The Coolest Book Test Ever is more than just one book test. It is DOZENS of book tests wrapped into one seriously potent mentalism weapon.

You can literally present it and perform it so many ways its impossible to tell you all the ways in just a few moments.

I'll try~!

You can do it ONE on one. For a small group. For a group of 40. For a group of thousands!!!

You won't have to ever memorize anything ever!!!

It is a tool that allows you present the classics of mind reading like Telepathy, Remote Viewing, Design Duplication, Prediction, Direct Mind Reading, Clairvoyance, Coincidence and ON and ON!!!

Here are just a few examples....

Direct Mind Reading
They choose a book and a page at random. You ask them to read a line or two from the page and as they do from across the room you slowly start to reveal details until its obvious that you are reading their mind!!!

Tossed OUT Book
You can toss the book to anyone and after choosing a random page and reading a line they can hand it to another person who turns the page and reads the first line or two and then that person passes it on....and so on. After 3 or 4 people have read lines from the book you can immediately reveal all of their thoughts in a stunning crescendo of impossible revelations.

Perform it as an example of Tepepathic powers. They look at a page of their choosing at random. You immediately start to describe in great detail the sentence they are reading!!!

Visual Revelation
They choose and page. Completely free choice. You close your eyes and ask them to visualize the object. You snap your fingers, open your eyes and quickly sketch a drawing on the back of a business card. They read the sentence out loud and it says "he was being chased by a swarm of bees....". The business card is turned over to reveal a sketch of a giant BEE!!!

Design Duplication
Once again any page either book. They read a sentence in their head to themselves. You ask them if they could DRAW a simple picture to represent what they just read. They do and you now stand back to back in the classic Design Duplication pose both sketching a drawing. Of course both drawings are displayed and both drawings match..... for a strong and visual climax.

Coffee Shop
While having a coffee or just out and about. You can perform this miracle with ANY borrowed book. Just trade books with the spectator. You can now obviously reveal the thoughts of any page they read from!!! But here is the BEST PART. you can now reveal details from THEIR book that there is NO way you could have known.

Cell Hell
You can perform this over the phone! Ask them to select a page at random and they are to read a line or two as soon as you leave the room. Moments later you CALL them and tell them exactly what they are thinking.

Annemann Updated
Kranzo built a bonus principle into these book tests from the mind of Ted Annemann that has been used brilliantly by modern mentalists like by Bob Cassidy. Perform the CLEANEST book test where you never touch the books. And its so easy.

And thats not all!!! There are bonus ideas and routines that are taught on the DVD that we can't even tip here!!!


What you'll receive

  • TWO books

  • An instructional DVD which provides detailed instructions as well as multiple routines


A bonus principle is built into both books which will allow for some devious presentations.

The coolest book test Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 10th, 2013
Ok, I got this to expand my selection of available book tests, largely because I perform annually for a couple of the same groups and don't want to re-perform the same test for the same group too soon. I also have Kranzo's Tru-Test magazine test, and my favorite by far is MOAB 2.0. In general, this test is good, given the right presentation. I like the fact that two books are provided, so the spectators can choose either -- or both -- with no equivocation. In my mind, it's not at the same level as something like MOAB 2.0, but it can provide a somewhat similar effect for most people's minds. The only real criticism I have is that while the books look good superficially, a closer inspection shows design and quality shortcomings. Since I have experience in editing, printing and binding books, maybe these will only occur to me, but the binding method for both my books has poor quality control -- the trimmed margins are extremely narrow and vary widely, especially in the larger book, and the cover of the smaller book is misplaced, offset so that part of the back cover wraps around onto the spine -- some of the words on the back almost run on to the spine as well. Finally, unlike a real book, there is NO copyright page, no contents, none of the expected pages that are at the front of ALL published books. While it's unlikely that anyone will notice this with proper routining and audience management, it would be nice to have the books able to withstand closer inspection without a hint of strangeness to anyone, and it would be easy to remedy these shortcomings in a future release. The MOAB book, by contrast, is completely convincing in this regard, and of comparativly higher quality. MOAB is still the gold standard, with a lot more features built in, and of course, a far higher price. But this new test will probably be effective, particularly if a spectator who's seen me use MOAB before asks for another book test. I'd give this 4 stars, except for the quality issues I noted above.

Simple, extremely easy to use, yet really deceptive. The fact that two books are provide ads great value to the effect. I highly recommend this one.

I don't normally leave reviews.. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 1st, 2013
This book test is by far my favorite book test using gimmicked books to date excluding Moab. However, you can't compare the two because of the price difference. The fact that it comes with two books is also a huge plus.

What's great about this test is that you're not just revealing a single word. On a final note, both books look great and I mean they do look pretty freakin' awesome. However, they could use minor improvements for us OCD magicians who are looking at every little detail. While it's definitely not needed even with bad spectator management these books will fly under the radar without a doubt.

Among my favorite book tests Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 1st, 2015
I've owned most of the popular book tests and this one is among my favorites--right up there with MOABT and Babel.
Very clever and easy to do. Also, in my opinion, very under priced.

No forced pages! Very clever the way these are made! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 23rd, 2014
spectator can choose any page they want. There is a way you can have them choose a page and they don't name the page. there is another way they can use one of the books and a borrowed book. so many possibilities and the spectator can look through the book and will not be able to see/notice anything, no duplicate pages. Very clever method and so super easy! One minor quip I have is that just a few of the revelations are not so obvious, without giving too much away, but it's rare that that would be an issue. Very convincing mentalism and so easy to do! I just performed this at the local magic circle meeting, and people loved it. Great idea.
