    1. "Don’t do drugs, kids, m’kay? Drugs are bad, m’kay? Don’t do drugs."So the first time I ever did ecstasy was also the best time. Subsequent explorations were close but never quite as good. The environment was about as exciting as you could get my first time, but the primary issue is also that it became harder and harder to get pure MDMA in the States. The chemists were frequently cutting costs by cutting it with speed, Sudafed, aspirin, meth, or other miscellaneous additions.The first ti [...]

    2. Good as a stocking filler for old skool ravers.This is a fine looking little book. It is well laid out with a good choice of illustrative pictures, particularly the catalog of pills. It starts of really well, with the first few chapters looking at the discovery of ecstasy, governmental responses and the physical and psychological effects of its use. These chapters are informative, interesting and a great antidote to the one sided view of ecstasy often presented in mainstream media.After that it [...]

    3. This was pretty bland. Learning about Ecstasy itself and how it affects the mind was pretty cool, but the author focused so god damn much on the music scene and it felt like one big nostalgia trip more than an actual history. The "Serotonin Stories" were cool as shit, though. Like most nostalgia heavy things, this book made me feel a longing of sorts, like I've missed or am missing out on something.

    4. e, the incredibly strange story of ecstasy by Tim Pilcher (Running Press 2008)(306.1) is a thorough summary of the history and culture of the end of the 20th century's most popular psychedelic substance. My rating: 6.5/10, finished 1/22/14.

    5. Great little book. Easy and fun read that gives a great overview of the history of ecstasy. It’s also full of beautiful color pictures that help visualize the history.I read it to help with a college paper/speech that was about ecstasy. I got an A and this book helped.
