A Really Good Day presents an intimate exploration of Ayelet Waldman's personal journey with microdosing LSD. It chronicles her experiences, unfolding the intricacies of the mind and the profound effect small doses of this psychedelic substance have on her daily life. With candor and wit, Waldman navigates through the complexities of mental health, the stigmas surrounding drug use, and the legalities that frame the conversation. The book is not only a diary of self-discovery but also an informed discussion about the potential therapeutic uses of psychedelics, offering insights that challenge conventional wisdom.




In A Really Good Day, Ayelet Waldman provides bridges the gap between personal memoir and investigative journalism. Her exploration into microdosing LSD is a courageous testament to the search for balance in mental health, and a call to reconsider the potential of psychedelics in therapeutic settings.

Waldman’s narrative is a powerful reminder of the human behind every patient, the story behind every statistic, and the potential for change in every drop of LSD. Her day-to-day account becomes a beacon for wider conversations on drug policy, societal judgment, and the endless quest for a better quality of life.

To provide the remaining details, such as direct quotes, I would need to overcome the technical difficulties related to text extraction. If you would like to proceed with that, please let me know how you'd like to move forward.​
