Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Nestor, a writer living in San Francisco, was spurred by a late uncle's collection of methods used worldwide for getting high through natural methods and techniques, including visual aids, breathing techniques, and sound, to set up a lab of friends and see whether they worked. He went on to form a collection of over 175 techniques, none involving drugs--though some involve natural substances, like sage, or ants--and describing their use, effect, and technique. Certainly intriguing, this is an unusually fun how-to volume. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
