Feted and derided, Dass (born Richard Alpert), one-time friend and associate of Timothy Leary, with whom he was turned out of Harvard for their experiments in the use of LSD, added a phrase to the language with the title of his first major book, Be Here Now. This book continues Dass's story where it left off in Still Here, which includes an account of his life-threatening stroke, and is as much memoir as spiritual counsel.
VERDICT Essential for Dass fans, this book is also of interest to students of contemporary Hinduism.
