Sounds interesting. I'll be on the look-out for it. Checked the net for a pdf version, couldn't find one, but did come across this one of his

I've tried a floatation/sensory deprivation tank a couple of times - without drugs though. Still enjoyed the silence, the darkness and the feeling of being weightless.
