There are plenty of social commentary books out there about the 1960s, and even more biographies and autobiographies about the stars of the decade, but “I Think Therefore Who Am I” by Peter Weissman offers a more personal take on the psychedelic era.
The book is Weissman’s memoir of 1967, which was year he (like many others) discovered LSD. The author's starkly honest memories do not portray the time as a golden age, but at the same time he doesn't renounce it or downplay its personal significance. I always like a coming-of-age story, which this essentially is, but this has the added bonus of being set in a particularly interesting time.
“I Think Therefore Who Am I?” is available to buy from Amazon, priced just under £14.
