Ultra-direct mind reading. So clean, spectators will swear you're able to reach into their heads and discern their innermost thoughts! The magician asks a spectator to think of any of the 52 cards. There is no force of ANY kind. The choice is completely free. Next, the magician shows four cards to the spectator.
