Strong enough to close the show of one of today’s leading mentalists. First performed by Al Koran, this book test looks like real mind reading. This is Astral Word.

Here’s what happens:

A member of your audience is allowed to look through a book and pick any page. They pick any word on that page and then write it down. You take the book back and instantly know the exact word they say. It’s that clean and that easy.

This simple to construct gimmick can be built into any book that fits your show. Richard Osterlind teaches everything you need to know about making Astral Word a real show stopper. There’s no fishing, narrow set of choices, or forcing. Any page. Any word. This is as direct a book test as it gets. This is Astral Word presented by Richard Osterlind.

Richard Osterlind is one of my heros and I love his work. But when I got this and watched his video, I first thought, hey, I already knew how this works . . . but even so, the little details and wonderful advice and useful hints and wonderful subtelties Richard provides makes this SO worthwhile and SO useful and SO magical. Thanks, Richard, for sharing all of this.

Amazing and Simple Report this review

I used to have a product similar to this that I bought at Tannen's decades ago. This version has many improved tweaks and better handling suggestions than I ever expected. Well worth the money.

Old low tech method Report this review

I love Ricard Odterlind's work. I really do. This trick? Not so much... The method is solid, sure, but is based on old low tech solution - that can be achieved easier and cleaner.

You need arts & crafts here, and the book is not fully examinable.

As an example, you can make an easier gimmicked book with Psypher, or even have an ungimmicked book with it, and still achieve the same result.

It also reminded me of the "Word in a million" Nicholas Einhorn method.

Osterlind is a great mentalist. This trick - not so great...

Greatest Book Test Ever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2020
This is a great book test. The effect itself isn't "new". However Richard Osterlind gives a great updated effect and wonderful handling.
With the proper handling this is an absolute killer!!

Astral World - Richard Osterllnd Report this review

I use this in my show and typically get gasps. The gimmick is easy to make and the versatility means that one can use literally any book. The method is very clever and elegant in its simplicity. While easy to perform, the theatrical element will take a clever trick to an artful piece of theatre.
Penguin has edited out a step in the performance - unfortunately. Not sure why. Still, you get the idea...

This is a powerful effect and I recommend it highly.

Astral always ready , very strong! Report this review

Free choice of words from any book. All the room in the world for presentation. Nothing for the audience to question or back track. I don't close w/ this I like to put it earlier in a performance it usually gives the skeptics a moment of awe.

I love this mentalism trick by Mr. Osterlind. I couldn't figure out how this was done so I downloaded it. You know there are some tricks that you buy and never do them, not this. This, I'll enjoy performing (just have to wait for one of the ingredients for this trick to arrive). Cant wait to show off my psychic talents :)
