Some reviews and comments on the Secret Chief:

Ralph Metzner

Review and Commentary

Albert Hofmann, Ph.D.

"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 interpid Ph.D. psychologist."

Stanislav Grof, M.D.

"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 judgment 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"

Ann Shulgin

"We miss Jacob. That old clich 'It is a privilege to have known him'; is absolutely appropriate, for Sasha and me and for all of his friends."

Tom Lyttle

"Suffice to say, The Secret Chief is the story of a great man whose story has come due. "Jacob's" influence on a great part of psychedelic thinking is unquestionable and seminal. Our laws must eventually loosen up regarding the uses of psychedelics in therapy. It is hoped--like "Jacob" in this book--more and more of the unsung heroes of the psychedelic movement will be showcased. Applause to Myron Stolaroff for bringing this story to light, and for revealing the hidden history of psychedelic therapy and its elders. Applause as well, for donating all the proceeds from this book to psychedelic therapy. I would recommend picking this fine book up. I was definitely inspired and encouraged by it. This tale needed to be told, and the author did it in a fine style. Bravo...!"
