The Mind Reading Coloring Book An incredible self contained mental miracle. The spectator turns to any page in the book and within seconds you know the image they're merely thinking of. Perfect for kids shows. Highly recommended!

Hand the book to a spectator, inform the spectator that some images have TEXT and some do not. Say "Let's keep things simple. Pick an image WITHOUT text and make sure that only you can see it. Concentrate, and study it " Wait a few seconds. Ask the spectator to close the book. Take the book and put it aside; maybe out of reach. At this point you can tell the spectator what image he or she is thinking of ! But wait there's more : now you can repeat the effect this time using an image WITH TEXT next to it , and the results are the same . You can even sketch your prediction in form of a word or illustration on a notepad. If you sketched something out, you can then ask the spectator what he or she is thinking, then reveal what's been written on the notepad! This makes for a stronger ending. : This is one of the few mentalism effects you can perform for children. There is nothing to memorize and all is self-contained.

When I learned the method, I was unimpressed and very concerned. It was very different than other book tests I have used. The method is far from fool-proof and is dependent on you observing your participant. Ironically, this is a children's book, but I have found the primary method works better on adults!5 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
I have performed this a couple dozen times now and have received mixed reactions. I will continue to perform this because I like the danger of failure with mentalism and I can sell it with presentation whether I succeed or fail. It's a mentalism trick, it's good show some failure sometimes.
Also, if you're not comfortable reading body language (which you WILL need to do if the primary method fails...which it probably will fail) then this is not for you.
2 stars since this is not as robust as many "standard" book tests and you can't turn your back on the spectator.
If you want a truly amazing, organic book test, I highly recommend you pony up the dough and buy Tru Test from Penguin. That is spectacular!

Be advised that this is not for adults, you can only use it for kids and even then some are too quick for this.4 of 5 magicians found this helpful.

This prop is great for doing in mixed crowds at events and parties.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
The first phase is having a picture selected and then revealed by magi.The second phase is having a word selected and then revealed by the magi.
So, have a kid do the first part and an adult do the second. It could even be their parent.

I really did not expect such a sophisticated book test when I initially purchased this, I thought that it would be good enough for kids and leave it at that. Well to my surprise, it plays extremely well to adults because of its simplicity! I must be the only hypnotist/mentalist that uses a coloring book in his act!!!
Nice alternative to the coloring book Report this review

This is a great way to add a coloring book/mentalism aspect to children's routine without using the easily identified magician's coloring book. The overall quality is pretty good.
This is good! Report this review

I like this, it's great! Kids will luv it, if you do kids shows! But I suggest mind reader wallet or mind controller if you want to do adult mentalism, I get huge reaction with mind reader wallet!
