This is a nice piece for mental magic. I have had some fun using this on some of my friends that are religious and they have no idea of how it is done. It is worth the money in my opinion.

I didn't know what to expect from such an ancient work. The prop, a book with drawings of saints, is gorgeous. It looks great. And the method behind figuring out which saint the spectator picked is fairly ingenious, one that I hadn't seen in this form before. That said, I don't like the presentation in the instructions. If you do it as suggested, you will tip the general method, even if your audience isn't quite sure about the details. If you take an idea from Leo Boudreau's book Skullduggery, you can do it perfectly, and you'll tip nothing. One other small point, the performance requires the spectator to find her selection on various pages. Since the saints aren't in alphabetical order, their names are often unusual, and the old-fashioned font isn't the easiest to read, finding the right saint is a challenge and could take time. Nevertheless, this is a nice purchase for historical/curio value and the right performance situation. And did I mention that the book is beautifully rendered? :) I like this a lot for the more esoteric mentalist.
