It Must Be Mindreading by George B. Anderson

This is one of George Anderson's most outstanding publication. All one-man effects. No confederates or assistants. No cumbersome or heavy gimmicks. Balance between close-up and platform material. Only two card effects, both for close-up. Tested material routined by a showman. Everything practical for today's working conditions.

  • The First Prediction: A practical discussion of the mental act.
  • No Questions Written: A new concept of question answering that qualifies as sensational.
  • "Easy Money" Mindreading: With a 2 cent gimmick that's worth $10.00.
  • Playing Card Mindreading: A specialized routine from which a mentalist can make a living.
  • Torn Center Deluge: A "twist" that makes the torn center dodge a real baffler.
  • Palmistry Versus Mindreading: A private-reading question answering routine that's years ahead.
  • My Best Billet Switch: You'll like it, too.
  • "Getting the Impression": A complete one man mindreading routine that is revolutionary. Terrifically simple and simply terrific.
  • Another Sealed Envelope: A sealed message revelation know to very few.
  • One Man Clip-Board Reading: Without advance preparation. No recess for copying, no "reader."
  • Alibi Answers: Sure-fire ways to handle trick questions without dodging them.
  • The Vital Spot in the Question Act: A secret worth many times the cost of the book.
  • The "Truth or Consequences" Prediction: A "flash" mental effect of "illusion" proportions without illusion problems.
  • A Mental Illusion: A big, showy trick...actually a headline act in itself.
  • The Mental Artist: A duplication of pictures drawn by spectators, line by line, as they mentally direct you while you're standing at a distance.
  • "Do As I Do" Book Test: Already the favorite book test of those few who have seen it.
  • The "No Hands" Book Test: A controlled coincidence book test is actually done by the spectators.
  • The Human Equation: Method and routine both new and different.
  • Mental Card Magic: Why it doesn't belong in the platform or club mental act and how to avoid it.
  • Card Muscles: All the "outs" for a classic trick.
  • The Ultimate Prediction: A "no carbon, no stylus" Swami test without confederates. Perfectly routined to answer every objection to the usual Swami prediction.
  • The Pocket Mindreading: A close up mental effect that's clean, foolproof and baffling.
  • The Crystal of the Future: The absolute ultimate in crystal gazing, where spectators see the answers to their questions.
  • A Lesson in Living From Magic: Two thousand words of honest, practical information that can greatly influence your earnings.
  • Bibliography: A candid discussion of other material in the field.
