"In the illegality of his time it was unthinkable to publish the excellent results of his therapy. It is therefore praiseworthy that today, nine years after his death, a friend has undertaken the task of publishing the details of the therapeutic methodology of this intrepid Ph.D. psychologist."
-- Albert Hofmann, Ph.D., inventor of LSD and author of LSD, My Problem Child

"Jacob painfully weighed the pros and cons and made the decision to challenge the law, continue his work with psychedelics, and assume personal responsibility for his activity. He has already passed the judgement of his "family," the friends and clients whose lives he has profoundly changed. They remember him with great love and gratitude. It remains to be seen how he will be judged by history..."
-- Stanislav Grof, M.D., author of LSD Psychotherapy and The Adventure of Self-Discovery

"We miss Jacob. That old cliche, 'It is a privilege to have known him,' is absolutely appropriate, for Sasha and me and all his friends."
-- Ann Shulgin, co-author of PIHKAL and TIHKAL
