"Eisner's book will do much to dispel the misconceptions about
MDMA." -- Dr. Stanley Krippner
Ecstasy (MDMA) is the first of a new generation of mind-changing substances
that is reported to transform personal relationships and boost self-esteem. Its
effects have been described as opening people up to their intuition and
feelings, leading to an expanded sense of self-awareness and empathy for
others. After a decade of use by psychotherapists, MDMA surged into public
awareness and has been used by millions, prompting Newsweek to call it the
"drug of choice... of the New Age movement." Ecstasy: The MDMA
Story chronicles MDMA, including the flip-flops in its legal status,
psychological effects, erotic implications, methods of use, possible future,
health risks, chemical structure and a detailed description of its chemical
synthesis by leading pharmacologist Dr. Alexander T. Shulgin.
This expanded second edition includes updates on the opening of government
sanctioned MDMA research in the USA, the latest information on health risks,
and the "rave" scene in England and the USA.
"A remarkably complete, courageous and well researched work."
-- American Book Review
