Several of the endorsers on the book’s cover, as well as some of the contributors to routines in the book, are people whose work I respect. Yet I am afraid that I remain unconvinced.

This is the force of a specific number between one and ten. It is not the force of any number that you choose.

There are two questions here. First, is the force successful? Second, if it is successful, is it transparent?

The author tells us that this force works for him 80% of the time. One out of five persons fails to say the number. I was, unfortunately, less successful. I tried it on 5 lay persons and 4 magicians and only hit two times. Sadly, both of the successes were able to explain exactly what had happened afterward. In other words, while successful, the force was transparent to them.

Now I am happy to admit that I may be missing something here. Perhaps if I saw Dee perform this, I would understand something that reading the book did not give me. At the same time, I did feel that reading this booklet was informative (I really liked Dee’s routine, Loki, a clever poker chip divination) and the book also got my thinking going in many interesting directions. If word magic is of interest to you, I think you will enjoy reading this as well – even if you do not choose to put this force into your show.

Manufacturer's Description:

ANATE is a psychological technique.

It's a subtlety that is not 100% sure fire, but when you get the technique down and you hit, You'll know it.

Imagine placing one card on the table, face down.
The spectator decides on a card, they turn over the card to reveal a perfect match. The place explodes.

Imagine holding your wallet in full view and asking a spectator to name a card. The card is then instantly pulled from your wallet.

Imagine something that you can carry with you always, to create impossible, unbelievable prop-free demonstrations with boundaries as limitless as you imagination.

This is ANATE.

There is no indexing, no gimmicks, no stacks, no nothing.
All you need is a single playing card, or a maximum of four cards in your wallet, or maybe a post-it note to write a prediction.

This book is FULL of many routines, techniques and outs for use with the ANATE concept. With the correct study and performance you will blow people's minds, its not for everyone...Is it for you?

"Dee Christopher is of a new breed of mentalists who transcend contrivance and hack the human brain itself to create deception." - Andrew Mayne

"I have worked for years to be able to place a single card face down on a table and have the spectator name it and never hit the nail on the head. Dee took a sledge hammer and forced the nail right through the wood with this one. This is the most stunning mental effect I do!" - Alan Rorrison
