Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll explains the science of hedonism and the hedonism of science. It is an interesting look at Sex (18 write ups), Drugs (15) write ups and rock n roll (26 write ups) from a science perspective. I wasn’t really sure what to make of it, but it was interesting and strange all at the same time. I mean – stories about testicle implants? Spiders making webs on various types of drugs, some history thrown in for good measure, research ta shows music and drugs can tickle he same neural networks, drugs influence on music, we are born to sing, and much, much more.

If you’re into science and learning more about sex, drugs and rock n roll in a scientific way, then this is the book for you.  There’s also a handy index if there are just certain items you’re looking to learn more about!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.

About the Book

The book went SUPER into depth about one drug specifically: Weed AKA cannabis… this drug was raved about non stop in the book for its healing properties and how much it helped the mental health of the anyone taking it. It seemed to be the drug of choice for the rockstars and anyone else in between. Cannabis was just all the rave with the rock and roll community in the 70s. No matter how you put it weed is definitely up there in terms of what type of drug you want to take and how you want to take it theres just so many ways.

Full of noise and color, Sex, Drugs, and Rock ’n’ Roll looks at scientists and their craft, how hedonistic impulses inform our highest pursuits, and how the renegades of science have illuminated the secrets of our deepest impulses. It is a fascinating tale of scientists on the edge, experimenting on themselves and others, that asks the big (and strange) questions about what it means to be human, about consciousness and happiness, the future and past of our species, our scientific knowledge, and our culture. Not to mention our parties. It will pull you in and gross you out, but it never loses sight of the stories, ideas, and scientific discoveries that make sex, drugs, and rock ’n’ roll so timeless.
