A Strange and Whimsical Guide to Creativity
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
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.

Bought this TWICE
I bought the printed edition a couple of months ago, and liked it so much I decided to buy the e-Book (the iBook) of it so I can also read on my iPhone and iPad. Very useful advice, much of it is "common sense" and certainly "self-transformation" magic, which is the most important kind.
