The Fource by Dr. Bill Cushman
he Fource takes well-established psychological methods that all mentalists know and stretches them in completely new directions and dimensions. Remember what Dr. Bill did with Miraskill?
He took a seventy-year-old idea and turned it on its head, breathing new life into a classic of mentalism and resulting in the highly acclaimed Mirabill.
Or how about what Dr. Bill did with the venerable Instant Magic Square? His inspired thinking morphed it into Subliminal Square, a completely original and new presentation published in Banachek’s award winning Psychological Subtleties 2. Well, he’s done it again.
The Fource is the result of one of those rare inspirations that seemingly appear out of nowhere, arriving “wholecloth.” The universal response from everyone who saw an early draft was “Why haven’t we thought of this before?”
Along with Dr. Bill’s ideas, The Fource ebook includes incredible innovations from Larry Becker, Millard Longman, Alain Nu, Rick Roth, Greg Arce, Julian “Bev” Moore, Alexandre, Sean Waters, Jerome Finley, Enrique Enriquez, Lior Manor, Christopher Taylor, Bryn Reynolds and Tony Razzano.
The Fource ebook also includes a folder of JPGs to be used with a variety of contributions including the tasty Outlaw flavored contribution from Rick Roth “Fourceclosure” that can play close up or on the largest of stages. Dr. Bill also supplies links to sites that will allow you to easily customize your own similar presentations.
Subliminal Square mentioned above has been reborn as the “Sublime Subliminal Square” and is now completely hands off. Just you, the audience and…The Fource.
Not only does Dr. Bill’s new ebook supply a variety of meaningful presentations for his original methodology, it also contains several routines that don’t use The Fource yet tap into the same genre of “group dynamics.” Workers know the value of effects that capture the imagination of the entire audience and “gets those hands up.”
“Performing effects with all of the spectators is something that many mentalists and magicians miss out on. The Fource gives you several very strong options to employ with the entire audience. I am using it in every show. Thanks Bill!” – Lior Manor“Hi Bill. Eureka! Why the hell didn’t I think of that!!!! Well we all did, but never as (deleted for security reasons J). It’s positively brilliant. An opener par excellence. Great thinking Bill. Just my cup of tea. Simple, powerful and memorable. You newest admirer.” – Larry Becker
“First of all, I think The Fource is absolutely the most brilliant way of performing (deleted for security reasons J). Everything since Ted’s “No-Prop Act” has been, I feel, a re-hash, whereas your routine breathes completely new life into it. I will be performing it your way from now on. Wonderful stuff, Bill.” – Gabe Abelson
“Stop talking about The Fource!!!! It’s too good!!! It’s definitely one of those things that is going to have everyone saying, “You mean I had the ability to do this all the time and I never thought of it!? What was I thinking!!!!?” – Greg Arce
“I love simple, effective ideas that are truly new. The Fource is a one of them. It takes standard material and elevates it many notches. I have been using my own variation of this effect in my current show, but plan to adapt The Fource as a definite improvement! Many top names have contributed to this work and I found myself considering ways I can use some of their input for some my other material. The book made me think and that’s what I love. This is not pipedream stuff, but workable presentations that really hit home with your audience as a whole. I am excited by this book!” – Richard Osterlind
