A great book test Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 12th, 2009
I recently purchased another book test that was much more expensive and required the use of an instant stooge, so I was a little skeptical when I picked this up. Boy, was I wrong! This is a great book test! Before I read the instructions, I thumbed through the book to see if I could catch the gaff (thinking if I could, so could a spectator). It took me about 5 minutes of seriously trying to finally catch what I was looking for, and even then it was only the tip of the iceberg! And who's going to let a spectator stare at the book that long?
Basically, you have them pick a page and they can read the first or last paragraph on that page and you can describe to them details of what they are reading. And then it can instantly be repeated on another page with very little fear of detection (if you control it correctly, there's NO chance of detection). The writing is genuinely from the real book, and the system you will have to learn to make this happen is the key. Don't get me wrong, you are looking at about 20 minutes to get it all down fairly good, so there is some work involved on your part. If you're willing to put forth the effort though, this is the one to use. It can stand fairly close scrutiny from the casual observer and it presents huge.

Pretty good Report this review

This is a pretty good book test. There are a number of different presentational ideas you can do with this. You can divine a word, a sentence, or draw a picture that matches a paragraph that the spectator is reading. The spectator has a free choice of the page, and you will still be able to divine whatever you like. The great part about this book test is that the book can be BRIEFLY examined (any longer than that, than the spectator might catch on). But with a quick glance and a riffle through the pages, everything appears legit and ordinary. The reason why I gave it only four stars instead of five is that there is a little bit of memorization involved.
