Warning: if you are easily offended, stop being a pussy and read my book... I dare you!
'The Truth Of Being... And other shit' started out life as my research notes which grew into what we see now and is a factual account of my experience on and off psychedelic drugs and unwanted opinions and truths. You may laugh, you may cry... You may think me a prick. Oh well. Enjoy at your own peril :) More

About Jim Smith

I don't really see myself as an author or anything else for that matter, I'm just a guy who got high (I mean really high) on LSD and decided to take trip notes.
How the hell I produced this book is a true mystery given the amount of psychedelic drugs consumed in the duration of its creation.
Easiest way to describe myself is basically by saying "read my book, you'll get it".

Oh and yes, that IS a huge joint in the picture.

My promise to paying readers:
All proceeds will go towards buying and "researching" psychedelic substances to aid inspiration and motivation for my next literary weaving.

Not since 'Drugstore Cowboy' has the suburban alchemist had a road map to the thrills, spills and misadventure of our everyday lives.
Jim Smith takes us on a 'warts and all' journey through his personal quest to gain and share enlightenment.
From breaking out the chemistry set to produce his homemade psychotropic's, to finding love, to exposing big pharma Mr. Smith uncovers the dangers, the cruelty and the unparalleled bias of our society in his unapologetic elbow to the nose style.
Mr. Smith puts his balls on the table and dares you to examine them in this original roller coaster ride of high's, lows, irony and humour.
The brutal honesty of this book will captivate, enrage and enamour the reader in equal dose, if you ever thought there must be more to the human experience than this then this is the book for you!

Go on read it, you know you want to!

A hallucinogenic tour de force. Peer through the veil into a detailed, balls out account of a man determined to discover the truth of being....and some other shit.

The style is scatter shot and jarring but this is only to be expected, the fact that the book was written while under the influence of LSD and other experimental chemicals means that it's a triumph that it exists at all.

Trying to write under the influence is near impossible, the keys on the keyboard writhe and scatter and a pen grows to the size of a log and soon becomes lost. Indeed this book is a first.

It also is a tale of personal growth and esoteric discovery presented in a no nonsense manner something I found inspirational and at times very funny.
