The Acid Diaries: A Psychonaut’s Guide to the History and Use of LSD. Christopher Gray. Inner Traditions Bear and Company. ISBN: 978-1594773839

Details his experimentation with LSD over a period of three years and shares the startling realization that his visions were weaving an ongoing story from trip to trip. Gray makes the case that trips follow three stages. The first deals with personal issues and pre-birth consciousness; the second with ego-loss and the third with sacred and spiritual themes.
