As people live fast-paced lives surrounded by technology and social media, the rise of mental illness has become an increasingly prevalent problem.

Unfortunately, medical attention doesn’t always work and patients like Ayelet Waldman turn to drastic measures to help feel like themselves again. A Really Good Day is the true story of Waldman’s struggle with mood storms which led her to a drastic, yet forbidden remedy: microdoses of LSD.

Ultimately, Waldman documented her experience in her search for a really good day. As you read, you’ll learn what microdosing is, how LSD has helped popular billionaires like Steve Jobs, and how the greatest risk of microdosing LSD is simply getting arrested.
