A new principle "Proactive Anagram" is explained in this ebook. The power of this method is that it can be used to reduce a range of about 30 choices to just 5 choices in a single step. Normally, creating a progressive or branching anagram for about 30 or more words and performing it would be quite complex and cumbersome. That lengthy process would seem tedious to both the performer and the audience members.
But using this Proactive Anagram principle, a set of 30, 40 or even 50 different words can be reduced into a very short list of 5 or 6 words in a single step. This very interesting and powerful principle is a great tool which can be very useful for various prop less routines, if applied in the right manner.
A full routine with all the work done and ready to perform is included along with an alternative presentation process. In addition a mini routine is also included to show how quickly this can be constructed.
Further, a star sign routine using the Proactive Anagram principle is included which is totally prop less. This is a very interesting and flexible principle to learn and can be put to multiple uses. A country divination routine and a Hollywood star divination routine shared by David Burmeister is also included.

As with most of his other releases, this one has some brilliant thinking by this author going for it. The technique of Proactive Anagram is the unconventional result of raw, unbridled creative ideas tempered with amazing routines and presentations.
This is sure to cause a turning point in the way progressive anagrams are perceived and thought of. For me, this tops even the 'Prodigal' in terms of sheer innovation and the high value of 'tool-benefit' ratio. Very highly recommended.

This is a brilliant, unusual approach to PA's from a brilliant, gifted mentalist. Once the principles are fully understood you can make a PA of about anything you can imagine. The sky's the limit. If you have this ebook and THE PRODIGAL you definitely have DYNAMITE EFFECTS in your hands. I'll give this a 25+ rating. Well done my friend.

The UM is back with another progressive anagram utility. This one can best be described as a simplification or limiting procedure. It can save a lot of steps when doing a complicated anagram, such as one with names of super heroes. As usual, he's come up with a smart piece to use in presentation. He should collect his writings on anagrams in a book.
