John Lilly, So Far.. is not an objective biography. Nor is it a critical assessment of his life's work. It is, however, a engaging account of one fascinating man's personal journey. As we follow Lilly from childhood through his later years (up to about a decade before his death), we meet an extraordinary cast of characters--from doctors and scientists to LSD explorers and the gurus of the human potential movement to dolphins and beings who may or may not have existed outside Lilly's head.

Although the book is written from Jeffrey's third-person perspective, it clearly relies on Lilly's own account and assessment of his life. Perhaps this is appropriate in a book about a scientist who experimented so much on himself, but it makes for an awkward and often unsatisfying narrative style.

So, there may well be a better biography of Lilly to be written. But, all the same, I couldn't put this one down.
