This is one of the best effects released in 2012. Hard hitting, easy to learn. The magazines
themselves are very well designed and appear to be typical business/news type magazines.
There are multiple easy ways to get what you need, some quite innovative. Glance will hit your
spectators right between the eyes!
I do recommend replacing the covers. Don't follow the
advice in the instructions on replacing a cover by re-inserting the staples! Simply go to your local
Fed/Ed office (kinkos) and ask to borron their long stapler... and voila, staple away and your mag
will be rebound perfectly. The "Economist" magazine is a perfect size - time or Newsweek are a
little less ideal as you will need to trim the Glance magazine a little.
Overall Glance is
just powerful as anything, and far better than ANY magazine test I have yet encountered, highest

This is a great product! The quality and packaging of the magazines were fantastic, and worthy of
the price tag. Like all other reviewers, I think this is a great routine, and sure to stump alot of
However, I think it needs to be said that you CAN'T choose ANY word. And if the
spectators were to spend a little more time picking a word from the text, they might be able to
figure that something is wrong.
So it's the magician's job to manage them and not give them too
much time to scrutinize the text.
Also, you probably can't do this on the same person,
twice. (at least within a certain period of time)
Nuff said. Good stuff.

Just BUY THESE!
I'd honestly prefer very few people buy these to keep them exclusive to a
few. But if you are looking at this review, then it probably means you are considering the purchase.
This is by far my favorite release of 2012! They are excellent, and powerful. And the
price?!? COME ON!! A steal of a deal!

This mentalism routine is over the top. It is really that good. In my shows I also use some very
high end electronics, this gets the same results without having to spend thousands. It's organic
mentalism at it's best. Everything looks natural and ungimmicked.
This is my first book test so I cannot compare it to others however I can say that its incredibly
easy to learn and gets incredible reactions. The price seemed a bit steep however it seems
worthwhile. My only complaint would probably be that I don't think the magazines will last all that
long especially if you carry them around often. Great effect, great trick!
My sister is the toughest critic I have. She has figured out many of my mentalism effects. However,
this is the one that stumped her! She had NO IDEA how I did it. These gimmicks are so versatile and
well made! Purchase this as soon as possible to stump your toughest critics!Definitely a 5 out of
This appears to be real mind reading. Last weekend I performed this in front of about 60 people.
My wife, who assists me has never seen me perform "Glance". She knows how similar methods work but
not this one. When the effect was over, the look on her face was priceless. It was a crowd pleaser
and impressed my wife too. Glance stays in my act for good!
amazing what you get for such a low price. i mean...it depends how you look at this. cons: youre
paying $50 for two magazines. pros: your paying 50 for two really well done and designed
magazines. i mean, i bought "tru test" which is $100 and you get only one pg(technically you get a
bunch of copies of only one page).
i used this already and it was super easy. picked it up
in about 10min but, you gotta work on the presentation and the reveal though. put some real thought
into it. this thing is great i gotta say. this is going straight into the mentalism suitcase.
