When it was first published, Mavericks of the Mind was more than a breath of fresh air — it was a hurricane of ideas and visions perfectly tuned to the time. This 21st century expansion pack will ensure that these maverick spirits–many of whom have now passed on– will continue to channel the mindscape beyond the bend.

This is a fine collection of original thinkers, an important national resource. Everyone who wants to stay current with information from the outer perimeters of consciousness exploration should read it.
