Improved Question Reading by J. G. Thompson Jr.Mentalists, here's the last word in question reading, using no chemicals, no stooges and no apparatus.

Any number of spectators write questions or other data on plain white cards, all of which are sealed by their writers themselves in opaque envelopes. Each spectator is designated by a number and these numbers are written on the envelopes. The performer gathers the questions, which are at no time out of sight of the audience, and begins to divulge the contents!. As soon as each question is answered, it is returned to the writer who acknowledges the card as the one on which he wrote and verifies...

Card Party by J. G. Thompson Jr. & Ned RutledgeExcellent work filled with strong card routines. Explanations are detailed and supported by photo illustrations. From the preface by Ned Rutdlege:
Jim and I have complementary minds. An idea from one of us sets up echoes in the brain of the other. Jim has a fantastic grasp of magical literature, and a high intelligence that puts his knowledge to work. The methods he comes up with are often unusual and always interesting. For me, they start wheels turning. I take the method, or nucleus of method, and begin re-shaping it for entertainment value...then I lay it in the laps of a live audience. ...

Top Secrets of Magic 3 by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the introduction by Martin Gardner:
With this distinguished background it is little wonder that his latest series of books, Top Secrets of Magic, of which this is the third, is a veritable treasure trove of material, clearly and simply explained, and displaying a remarkable knowledge of what has been done and is being done today in every branch of conjuring. The large clear photographs make the text delightfully easy to follow.

Top Secrets of Magic 2 by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the introduction by Milbourne Christopher:
I first heard of Jim Thompson in the pages of Ted Annemann's Jinx. Then his main interest was mental magic. I have never seen him perform but I have seen many magicians use the tricks he has put into print. I always visualize him as a mild mannered man who would make an excellent beacon in a blackout. See his "Moonlight Madness," page 301 in Annemann's Practical Mental Effects, or page 265 in My Best.

This current volume of "Top Secrets" is the second in a planned trilogy. You have most of the objects needed for the feats described. If something special is required, Jim will tell you how to make it, or where to buy it....

Top Secrets of Magic 1 by J. G. Thompson Jr.

What a wonderful book on sleight of hand magic with small objects this is - profusely illustrated with more than 200 photos, by a recognized inventor, author, and reviewer of magic.

From the introduction by Blackstone:

But, there has always been a dearth of practical routines, probably due to the difficulty encountered by most magicians in linking tricks into a smoothly flowing series of mysteries and, perhaps, because of some innate trait of laziness found in most of us. That is why I am so impressed and pleased with the text of Jim’s book. It truly helps to fill an unfortunate gap in magical...

Telepathic Trio by Eddie Clever & J. G. Thompson Jr.Thompson and Clever unite again to bring you three baffling mental mysteries that you and your audiences will enjoy.

Magicians and mentalists everywhere raved about this collection when it was first released. Long out of print, this revised manuscript is once again available to a new generation of performers.

Sh-h-h-h-h-h! (Clever) - A spectacular blindfold mystery with secret agent patter. Audience members tear a spectator-written letter to shreds and hand the pieces to the performer behind his back. The performer, unable to see the pieces or even discern which side is up, unfailingly...

T-Formation by J. G. Thompson Jr.J. G. Thompson, Jr's fabulous master-key to card control.

From the introduction by B. W. McCarron, "T-Formation (TF) is a monograph of card sleights that are not at all difficult for the average performer; yet they allow a nice range of performance possibilities. Forces, controls, peeks and even the versatile double lift are all given the 'Thompson treatment.' "

T-Formation teaches the average magician or mentalist an assortment of maneuvers with cards that are easy to execute but full of deceptiveness. In the author's words, T-Formation "enables the performer, with a minimum of effort, to perform...

Strongest Thought by J. G. Thompson Jr.We're going to let the words of the immortal Robert A. Nelson describe this amazing psychic demonstration.

A volunteer assistant (not a confederate) hands out to any spectator of his choice, white cards and envelopes and the performer requests these persons to "write something." The spectators comply and seal their cards in the envelopes provided, after which they are gathered by the volunteer who passed them out. All this is perfectly fair, for the performer doesn't leave the stage at any time. The volunteer assistant takes care of everything.

After securing all the envelopes, the volunteer mixes them...

Sleight Intended by J. G. Thompson Jr.From the foreword:
For years the pattern has been the same. A newcomer to magic invariably turns first to cards as a vehicle for mystification. He spends hours upon hours mastering difficult sleights and then, to his dismay, learns of the existence of easier and more effective maneuvers hidden away in magical literature - moves about which he could have no knowledge, but which would have made his previous struggles unnecessary, or, at least, eased them. Gradually he discards the results of many arduous hours of practice and substitutes the newly discovered and simplified versions until,...

The Living End by J. G. Thompson Jr.Over 200 different impromptu take-a-card trick endings.

From the introduction by John Braun:

He has definitely struck "pay dirt" in this book, which he has whimsically titled THE LIVING END. In simpler terms, this is an encyclopedic collection of endings for one of the most popular branches of Magic - the "take a card, look at a card, remember a card, think of a card, any card," opening.

Having completed this stage, the performer KNOWS either the identity of the card or its whereabouts in the pack, and sometimes he knows both. And, as John Northern Hilliard put it back in 1908 in DOWNS' ...

Centermental by J. G. Thompson Jr.The origin of the center tear is unclear. Some say it was used by mediums for a long time before magicians found out about it. Theodore Annemann was the one who made it popular among mentalists. Others believe that Martin Sunshine invented it, who passed it on to Theodore H. Arnold who shared it with Annemann. Either way, the principle is one of the most powerful at the disposal of mentalists.

This ebook describes in detail the various phases from the steal, to reading the center as well as other applications and tips.

Between Two Minds by J. G. Thompson Jr. & Ned RutledgeThompson and Rutledge are two extraordinary creative mentalists who have created entertaining and incredibly deceptive mental routines. Thompson writes in the preface: "I've enjoyed the joint effort. It tended to point up a number of basic truths that I hadn't thought about for a long time...such as how different two people can be, and how much better an effect can be made if two minds work on it."
