The Book of Ordinary Oracles presents masterful, original, and truly clever divination experiments which perfectly represent the true intent of oracles and so-called "fortune-telling" practices. As a practitioner and author myself in the divinatory arts, I recommend this enjoyable small book for its playful and astute delivery of large ideas. Once again, author Lon DuQuette applies his rare gift of humor and invention to a wealth of esoteric knowledge without ever diminishing its value.
Oracular practices, we learn, are built upon the lost art of questioning-one's motives, choices, expectations, etc. in matters of self-perceived consequence. "When you actually know the question" writes DuQuette, "the answer is everywhere, and you can see it in anything you observe." This book invites you to play alongside a master soothsayer, discover oracular tools in everyday objects, and learn the necessary perspectives that make divination immediately appealing and relevant to modern sensibility. Though augury has never been this much fun, despite itself the book leaves you primed with more psychic fuel than you ever bargained for.
