Head Tricks is an incredible book from Joel Dickinson filled with a variety of hard-hitting effects that are super simple to perform, yet astound every audience. These routines are remarkably versatile. Both mentalists and magicians, as well as close-up magicians and stage or parlor magicians, will find value here.
Your participant is handed three objects to mix. You then prove you predicted your spectator's actions perfectly.
Thought-of playing cards are revealed and predicted ahead of time.
After your spectator correctly guesses which hand an object is in 5 times, you produce a prediction that proves you knew the entire outcome well in advance. Then, jaws will drop when you reveal that you also knew every decision the participant would make. Even more, the prediction has been in the participants pocket from the start.

"Lovely, Lovely. Volition is great." Jan Forster
"Joel, this is genius! There were a few times while reading the routine ["Foreseen"] when a big smile appeared on my face. This is a brilliant routine and finally a "which hand" type routine that I want to perform! No logic puzzles or gimmicks, just very clever construction of a routine that is not only easy, but practically impromptu!" Iain Moran
"Joel has really moved forward the "which hand" plot. This is a very elegant solution, with some clever thinking and efficient routining." Marc Paul
