Michael Harner: The Way of the Shaman

"Instead of just observing what happened to the Conibo after they consumed the soul-vine ayahuasca, Harner imbibed the hallucinogen himself. 
It is obvious that not all anthropologists would be willing to take such a risk, but it is also clear that by becoming a participant instead of just an observer, he was able to learn more than he ever could have by just sitting on the sidelines and taking notes."
