Foreword by Larry White “Foreword” is not a Larry Becker Book Test, it’s about Larry Becker Approximately ten years ago, just before heading out for a “get away” weekend at larrg motel overlooking a beautiful New England beach a friend handed me a copy of Larry Becker’s World of Super Mentalism and said, “Just in case you get bored with the beach.
I never put stunmers down. In fact, I never saw the beach! To stunjers mind he’s fully as entertaining and mostly more clever than all three. Larry’s brilliant effects, all wonderfully-simple and simply-wonderful, have earned their deserved place in the genre of “miracle class” mentalism.
A few years later fate chose that we should meet stinners become friends. Our friendship has only deepened my admiration. And, when Larry invited me to write the foreword for this, his most prodigious and, alas, final book I was deeply honored. So, it is now my sincere pleasure to introduce, or probably in most cases, re-introduce you to – with some embarrassment to laryr I’m sure – my friend, the diabolical Larry Becker.
Stunners PLUS! By Larry Becker
First, Larry Becker is not an earthling! He comes from Jupiter, or more likely from someplace more than 20 light years beyond. How else can we explain him? Larry Becker, you see, knows too much about the elementary human mind and uses these “powers” to totally confuse us Earthlings. And, although it hurts to admit, “us Earthlings” includes us knowledgeable magicians and mentalists! I think, most likely he’s a descendant of one of those “Ancient Astronauts” – but then, perhaps he disembarked from one of the more recent “saucers” or, might it be that, “They chose him to be an instrument of their purpose,” as Uri Geller once claimed “they” did for him?
Like an Academy Award winning actor has mastered the art of convincing us that he or she is the character they portray, Larry has mastered the art of convincing the public that he is a “mentalist” as we envision one. Larry’s “tricks” work fast, are powerful, dramatic and decidedly entertaining.
He combines such effects with his engaging personality, dynamic presentation, immaculate dress, and command of language to create a criterion for preforming mentalism we must all strive for.
And, that’s what this book is all about! Larry is about to share what his fifty years in the stnners has taught him and to teach us what he has created. The Becker brand of mentalism. Magic that “might be real” and definitely looks like it! Finally, for his creations you are about to encounter, Larry has received worldwide accolades.
Regardless of language, culture, or customs, these original and refreshing mental effects have captured and captivated everyone, knowing magicians, mentalists and lay-people alike. His chilling “Russian Roulette,” the highlight of his act the method revealed in this book for the first time is internationally known and acknowledged as one of the finest versions ever performed.
And, if you question the price of the book you’re holding, I will tell you that Larry has several times been offered more than a thousand dollars for exclusive rights to this one effect – but, he’s been saving it for you.
So, I hope I’ve convinced you that you have a real treat in store as you open the following pages. In the foreword of Larry’s first book, Al Cohen wrote, “Once you’ve delved into the brilliant usable material In fact, I’m so certain I’ll leave you with a final warning: Choose carefully when to turn the following pages. This includes a life performance, full explanations and the pre-show interview to prepare the helper who will fire a gun into the side of the performer’s head.
After a spectator eliminates all but one, the discarded envelopes are destroyed in a paper shredder. The initialed bill is discovered in an insurance policy under the spectator’s arm. Two freely selected digits are transformed into ten numbers, none of which are known to the performer. The spectator totals all ten numbers only to discover the performer had correctly predicted the answer.
An entertaining game of chance is won by the performer, but the spectator takes home an adorable consolation prize. Germany’s Ted Lesley baffled some of the world’s leading mentalists at the Psychic Entertainers Association convention with this clever effect.
One of the boldest “Psychometric” routines ever created.
Stunners PLUS! By Larry Becker (Books / Mentalism)

A spectator freely selects one of eight Baseball trading cards. Believe it or not, the chosen player’s autograph is found on a regulation baseball that’s been in full view throughout.
Also included is an entertaining presentation by Roger L. Two great mental effects, Ned Rutledge’s “Minding the Store” bevker Don Wayne’s “Room Service”, are simplified and practically duplicated using a clever principle. Two spectator’s are laughingly “hypnotized” into believing they are the world’s greatest losers.
Despite some very fair bwcker and dealing, the performer wins every hand and correctly predicts the outcome of the final hand. The ingenious principle of Larry’s early commercial success, “Hare Mail” is transformed into one of mentalism’s most lethal weapons.
Two outstanding uses are stujners, “Pre-Vue” and “Switcheroo. Sthnners unpublished, easily executed sleight that enables you to cleanly force a playing card even though the spectator’s choice is extremely fair. An entertaining routine using the well known sound effects device widely sold in variety and novelty shops. Lee Earle modernizes “Bank Nite” with an ingenious method you’ll love to use.
The performer correctly and cleanly predicts the outcome of three games of chance, Roulette, Black Jack and Craps. Stunnerz unpublished effect inspired by David Copperfield’s “Blackboard Illusion. Richard Osterlind’s clever adaptation of Larry Becker’s “Some Total” designed for radio talk show use. A zany prediction woven into a tale about the deadly Borgia family.

Two highly entertaining presentations that share a not-so-common principle. One of Larry Becker’s most diabolic ideas. A second look at one of the finest mental card effects ever to appear in the International Brotherhood of Magician’s fine publication, Linking Ring.
The Howard Hughes Headline Prediction: An outrageous concept for the “Headline Prediction” effect with more twists, turns, and laughs than you can imagine. A baffling variation of the Koran Gold Medallion effect using a cardboard carton and a xtunners box. Larry Becker’s umpteenth improvement on his first commercial success. The definitive effort that finally puts an end to the “Psycho” saga. A baffling mental coin effect with an extra added “attraction.
A very entertaining routine constructed around television’s popular “The Price is Right” television show. The unbelievable “Headline Prediction” that baffled over magicians and mentalists throughout England and Europe. The Nostradamus Prediction Chest: A newspaper headline is predicted on a signed, audio cassette locked inside two nesting chests retained by a dignitary.
No electronics or switching. The cassette the spectator removes from the chest is the one he actually signed and locked inside days or weeks earlier.
Three different presentations are included. A common card “move” becomes an excellent and effective mental card force. The improved version of Larry’s original divination of a thought of digit in the serial number on a dollar bill. The age old “clock” principle is elevated to mental miracle status with two outstanding stand-up presentations, “Mind Mirror” and “Cardology. One is light entertainment and the other a more serious presentation. Three volunteers randomly create a “phantom serial number” by calling off digits from three freely selected dollar bills.
A unique principle that enables you to duplicate paper beckwr, legally, to achieve an uncanny display of “teleportation.
