Exploring the culture and science of three mind-changing molecules – caffeine, morphine and mescaline – Michael Pollan is here to completely rethink our relationship with what we call ‘drugs’. Reviving our historic, evolved relationship with these psychoactive agents, and reckoning with the fact that what we grow, drink and eat freely, or illegally, is dependent on habit, culture, evolution and politics, Michael helps us renegotiate the reality, richness and promise of our mind’s relationship with plants.
