520    "In recent years American women have been attacked as 
       frigid, castrating, and unfeeling. Beneath the veneer of 
       attractive housewife, loving mother, and successful writer,
       the author of MY SELF AND I at first appears to be very 
       much such a person. But during the 23 psychotherapeutic 
       treatments she describes so dramatically, we witness the 
       complete emotional regeneration of a modern woman. Thanks 
       to Constance A. Newland's unsparing honesty and rare 
       bravery, here is the exciting and literally fantastic 
       account of the unconscious forces which block personal 
       fulfillment. Under psychiatry's new mind-loosening drug 
       lysergic acid diethylamide-25, the powerful psychochemical
       that induces hallucinations, Mrs. Newland penetrates 
       behind the paralyzing fear and the murderous rages that we
       all harbor within us. Her minute-by-minute journal of this
       struggle presents the reader with an unprecedented 
       firsthand account of the still-uncharted regions of the 
       unconscious: "I traveled deep into the buried regions of 
       the mind. I discovered that in addition to being, 
       consciously, a loving mother and a respectable citizen, I 
       was, unconsciously, a murderess, a pervert, a cannibal, a 
       sadist, and a masochist. But in the wake of these dread 
       discoveries I lost my fears ... and I achieved complete 
       sexual fulfillment." Praised by psychiatrists for its 
       value as the first case history by an LSD patient. MY SELF
       AND I is even more important as a human document dealing 
       with life's major themes, love and hate. Other writers 
       have cited fear and anxiety as the principal obstacles to 
       emotional fulfillment, but Mrs. Newland has had the 
       courage to admit that the real destructive force--deeper 
       and more powerful than fear--is suppressed rage and 
       hatred"--Jacket. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA,
