Despite the suggestive title, this book is actually about a lot more than just getting high without drugs. The introduction describes the author's discovery of an eccentric uncle's notebooks filled with recipes for getting high on everything from kava to breathing techniques to catnip to colored noise. In that sense, it's about humanity passing down information about the human condition, in all its manifest weirdness. Ancient traditions and new scientific discoveries about the nature of the mind ...more

Get High Now: Without Drugs Get High Now* is an interesting book, but it's hard to recommend to everyone. At it's most basic level, this book is aHow 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 andmeditation, andinteresting ways that you should never trybecause it'sextremely dangerouslike taking nutmeg (neverconsume large quantities of nutmeg.It will mess you up.) If you are interested ...more

Not bad. I bought it purely for fun, and it has provided me with entertainment worth what I spent, so no complaints. Most of the exercises in the book won't actually get you high, just provide you with heightened or slightly distorted senses for a period of time. A few of the breath exercises were quite interesting, and really gave me a new sense of how connected we are to our breathing-whether we realize it or not.

This is a really interesting book that talks about ways you can get high without the use of illegal drugs. They cover topics such as self-hypnosis, licking toads, lucid dreaming, taking all kinds of different herbs and spices, and even have little "get high now" experiments. One of the funniest, is closing your eyes in the shower, allowing the water drops to splash against your eyelids, creating a kaleidoscopic reverie of colors. I haven't really tried much of what they suggest, but it's still s ...more

This is a book filled with optical illusions, audio stimulants and others theories I had not tested out. It is one of those books that would take someone a lifetime to get through, if they do each stimulant individually. I only did a few.
My favorite was a popular one, off Page 162 - Chronosynclastic Infundibulum. It was pretty cool to do.
I think all scientific minds will appreciate this read, but not many others. I suggest checking out the website, then the book.
(2.5/5)

The "get high" refers to the perception altering effects of this entertaining collection of optical illusions, brain twisters, logic problems, and mind blowers. Best ingested in small doses. Reading straight through is a bad trip (headache inducing).
Angie
Interesting, maybe not as in depth as I would have expected. The information is a bit watered down and most of it I already knew about. It's trying a little too hard to be "hip", but luckily I didn't spend any money on it and found it at the library instead.
Anna Schmidt
There are a number of great meditations, breath work exercises, and optical & auditory illusions in this book. However, the author's pseudo-witty, sarcastic tone is annoying as hell.
Ian
seems gimicky at first glance but this is really a handbook for seeing the world in new ways. I have tried quite a few of these exercises and almost all of them deliver.
Jerman
I think I'll always keep this book on my shelf, because its better than parlour games- its science with friends and trancendental visualizations!
Emily A.
The website has some cool auditory effects, but the book itself is mostly shallow.
Adam
A great primer on how to play around with your mind-body.
