Read every word carefully. Nothing has been left out. If the description fools you, you will be devastated by the effect.
A spectator is freely chosen, not a prearranged confederate or stooge. You walk to the other side of the stage and turn your back or are legitimately blindfolded. No peeking. The spectator is given an absolutely free choice of one of three paperback books. The spectator picks up any book, thinks of any page number, does not tell anyone the page number, writes nothing down, no force, and the spectator can change his mind as often as he wishes. The spectator opens the book to that page number and thinks of the first word on the page. With no pumping, nothing written, no letter by letter spelling, you name the word. The spectator thinks of any other page number, tells no one the page number, he can change his mind as often as he wishes, and turns to that page. The spectator looks at the last word on the page. You tell him the word he is looking at. The climax is beyond belief. The spectator thinks of any other page number, changes his or her mind as often as he or she wishes, tells no one, turns to that page, and is instructed to look at ANY OTHER WORD on the page. You do not know the page number. You read his mind and reveal the word he is staring at. No prearranged stooges or confederates. No peeks. No mirrors. No reflectors. No force of the book. Nothing written. Absolutely free choice of book and page number at every stage. No assistants. No electronics. No pumping. No progressive anagrams. No cribs. A streamlined version is also available which uses only one book. You do the first two phases as above. For the third phase, there is a prediction in an envelope that has been in full view since you started. You never go near the prediction. Any spectator opens the envelope. You never touch it. The spectator thinking of any other word on any page announces the word. The other spectator opens your prediction. In big bold letters, on a letter-size sheet of paper, is the word the spectator is thinking

I have to say this for the trick: the description is true...for the most part. There are no prearranged stooges or confederates, but if you pick the wrong person to do this with you, you're in trouble. You're actually setting up for an instant stooge, which is enough to steer most folks away. This is an effect that will amaze everyone else, but not the person you are doing it with, and that's what I don't like. While I'm the first to admit there's a time and place for this sort of thing, the Hoy Book Test is a much better choice and it allows the books to be examined at the end. Understand that this is a parlor or stage effect, and not an intimate piece of mind reading for one person.

For the price, this is far too expensive. If this was $15, I could see it being a great first book test for a beginner or comedy magician. But if you're going to spend this much money on a book test, go with the Dracula or War of the Worlds book tests.
