I've read Be Here Now - It's good, but just take some of it with a grain of salt and realize that it's a summary/handbook to be supplemented by further investigation and reading of the actual texts.

I haven't read Storming Heaven, but I've read Acid Dreams, and I've heard that the two are somewhat similar. Acid Dreams is great. I loved it.

i just bought Be Here Now from Border's.

It's very interesting, tho I haven't made it past the horizontal pages.

The brown pages are good to read at night before going to bed. I've read Be Here Now cover to cover many times and I still find wisdom and guidance in it.

A great, great volume, with our without supplemental buddhist texts. Peace.

Be Here Now is amazing. The brown part is made to be read while tripping. I first read it when I was on MDMA, and that definitely opened my eyes. That must have been about 2 years ago now. It was just the right thing at the right time.
