Comments: While the majority of these forces are for cards, there are quite a few especially in the latter half of the book that are for book pages or that can be used in mentalism to force specific numbers. Although the numbers only go up to 194, there are several Deck Changes included that bring the number of entries up to 202. The photo at the left shows an earlier 1932, 17 page version of this book with 101 (actually 102) methods. Available as an e-Book from LearnedPigProject
