Overview

Get High Now is an illustrated, mind-blowing magic carpet ride of more than 175 ways to alter human perception and consciousnesswithout drugs or alcohol. Culled from science, physiology, spiritual practices, and the audio visual arts, these "all natural" highs playfully and safely explore the mind-body connection to entertaining and illuminating effect. Accessible and well-researched, each entry introduces concepts such as lucid dreaming, optical and auditory illusions, controlled breathing, meditation, time compression, and physical and mental exercises, explaining the ways in which they affect our minds and bodies and how to do them. Readers follow the author and his "HighLab" testing team through mind-bending and sometimes hilarious investigations, such as how to lull the mind into hallucinatory states with audio loops; why multiple bee stings lead to euphoric states; what cheeses to eat to induce psychedelic lucid dreams; how to control your breathing to create an out-of-body experience; and many more. Including solo, tandem, and group highs, Get High Now features hundreds of ways to calm or stimulate the senses and open new windows to experiencing the world.

    Freaking Hilarious and Incredibly Fascinating

    This is the coolest book I've read in years, filled with so many mind-blowing tidbits my head is spinning just thinking about them all. The author takes a fun, light-hearted approach to insanely weird and complicated science and biology issues, resulting in a fully satisfying read. I'm 55 and found this book engaging, fascinating, and often hilarious. It's really like nothing else I've read in a long time -- and won't soon forget. Get it and see for yourself.

    Not what I thought it was

    I was a little disappointed in this one because it turned out not to be what I thought. It's a great book I think for adolescent kids but not so much for adults. A lot of the stuff you already know ie optical illusions, and things like that. Over all I'd give it a pass.
