Dracula Book Test by Alexander Black and Troy Cherry An unsurpassable stage, parlor, and even close-up book test! Highly recommended!
Out of stock.
Real Book, Perfect Bound, Real ISBN, 440 pages. Clever gaff is hidden into the book itself. Unlike other fake books, this title is immediately recognized around the world!
Not all book tests are created equal. Without the directions, you and your audience will have one thing in common--you'll both be stumped!
And as if this wasn't enough, The Dracula Book Test is affordable! It is a mentalist's dream come true. A wonderful classic effect with a whole new look and feel. This is your chance to create miracles. Imagine this: A participant is freely chosen from the audience. She is in no way a prearranged confederate, or for that matter, a spontaneous stooge. The participant is ushered onto stage with applause. She is utterly unprepared for the astonishment that she will soon encounter and the wonderment she will experience as you read her mind.
The eager participant is given the opportunity to choose a book from among others placed on a table. It is then shown to the audience--one, two, or even six people get the chance to handle and examine the book to prove that it is real; it easily passes close-up examination 100% of the time.
Its authenticity is undeniable because it is a classic well-known title in circulation throughout the world.
You are then blindfolded and without any obvious means whatsoever, you read her mind and reveal the word. But wait, you have her pick yet another page--just to be sure, and then you name that word too!
Once again, there can be free choice of page number at every stage. There are no prearranged confederates or spontaneous stooges. You don't need an assistant. There are no cribs; no complicated anagrams; no reflectors or mirrors; and no electronics. It's very easy to use!

I have preformed this twice and it was perfect! The only thing i have trouble with is what if the spectator wants to see the book after?

A very easy book test for beginners Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 6th, 2006
I just purchased it a week ago and after I watched the instructional video, I am fully satisfied. Firstly, I have to say that the instructional booklet is really informative and will answer all the questions that you have raised. Tips contained inside are also useful. Secondly, for the instructional video, Morgan explained it fantastically and also giving his own tips for doing this book test. Thirdly for the product itself, the book is well-printed and with the cover, title and even ths ISBN, it really looked like a real book that you have just purchased from a nearby book store.
Finally, I would recommend this book-test to all beginners. Although I have to say that this book test really needed some practice but the secret behind it is always easy to master and most probably, you won't find any problems.
"Dracula Book Test by Alexander Black and Troy Cherry" - a really wonderful book test, probably the easiest to master and the most ingenious method also.
Definitely worth the price, you won't be able to find it anywhere else on the internet with such a low price, add to cart now!
(p.s. I also recommend it as an effect peformed at school

For a gimmicked book, this is not bad Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 10th, 2010
I am generally not a fan of gimmicked book tests as there are so many good methods for ordinary books. However, the book in this case can be BRIEFLY examined by the participant, the word choices are good, and the theme of Dracula fits well for a mentalist. The book is well known, so as not to raise suspician the way the unknown titles in so many others do. If you are going to use a gimmicked book, this one is solid. One note: This would be better as a hardcover.
Can't recommend it Report this review

Let's face it, there are so many book tests out there, there's no reason to spend money on one that you think has a severe shortcoming. The shortcoming on this one is that the book can't be examined. Sure, no one's forcing you to let the spectators handle the book afterwards, but if you CAN get booktests in which the method is completely invisible, allows you to accomplish the same effect and get the same reactions, why would you knowingly choose this one?
Nicely made gimmick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 7th, 2008
This is a very well done gimmicked book. A few moments to learn and with showmanship a beautifully designed book test.
The book can be fully examined before the effect and will most likely never raise suspicion. A tip I use to lend legitimacy to the book itself that is subtle and many will say unnecessary, "Some bookstores have price tags that are large and say the name of the book, price and store name. I bought a copy of dracula and carefully peeled the tag off the store bought book, and applied this over the barcode/black magic imprint on the back. Completely unnecessary I know, but in my mind it added to the idea that the book is genuine and helped hide the word magic which I found slightly obtrusive."
You will enjoy performing this, it is easy, very deceptive and I have never failed to get great reactions when I use this. A great trick to practice build-up and showmanship skills and perfect for the false memory implants in spectator minds after the fact.
Very Nice Report this review

This is an absolutly fabulous effect, I can't recommend it enough. The book is 100% examinable and the work is easy to remember. Even after the effect the spectator can have a quick flick through, although don't let them steadily look through it!
It's A Big Hit! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 12th, 2007
I performed this effect last week, and it blew people away. It is very powerful mentalism, and the best thing about it is that it's super easy. All you have to do is work on your presentation. When an effect does all that for you, what more can you ask for? Nothing, but applause. Add it to your cart. You wont regret it.
