Excerpt(s): Thanks to Constance A. Newland's unsparing honesty and rare bravery, here is the exciting and literally fantastic account of the unconscious forces which block personal fulfillment. Under psychiatry's new mind-loosening drug lysergic acid diethylamide-25, the powerful psychochemical that induces hallucinations, Mrs. Newland penetrates behind the paralyzing fear and murderous rages that we all harbor within us. ... Praised by psychiatrists for its value as the first case history by an LSD patient, My Self and I is even more important as a human document dealing with life's major themes, love and hate.
