I recently bought 202 Methods of Forcing.

I am pleased with the product.

Does anybody have this manuscript and what forces do you have the most success with.

Got mine from trickshop.com

I think that I will have some fun with these along with the forces in Banacheks PS

Good times!!

If this is the Anneman book, it covers a lot of ground from books to cards etc. Its a good read.

I posted this response a while back when Forcing Methods were discussed.

-----------------------

I define a force as “any method of controlling a person’s selection from among several options, so the person ends up with the one option the mentalist wants.” When a mentalist uses a force effectively, it appears to the audience that a free choice is being made. But, in fact, it is not a free choice. The mentalist skillfully controls the selection.

Here is a list of forces for the serious Menalist - none of which uses playing cards. Please understand that there may be additional forces...and these forces could be categorized several different ways.

Each is briefly described in Mentalism, Incorporated: Volume Two.

---------------------------------------


Verbal/Manipulative Forces These forces rely primarily upon verbal deception or sleight-of-tongue. These forces are truly impromptu and almost always use items that the audience members supply.

1. Equivoque
2. Psychological Forces
3. Miscall Force
4. Peek & Force with a Borrowed Book
5. Newspaper Tear Force
6. PATEO Force
7. 10/11 Force and other variations

Mechanical Forces These forces rely upon items that are supplied by the performer. These items appear normal, but are often gaffed. During the routine, the mentalist attempts to make the items appear secondary (or inconsequential) to the mental ability being displayed.

8. Bluff Force
9. Mis-Covered Books and Magazines
10. Page-Forcing Books
11. Self-Gaffed Books
12. Word Forcing Books
13. Newspaper Column Force
14. Gimmicked Page Force
15. Limited Viewing Force
16. Green Bean Force
17. Switch Force
18. Switch Switching Wallets and Envelopes Force
19. Transparent Forcing Bags
20. Forcing Boxes and Chests
21. Non-Marking Pen/Pencil Force
22. Double-Sided Coin Force
23. Mathematical Forces — Self working
24. Numeric Total Forces
25. Playing Card Substitutes

Chuck was good enough a while back to send me an essay from his above cited work.

I found it to be well written and I would say judging from the contents and the sample I received it would be of a great value to those in search of such information.

I do point out I do not own this book but from what I have seen I would have definitely purchased it had it been available years ago.
(And saved myself a good deal of money and time)



Best Wishes,

Jim

MoJave.

It does give ways of doing what you ask, but they aren't as straight forward as "pick a page and word and I'll tell you what it is" kind of thing.
But it does point you in the right road.

Chuck,

I'm interested in your book. You say that you briefly describe verbal forces in it. How briefly, if your happy to give me that info?
As well as your book, can you maybe point me towards books that deal with that type of material, forcing?

Jack Dean's "The Equivoque Choice" covers all of what you are looking for in regards to verbal forcing.

The material on forces in Volume Two takes up 45 pages. The review of Volume Two in the current Magic tells you more about the value of what those 45 pages contain.

I talk about equivoque...and cite three sources.

Jack Dean's booklet is one great source. As is Maven's booklet and what's in the Berglas book.

I offer a few ideas about my approach to equivoque as well that have never been in print.
