How to Use This Book

You can read this book from cover to cover if you like, but each hack stands on its own, so feel free to browse and jump to the different sections that interest you most. If there’s a prerequisite you need to know, a cross-reference will guide you to the right hack.

We’ve tried out all the demonstrations in this book, so we know that for most people they work just as we say they do; these are real phenomena. Indeed, some are surprising, and we didn’t believe they’d work until we tried them ourselves. The explanations are summaries of the current state of knowledge—often snapshots of debates in progress. Keep an open mind about these. There’s always the chance future research will cause us to revise our understanding.
