The Book

This book will change the way you think, sleep, and dream for good. It is a book of psychology and neuroscience, and also of adventure wherein the author explores the extremes to which consciousness can be stretched, from the lucid dream to the quasi-mystical substratum of awareness known as the Pure Conscious Event. Replete with stylish graphics and brightened by comic panels conceived and drawn by the author, The Head Trip is an instant classic, a brilliant and original description of the shifting experience of consciousness that's also a practical guide to enhancing creativity and mental health. This book does not just inform and entertain —it shows how every one of us can expand upon the ways we experience being alive.

Reviews

"Ultimately, it's Warren's engaging first-hand experience that brings all this to life". " You'll never look at waking, sleeping or dreaming the same way again."

- Independent on Sunday

"Full of sentences that make you stop and consider daily experiences from a different angle. It struck a powerful chord with me."

- The Guardian

"Head Trip almost reads like an Oliver Sacks essay turned inside out; instead of rare neurological cases, we get the standard-issue noggin, which turns out to be every bit as exotic."

- San Francisco Chronicle

"It never occurred to me that you could write a travelogue about your own mind.…Head Trip [is] an entirely original and completely fascinating tour through the myriad states of human consciousness....A rich blend of research, theory, and personal encounter."

- Toronto Star
