Living Mirrors

Just like all art, books reflect us. They reflect who we are, they reflect the world, and they reflect our true nature. They are living tomes which convey a beauty and a connection that cannot die. I read Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Classic Lit, Horror, and Non-Fiction.

Get High Now: Without Drugs

Get High Now (without drugs) - James Nestor

Get High Now* is an interesting book, but it's hard to recommend to everyone. At it's most basic level, this book is a How To guide on altering mental perception. Generally, the book has two kinds of Highs in it. Boring ways that you should actually try, like breathing exercises and meditation, and interesting ways that you should never try because it's extremely dangerous like taking nutmeg (never consume large quantities of nutmeg. It will mess you up.) If you are interested in trying new things, I can strongly recommend this book. If you are interested in the crazy things people are willing to do to get high, this book is for you. Finally, if you want a book to put on your coffee table that makes you look like an interesting character and impress your guests, then by all means, get this book. If you aren't any of those things, I'd recommend that you stay away, because this book isn't for you. It's one of those books that you get out of it what you put in. Get High Now!(Without Drugs) has very simple premise and is competently written, but it's a topic better suited for a blog series rather than a book. The book is okay, entertaining at time and  at others, but it's novelty wears out somewhere in the middle.fraser-spiral

If you're on the fence about the book, check out their website first. It has audio highs that are talked about in the book along with visual highs such as the one above. They even have an app!
