Book tests are as popular with mentalists as cut and restored rope tricks are with magicians. Finally, here is one that stands out from the rest.

Effect

The mentalist shows a little black book filled with nearly 100 different names and addresses of women. The mentalist gives it to a woman in the audience. She opens the book to any page and chooses one of the names on the pages. She shows it to a man and he also chooses a name from the open book.

The mentalist hands a sealed envelope to the woman to be explained later.

The mentalist starts with a single letter. He identifies a random letter and moves swiftly. Without fumbling or pumping, He correctly identifies the addresses, names, and phone numbers chosen by both parties! He even gives the zodiac signs.

Finally, The mentalist explains that he met with the same girl as chosen by the woman! In the envelope are three souvenirs from the previous night out, a cocktail napkin with lipstick print, a swizzle stick from a swanky night club and a matchbook cover. On the cover is written the same number as was selected by the woman!

A BONUS EFFECT

Later in the show, if the mentalist desires, he can know the zodiac sign of the woman who helped him. A simple, yet clever ploy allows for this information to be given without anyone knowing, all while the first effect is taking place.

The method based on two old principles, the first letter cue and specialty identifiers combined with a breakthrough system know as the grid means you can know everything without touching the book. It can be examined by anyone and there's never a force.

This is a book test that is fairly well-designed, and because of the premise, it has some logic to it. In other words, it doesn't seem odd to be carrying around an address book.

There are a couple of things to be aware of... you get no pre-made prop with this. You'll have to make it yourself. All you're getting is a manuscript that is a few pages long, along with an explanation of the cueing system and how to make a crib sheet, if you choose not to memorize it. I would say it's not worth the effort to memorize it, because his technique for this is very confusing and poorly explained, and it results in having to use names that are very odd, in order to fit into his system for memorization. You're better off using normal names and relying on a crib.

So for this reason, it's probably a good thing you have to write up the address book yourself, since you'd probably want to use a different set of names to make the list seem more normal. Let's face it, if you show someone a list of names that includes item like "Gimbya" and "Hemlata", it's going to draw all sorts of unnecessary scrutiny that you really don't want.

I can't see myself using this, but at the very least, it is a workable effect and the effect description seems pretty accurate.
