    Highly Recommended for all close-up performers.

    Contents include:

    Chapter One: Focus on Cards

    It's in the Bag: Card is selected and returned. Deck is wrapped in plastic food bag. Selected card penetrates the bag.

    Trevor's Technique: Double Riffle Control: 2 card control

    Card Shark Two: Card is selected and returned. Card case represents a shark and runs toward the helpless swimmer deck. The deck is riffled and the selected card pops out. Well, half the card pops out, in a jagged piece -- the other half is found in the shark (card case).

    The Mine Detector: A selected card found by a mine detector (made from wood and bang wand). When the card is turned over, its back now has magician's name and phone number.

    Reflections: A card is peeked at by a spectator and revealed. Shows how to make a special peek deck that can be shuffled.

    Coin Selector: A coin vanishes and locates the selected card.

    Monte Plus: Nice "in the hands" Monte using standard cards and bent corner ruse.

    Monte Plus Twist: As above, but the key card is held horizontal.

    Monte Plus Elmsley: Can use as an intro to others.

    Trevor's Technique: A Zarrow Zwindle. Poker hand idea.

    Chapter Two: Double Focus on Cards

    Add on Plus: Alternative to Braue Add On move.

    Le Carte Lewis: Three cards are peeked at. The Magician removes three cards and fans them to each spectator, each denying their card is there. Suddenly the selections appear!

    Trevor's Swivel Force Swindle: A force

    Three Cards Across: Two spectators are each given 10 cards. Three cards travel from one to the other.

    The Five Card Mental Trick: A variation of Dai Vernon's 5 Card Mental Force.

    The Trevor Lewis Second Deal: In 4 Lessons

    Fake Middle Deal: Simulation of the middle deal using seconds.

    Spectator Finds a Card: Three approaches to have a second spectator find the first spectator's selection.

    Chapter Three:

    The Para-Die Prediction: Card with pictures of 2 dice are shown, each adding up to a different total. Spectator selects one, and it matches a prediction.

    The Perfect Match!: Two dice are shaken in a large matchbox. End total is predicted.

    May I have the Envelope Please?: Envelope utility

    Borrowed Bill Burning Bright: Application of envelope utility

    Trevor's Benson Bowl Routine: With a bowl, 4 sponges, and a toy plastic dinner roll. Three sponge balls appear beneath the bowl. The balls travel from hand to bowl, and eventually the roll is discovered.

    Chapter Four: Focus on Coins

    Trevor's Coins in Tumbler: Four coins to cup routine. No gimmicks.

    Coins Through the What Else: (Table!). No gimmicks

    Me-Too Matrix: Sympathetic coins/four coin assembly. No gimmicks.

    Hole Card: After several comedic false starts, a coin is pushed through a too small hole in a card.

    Chapter Five: Focus on Comedy

    Coincidence: Strips of paper are torn and eliminated until only one remains. It matches the number of cigarettes in a jar.

    The Blazing Match Box (Book): Gimmick to light matches.

    The Matchless Prediction: Book of matches is shown with some already burnt. Two cards are selected. The 7 card selected matches the 7 burnt heads! The 8... doesn't match anything. Suddenly the book of matches catches on fire, the fifteen matches matching the 7 + 8 card combo.

    The Fetsch Force: Use for above trick.

    A Little Light Humor: Match gag.

    Watch!: Coin tossed hand-to-hand turns into a watch.

    Blow Die: Die is "blown" up.

    The Razor Blade Trick: Stack of blades string themselves. Lots of squeamish comedy!

    Broken and Restored Spectacles: All borrowed.

    The Sharpshooter: A hole is shot in a die at the selected number.

    A Funny Puzzle: Crossword gag.

    Chapter Six: Focus on Dealer Effects

    Flog - A Sponge Ball Routine: A full sponge ball routine based on golf with comedy patter. Splitting a ball, in the spectator's hand, and a "FORE (4)" finish.

    Die and Domino Divination: Dominoes used to match a die selection.

    Tamariz Rabbits Rabbits Rabbits: Comedy bit using the Apple cards.

    The Brema Nut: Nut off string routine using a spring-close ring box.

    Commercial Chop Cup routine: A quick, straightforward non-insulting routine with double load.

    Tip from Trevor: Restaurant/hotel tip.
