Par Lewis Jones
Livre en anglais.
There has never been a book quite like this before. It is the first-ever encyclopedic collection of card forces.
These forces don’t make use of gimmicked cards of any kind. Many of them are well off the beaten track, and many have never appeared in print before.
The previous British edition was limited to just 300 copies and sold out quickly. This American edition makes this work available to wider audience at a most reasonable price. It contains over 500 forces, and these are illustrated with more than a hundred photographed illustrations.
Steve Beam, funny man and card expert extraordinaire, gave us the following quotes:
« If you are looking for the best ways to force yourself and your cards on future audiences, this is the book for you. »
« Lewis Jones has marshaled his forces and published them in a giant volume. For those who believe that free choice is over-rated, this book was built for you. May the Source be with you. »
Steve Bryant in reviewing the British printing, said « Lewis Jones’s hardbound Encyclopedia of Impromptu Card Forces (subtitle: 500 Forces with a Borrowed Deck), weighing in at a whopping 294 oversized pages, is all its title and subtitle claim it to be. And to repeat that number, it’s five hundred practical forces. For this second edition Lewis Jones has rewritten, reshuffled, and expanded his prior compilation of practical card forces into the following categories: Blind forces, Combination forces, Comedy forces, Count forces, Cut forces, Equivocation forces, Forcing formulas, The glide, The hold out, Locators, Multiple forces, Probability forces, Spelling forces, Stop forces, and Switches. The list includes old favorites as well as those that will be new to you. … This is a grand resource... »
