The critically acclaimed novelist and social critic Aldous Huxley, describes his personal experimentation with the drug mescaline and explores the nature of visionary experience. The title of this classic comes from William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell: "If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."

We must be adventurous to grow.
We must be adventurous to grow because it is in the unknown that we find new answers that challenges our preconceived ideas of what is important. This book is as important as ever, infact more so because right now we need innovation which ultimately involves a different perspective. Doors of perception illustrates this point well.
