Of Course being in mentalism for years, I have several different book tests, (and I am ashamed to
say that many have been a waste of money). But over a year ago, I saw this effect, and since I've
always been a Mark Mason fan, I thought that I couldn't go wrong, and I was right. I have bought
two other book tests since then, but I continue to use "Word in a Million." So, learn from me and
stop right here! It's one of the best!

Not any book, It has to be a book with a [edited to protect secret] on it. Other than that, super
trick, EZ to do. Add it to your cart!

This is a brilliant trick. It will fry your audience and leave them speechless. It is really all
that is advertised and more. You can take any book and have them pick any word off of any page-write
it down. You instantly know what the word is. Super easy. Fast reset. Infinate possiblities. For the
price, the best value at Penguin. Highly recommended!!!

I received this with "Booked" and "Glance" and it gets more use than the other two combined.
In the ad it states "Any" book. And this is true, until you perform.
It can be any book, but
if it has to be "any book" in performance, you may need to get more copies of this. Fortunately, it
is less expensive than many book tests already.
I use Neil Gaiman's "The Book of Magic" for
this, and it flies SO WELL!
Gaiman's writing. use of incredibly detailed words, and the
imagery make for a captivating prop.
And they can pick any word, describe any picture, or
any information from the book; and You will Know It.
So in the sense of performance, the
only negative I have is that I did not buy many more.
Once you have selected your "any" book,
it is rock solid for that book.
And if you are interested in BT's and do not want to enter
in the 150$-300$ range, this is an excellent start.

I've looked at so many book tests... Ones with cribs, memory systems, different glimpses and books
that make the glimpse easy. I have magazine tests and more.
Personally, I just really like
them. There's something nice about most of them but everything misses the point. "ANY" word being
used. So I always left the other methods for a billet and impression pads.
This method is
the one I've liked the MOST by far. It lets them have this full control feeling and it's great. The
best part? The peek to get the word is 100% natural and you get a FULL peek.
It's easily a
worker and the method I'm going to use the most for sure.

WOW... Ok... I had an idea of how this worked and I was right, but the method in which you use it is
so amazing! I clapped out loud for a minute straight at the tv. Very impressed.
very easy to learn and master. I practiced for an hour before trying it out on a 50th Anniversary
Party full of 200 people. Blew them away. It is almost angle proof as well and there are no moves
I wish we could rate things out of ten instead of 5.

This is great! Maybe like me you have spent $$ only to get a cheap gimmick with a method that
requires God and 4 Confederates to pull off. This is a brilliant & simple. Truly if I paid $100.00
for this I would not feel ripped off. Nicholas congratulations and thank you!

I honestly can't believe how awesome this is!
I am sure if I sat down with a bad attitude and
angry outlook on things, I could probably find a small list of cons. But the same could be said for
any trick. The thing about this one is, there are SO MANY PROS!
You can literally make
"your move" right in front of everyone.
Every eyeball in the house can be burning the
everloving hell out of you, from head to toe, and they still won't ever see anything unnatural.
This is a DO NOT MISS book test. (I have also discovered a few other wonderful uses for it, but
I am keeping them to myself. However, anyone with a creative mind will see what I mean when they ADD
THIS TO THEIR CART and get their mail.)
I pretty much sound like I work for the
company, or have been paid to promote it. But the reality is, this thing is just SO GOOD I had to
support it by saying so. (Even though I'd much rather keep it to myself.)

Not only was I impressed by this effect, but also by amount of time the author spends with you on
the DVD. He not only demonstrates the performance and provides a thorough explanation, but also adds
additional tips to help make the performance as smooth as possible.
The gimmick is very
simple to use and people at my office were spellbound when I revealed the word.
This one is

I like this. It's easy and works. I've always liked book tests but they always involve a system,
memorization, an expensive gaff, or an assistant. This is not expensive and very easy to perform.
Last, it allows you to work on the presentation. Well worth the money and a great trick!
