I recently ordered this booklet and thought I might as well post a review for future potential buyers. This is a great booklet! If you are looking to learn several ways to force cards, numbers, or other miscellaneous things such as colors then this booklet is the one to get! It is chock full of clever ideas.

Some of the forcing methods given are a little awkward but most are pretty good. This booklet is well worth adding to your personal library.

I believe that however one can get it, they should own it. These are some great ideas on forcing for the serious magicican.

However you get it, worth having. Not expensive as a hard copy purchase.Should be on every shelf for reference purposes.Recommended.

This is a classic, but like other classics it is dated.

Good points: there are not just card forces discussed here, but forces of numbers, colors, etc. And the wide variety of items discussed is sure to stimulate your imagination.

On the other hand, among the card forces there are too many (to my mind) of the lay the cards down in a pattern, have the spectator give a number, and then pick the starting point and direction of count to arrive at your force card. Another issue is that details are lacking; even the classic force gets just a few lines.

For a great overview of forcing methods, however, you can't go wrong.

Although almost a (modern) classic already on its own, Lewis Jones' magnificent "Encyclopaedia of Impromptu Card Forces" must be considered the only worthy successor nowadays.
Unlike 202, the forces need no gimmicks and some are published for the first time. You can't go wrong having both onto your shelf!
