202 Methods of Forcing - Any update?

Instead of mentally projecting your mentalism thoughts, type them here.

Is there a newer reference book that supercedes the Annemann classic "202 Methods of Forcing"? If not, shouldn't somebody write one?

If you're interested in card forces,
Lewis Jones recently released
an Encyclopedia of Impromptu Card Forces
(500+ forces with a Borrowed Deck)

Late night in the Big Easy? ;)

Have your people contact my people...
Maybe we can do lunch.

I've been busy lately (defending various coin plots, etc.) but for the galaxy... I should be able to pencil ya in.

PS: Doing a gig at Pat-O's on Wed (7-10) If you're in the neighborhood, I'll pop over and say hi.

Chuck Hickock's got a fine manuscript about forcing, specifically geared to the mentalist.

My manuscript on forces is described at


I published it because I could not find a good, single-volume resource that dealt with forces used in Mentalism.

This booklet will be invalauable to anyone who has an interest in Mentalism, especially someone newer to Mentalism.

Caution: No routines are presented. Rather, this is a resouce for selecting different forces when creating or modifying a routine.

I think I created a wonderful (well...in my opinion! :) force a couple of years ago that I now use all the time. As it is so useful I'm pretty certain somebody else must have done it before me but, I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere else, despite me going through all the usual classics. Does the '500 force' book you mention talk about any new forces that have been created?
