This is a terrific little book, a mishmash of psychology (much of which is debunked in actual studies now, but shhh), esoteric tradition, and some really really cool artwork. It's an exercise in changing your point of view, both in the book itself and how it presents its content, and in the exercises it suggests. One of the best books of modern magic I've seen. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0399171797, Paperback)

DIY MAGIC offers a series of reality hacks encompassing self-help, philosophy, psychology, and inspiration, that will help artists, writers, and any creative types find new sources of inspiration.

This is a book of magic. This is a book of mind hacks. This is a cookbook for creativity.
 
In DIY Magic, Anthony Alvarado provides readers with a collection of techniques for accessing deeper levels of creative thought—for hacking into their subconscious. From Salvador Dali's spoon technique and ornithomancy (divination by crows), to bibliomancy and using (legal) stimulants, the exercises in this book will help anyone chasing the muse—from artists and musicians, to writers and more—as they tug at the strings of everyday reality and tap into the magic of their own minds.
