The Here and Now by Ann BrasharesThe cover features a mandala incorporating the title, a chair, radial lines, and the word "Remember" repeated four times. The first section is a short autobiography, describing Alpert's successes as a psychologist, his research with Timothy Leary into psychedelics at Harvard , and his subsequent anxiety when this research did not resolve his spiritual questions.
