I rate it a four not for any shortcomings of it's own, but because it pales in comparison to the Amok Sourcebook, a much more comprehensive version of the Sensurround edition -- check them both out.
DO NOT LET THE SUBJECT MATTER DETER YOU -- COME WITH AN OPEN MIND AND SEE WHAT'S GOING ON OUT THERE!
