Complete instructions on how you can make up these incredible envelopes yourself and have a lifetime supply for a small investment. Richard gives you his own handling as well as a Fourth Dimensional Telepathy effect and a great Q & A routine.
Cards in Pocket
This is the effect where the spectator randomly places two cards in their pockets. The mentalist names the cards and then the spectator tells which card is in each pocket. This is a surefire method to ensure you're always right.
Al Mann Routine
This incredible take on a prediction effect is a true reputation maker. An audience member secretly writes a question and the mentalist writes an answer. Each paper is sealed in an envelope and the spectator mails them together. The participant receives their own envelope a few days later and it contains a direct answer to their question. As an exercise in creation, Richard shows you six methods (actually eight!) to accomplish this miraculous effect!
For the first time in one place, Richard tells you exactly the type of swami he uses, how to prepare it and how to fit it. If you're a working mentalist, this section is worth the cost of the book on its own.
Miracle Thought Projection Expanded
This is the final word on one of Richard's signature, reputation-making effects. It was one of mentalism's most closely-guarded secrets for years. He teaches what to do in every situation and even offers a wonderful new way to handle a bad response. If that is not enough, he shows how he ends the effect to make sense of the routine, regardless of what happens.
Stand-Up Die Routine
If you have one of the Whispering Die kits, you will love this stand-up parlor routine that turns the effect into a mentalism showpiece. But, the good news is you can do the routine with any type of die box. Its an effect you'll want to do every chance you get.
An incredibly clean and powerful newspaper test where pieces from any newspaper are folded up and one is freely and openly chosen. A committee decides on what is important on the piece and that is shown to be on a prediction paper in sight from the beginning. Very easy to learn. You can do this immediately once you know the secret!
Direct Book Test
With nothing but four ordinary hardcover novels, the mentalist performs a mind blowing routine of mind reading with a wonderful ending. This method is clean beyond belief and will leave the audience speechless. Richard gives you two great ways to bring the routine to a spectacular finish. No special gimmicks needed.
Some Final Thoughts
Richard concludes this landmark series with some of his own observations about mentalism. As fans of Richard will know, these essays have always been some of the more important sections of any book he has written. And this is no different. You'll never look at your mentalism the same way again.
