    1 thought on “Pharmako/Dynamis: Stimulating Plants, Potions, & Herbcraft”

    1. Another knockout from Pendell, this time on stimulants. It is a good place to start in understanding the caffeine wars and the sociological aftermaths of cultivating plants for capitalism. Pendell touches on many layers of our relationships with "special plants" and thier chemical derivatives.

    2. These beautiful tomes deal with the wonders, dangers, and possibilities of the most powerful chemists on earth, plants and fungi. Coming at the topic from an approach not unlike The Botany of Desire (maybe plants are far more aware than we give them credit), Mr. Pendell writes elegies to plant teachers that tie in everything from chemistry, astrology, poetry, prose, history, music and mythology. Though dealing with many dangerous "allies" (as Mr. Pedell calls his subjects), these books do not co [...]

    3. The poetry's overblown and kind of amateurish, but this is a good story about the history of drugs (in particular, the sections on tea, cacao, and coffee). Pendell does a good job of fusing chemistry, political history, polemic, and social history into a clear narrative, even though its interrupted by some stuff about the Poison Path.

    4. The history of coffee and cocoa alone makes this book fascinating and well worth purchasing. Pendell is the ultimate scribe of the vegetable kingdom's psychoactive members. Essential for any gardener, visionary or lover of good writing.

    5. Assigned textbook for my "Drugs and the Brain" course at UC Berkeley. One of the most memorable assigned readings ;)

    6. worth it for the history of cacao in aztec culture. definitely written by a white american man who says some weird stuff sometimes, but overall, it's fascinating.
