Mind DivinationRobert A. Nelson
The Q&A act is one that many believe is the best in mental entertainment. The excellent method described here is one that many paid over $100 to obtain . . . and thought it was a bargain at that price.
Performer passes out small cards on which spectators write their questions and sign their name. Cards are collected, placed in small envelopes and sealed. On returning to stage, the first envelope is placed to performer's forehead and answered. This envelope is then opened for verification and immediately returned to the spectator who wrote it. This continues with as many messages read as you...

A Hobsonian HandbookJon Racherbaumer
Explorations, examples, and routines using equivoque.
Hobson's Choice: the choice of taking either what is offered or nothing else; the absence of choice. [after Thomas Hobson (1544-1631) of Cambridge, England, who rented horses and gave only one choice, that of the horse nearest the stable door]Equivoque or Magician's Choice in its myriad of forms is considered a First Principle by students of mentalism. What fascinates me is the elusiveness of this subject because no one has yet written a definitive, synoptic, and detailed magnum opus on the subject. There have been good piecemeal accounts written here and there about and most magicians understand how it basically works in specific cases; however, trying to ferret out its...

Psyclops Mind Reading SystemTommy Burnett
Here is what happens:
The performer shows his participant(s) a pack of blank index cards that have writing on one side (the other side is blank.) A different word, number and design are written on each card. The participant genuinely mixes them thoroughly and then selects one of the cards from the pack. They can remember everything on the card or just one item, it is totally a free choice. With little to no pumping you can tell them what they are thinking, duplicate a drawing, guess a pin number. Not only that, you can do this for up to 3 people at a time.
Over 60 pages of instructions,...

Advancing MotherTommy Burnett
Advancing Mother is a 'progressive' advancement in the revelation of the famous effect, Mother Of All Book Tests (MOABT) by Ted Karmilovich. If you already own a copy of MOABT then Advancing Mother is for you. If you don't, then hopefully this will inspire you to get one for yourself.
Tommy Burnett's thinking will take you down a short but winding road towards the goal of revealing a thought of word. By using Tommy's well thought out system you no longer need to secretly discover the first letter of the word. You can get an immediate hit without asking anything and in most cases get hit after...

Spirit SlateBrick Tilley
The Davenport Brothers caused a sensation in the last century by seeming to contact spirits. Leaving messages on blank slates was a common method of achieving this. Flaps, magnets and switching were among the ways to achieve results. Here is your chance to reproduce this phenomenon using an ordinary craft store slate, and a piece of chalk. A blank slate is cleaned as it is shown. Yet a bold chalk message appears without any cover or false moves. A stunning effect that startles onlookers. Easy to perform.

Sir Edwards' $100 Horoscope Demonstration Sales PlanRobert A. Nelson & Sir Edwards
One of the rarest of offerings from the Nelson Enterprises catalog is this horoscope pitch act that sold for the equivalent of $1600 when first introduced. Only the wealthiest of mentalists and psychic operators would have risked this huge sum in 1942, when the plan was first offered. While the steep cover price helped guarantee exclusivity, those who put the plan to use made big money with it. Now you can, too.
In this collection of six books, electronically "bound" together as one, you'll learn Sir Edwards' proven method of selling horoscopes, booklets and lucky pieces to a willing, "off-the-street" audience. Complete...

The secret of success in doing a question and answer act lies in the performer's ability to answer the questions intelligently and to the point.

The authors' understanding of the subject was so complete and basically sound that this book...

Birthdate Magic SquareChris Wasshuber
A spectator populates a row of a 4x4 square with any four numbers. You fill out the remaining 12 squares in seconds to construct a magic square. Does not require any math.
This has become my favorite impromptu magic square effect, because it is easier than a classic magic square - there is literally no math, unless you consider counting up or down by one math - and it produces a stronger effect with spectators. Thus a win-win all around.
The effect: Take any piece of paper, for example the backside of a restaurant receipt, and draw an empty 4x4 square. Then ask a spectator to fill in any...

The Ultimate Question RevealDevin Knight
One of the best ways to secretly know what questions a spectator has sealed inside an envelope.
When I was performing as psychic, Jason Michaels, this was one of my favorite ways to secretly learn information without carbons or center tears. This is one of my most guarded secrets.
The mentalist hands the sitter or spectator a small piece of paper, a pencil and a coin envelope. He requests the person to write on the piece of paper, one or two important questions that he would like answered psychically.
Once the spectator has written the questions, he is told to fold it into a small billet...

The magician has his head turned and he folds the bill into quarters and places the folded bill onto the spectator's hand. With no switches and no delay the magician reveals the unique serial number one by one leaving their spectators amazed.

Non-Verbal TransmissionDevin Knight & Al Mann
Imagine the performer going to a corner in any room, turning his back so he can’t see what is going on and having someone just point to a card from a deck spread face up on a table. With no verbal communication from his assistant, the performer then reveals the card.
He does this without seeing the deck and without the aid of secret electronics. The performer can be closely watched and nothing will be found to be amiss. This is a real fooler done under test conditions and will fool many magicians.
Full Effect: The mentalist or medium goes to a corner of the room and turns his back. He...
