This PDF is called Shared Secrets because several well-known performers in the past, U.F. Grant, Syd Bergson, Al Mann and I, all released the same ideas independently. This proves that great minds often think alike. In this release you get three effects:
ULTIMATE NUMBER FORCE - you get one of the most amazing number forces ever devised. No complicated math or contrived moves. This is one of the simplest ways devised to force a 3-digit number and will amaze you when you see the subtle secret. This is worth the price of the PDF by itself. Foolproof.
EASY WAY TO KNOW SOMEONE'S THOUGHTS - this was a favorite of Al Mann and was used by him often. A spectator writes a word or draws a picture on an ungimmicked index card. This is done behind the performer's back. The card is folded by the spectator concealing the information. The performer turns around and immediately burns the card. Without hesitation, the performer reveals the word or duplicates the drawing. No chemicals, sleights, center tears or impression devices. This will be your preferred method once you see how simple it is.
IMPROVED CLIPLINE - an improved method and presentation created by Syd Bergson based on the original U.F. Grant Clipline. The mentalist predicts a freely chosen line from a newspaper column that was chosen by three spectators to eliminate collusion.
You get all of the above for one low price.

Last 2 are well known to magicians. But the number force is brilliant. Even works with newspapers but the number is only 2 digits. Most teen magazines apply. You can do the old pin-up posters vanishing from an envelope and the chosen celebrity appears in a picture frame. The forced number can use a list of people. I highly recommend the force alone for $6.

A superb collection of two strong 'info-gathering' methods and a number force. As a creator of methods for mentalism on television, I use many 'info-gathering' cheats, of which some carry an element of 'chance'. In 'Shared Secrets' Devin Knight clearly explains three stress-free sure-fire ways of making everything go the mentalist's way. Recommended for all those seeking that 'impossible' feel to their routines.
