Here are a few quotes from reviews on Amazon, one of them by renowned author and ayahuasca expert Peter Gorman: 




“With a 'do not disturb' sign on my forehead I couldn't put it down until the last word was read… I thank the writer for writing it, for it has made me a wiser and better person.”

– Margot 




“This is a wonderful story, wonderfully told. Reading it was my pleasure all the way. Go get this. You'll enjoy it. Promise.”

– Peter Gorman, author of “Ayahuasca in my Blood”




“The story propels you forward through the book and before long you have reached the end and learn the real reason why Jerry's life turned upside down. Ayahuasca lead him to the answers deep in the jungle.”

 - Anonymous
