Exploring the Magic Mushroom Experience

by Eugenia Bone

Flatiron Books – Macmillan Publishing
320 Pages – ISBN 978-1-250-88565-4

Have a Good Trip describes all the ways we use Psilocybe mushrooms today, from collection to preparation, from harms to trip types, and the self-organized groups whose experiments are leading the science. It covers mycology and
neuroscience, but in great part this book synthesizes the vast trove of anecdotal experiences that constitutes most of what we know about the “magic” in these mushrooms. Have a Good Trip is not a guide, but it does address all the questions the mushroom curious might have.
