When it comes to mental health and self-care, the literature is plentiful. That's why Ayelet Waldman's A Really Good Day: How Microdosing Made a Mega Difference in My Mood, My Marriage, and My Life is such a revelation. Waldman's approach, taking miniscule doses of LSD to manage her mood disorder, is unorthodox, but her brand of wit and unapologetic candor is invigorating. A former public defender and an adjunct professor at the UC Berkeley School of Law, Waldman, who developed and taught a course on the legal implications of the "war on drugs," brings her professional experience to bear in this deeply personal reflection. Medaya Ocher, managing editor of the Los Angeles Review of Books, joins her for a conversation.
