Isn’t it amazing how a simple phrase or idea can give you a hook? Yes, the very hook that frames a pedestrian trick and turns it into a miracle. Henning Nelms book Magic and Showmanship was full of ideas on how to find such hooks. Once you have the hook, the whole presentation falls naturally into place.

The first routine in this book by Stanton Carlisle is a great hook, even if it is for a card trick. But, you see the hook can be used for other effects where cards aren’t even used. Here the Chain of Thought effect is where a chain of spectators each add to a thought to come up with a playing card and the performer then shows a chained deck containing his prediction. One thought logically leads to the next.

This is Mentalism and Showmanship!
