Do not support this woman. Krystle Cole abused and tortured a man named Brandon Green who suffered a collapsed lung, damage to his left side, sexual dysfunction and severe memory loss. She did NOT go to prison because she ratted out criminal associates, and she is now living comfortably with no consequence. Please spread the word of this woman's horrible doings.

Pre-Sentence Investigation Report of Krystal Cole is filed in Tulsa District Court. Within the report, kidnapping and torture victim Brandon Green states (Report, p. 4) that after kidnapping by Skinner and Krystal Cole, he was:

injected with unknown chemicals and drugs in his penis, testicles, back, arms and legs.
hit in the groin repeatedly.
kicked in the groin until he blacked out.
forced to drink an unknown substance and was also forced to swallow some form of "parasitic eggs."
not given any food and very little fluids during his captivity.
bound with duct tape by the hands and feet and beaten repeatedly.
duct-taped across the mouth to prevent his calls for help.
tied around the testicles and/or penis with a telephone cord and suspended from a bed.
pulled with the telephone cord around his penis until cartilage "popped."
subjected to a deep cut into his penis with a knife or razor blade.
subjected to bleach being poured over his groin area.
"brutally shaved" by Krystle Cole of his scalp, eyebrows, genitalia and his entire body.
subjected to severe trauma to the rectum with an unknown instrument.

I was very excited to read this book, especially after all the events that occurred during this time. However, it is poorly written, offering no real insights into psychedelic experiences beyond "maaan, i was really high", nor into the actual historical events that the author participated in. I assume this was because she was a witness in the trial, but since she was also charged with crimes, I was hoping to hear her side of the story. Overall, I was just disappointed. All of the info in the book is pretty much available through her videos on neurosoup.

The same "woman" that tortured and mutilated another human being and didn't do any time because she informed on her partners.

Poorly written, amateurish, and incomprehensible! Stick with Strassman, Grof, McKenna, Shulgin, Oroc, and the rest. About as enjoyable and informative to read as a (C-) middle school essay. The author's website and youtube postings are no better (stick with Erowid). A total disappointment. The events "described" should be very interesting, but the author leaves you wondering WTF happened and why. The "kidnapping" is totally baffling; I had to do a google search to find out what really happened. A very childish failed attempt to be in the same league as the authors mentioned above. If Leonard Pickard wrote a book, it would be worth reading, but this is worthless. A total embarrasment. (I find it very disturbing and unethical when an author "reviews" their own book, giving it a 5 star rating!)

Meh.
I really approached this book with an open mid and maybe even wanted to like it, but yeah, pretty much what everyone else said. Nothing here at all.

The ONE reason I bought this was to learn more about the fascinating people behind the Missle Silo clandestine chem lab in Kansas. She had already covered that topic in the first 5 pages of the book. The rest of the book is a stream of consciousness wandering tale of exactly how high you can possibly get on how many exotic chemicals, blah blah. If you want this type of thing go red PIHKAL instead.

what reddit has to say...
Her book, Lysergic, while inherently interesting with respect to subject matter (sort of an insider account of the pickard/skinner thing), is the worst written thing I've ever seen published. It reads like a fifth grade book report, complete with extraneous exclamation marks!!
