Will to Read

Have the ability to predict the actions your spectator is about to take!

Steve Dela has created a powerful piece of mentalism that fits neatly into your wallet.

Will to Read contains two powerful "mind reading" effects. Combine them together and you can produce a full "hard hitting" routine. Now add your BIP Book and you have an entire act!

Three objects (pen, card and coin) are placed on a table.
Your spectator places one in their pocket, keeps hold of another and passes one to you.
Even though every decision is super fair, you proceed to reveal, that, the exact location of each object has been previously predicted ahead of time within the "torn out page" of a book.

If that wasn't enough, you can then ask your spectator to simply think of ANY word from either side of the page. Then, with NO questions asked, you can start to reveal it letter by letter. Once they confirm the 4th letter in a row, you proceed to tell them the entire word!

- The torn out page can be in full view the entire time
- No switches necessary
- Spectator can hold the prediction
- Every choice is super fair
- Always 100% correct
- No flaps, just one piece of paper
- No moving parts, nothing to break
- Fits neatly into your everyday wallet
- Everything is included to perform straight away
- BONUS... includes "All About Eve" (1 page book test)
- BONUS... BIP Book reveals also built in!

Comes complete with:
- Custom designed and printed gimmicks
- Full "in depth" training DVD, complete with routines, handlings and variations by Steve Dela and Peter Nardi

Say whut?! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 21st, 2016
To the people giving this less then 5 stars...huh?!
I've spent tons of $$ on BT, (including All About Eve, which you already know how to approach, if you own this) and this is good. Really good. As everyone seems to agree, Peter Nardi has a slick handling. I'd suggest that people research this on the Cafe. You'll get more than enough info., and can make a more informed decision.
I've been burned before, but this is one that balances those times out. I'm a bit torn even promoting this, but they deserve the sales.

Highly recommended.

I'm never leaving home without it!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2016
I purchased this on another website and it is absolutely brilliant!! You have a logical Free Will effect, a mini book test (word revelation), as well as an extra reveal for the Bip Book 2.0. The best part is that it all fits in your wallet! I'm a collector of mentalism effects that fit in your wallet, and this is easily in my top 3. If you pair this with the Bip Book, you have a full show that can involve 1-7 people and play for A LOT more. It also comes with a couple of different handlings and gimmicks, so you can choose what works best for you, as well as a couple of other extra little goodies. This really is a worker and I HIGHLY recommend it!

Practical and Impressive !! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 13th, 2017
One of the most important features of a trick is it's practicality.Will to Read is very practical and it is getting very good reaction.I always carry it in my wallet.If you want impromptu mentalism, this trick is exactly for you.
The bonus effect is very successful.I love it. When two routines join, the effect is growing. Peter Nardi's routine is perfect if you have the time.Steve Dela's routine is faster and effortless.According to the situation, the two routines are impressive.It's up to you.
Training DVD is descriptive and detailed.Everything you need is in the dvd.There are so many beautiful things in this set.I would recommend anyone who likes mentalism!

Amazing Pocket Mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2016
The effect itself is killer. I was introduced with the Free Will effect with Steve Hayne's Fair Play. I loved it but I was forced to carry the gimmick (and the gimmick may sometimes fail, not to mention the rest). Will To Read is a more reliable option for me. It packs flat, plays big plus you can do the All About Eve book test if you want to extend your routine.
The DVD that comes with it is well produced. The main menu has 3 options to choose from and is easy to navigate. Steve Dela's routine is simple and direct (my preferred method. Peter Nardi's routine is the longer routine that involves the All About Eve book test. Steve Dela's teaching is easy to understand. Peter Nardi on the other hand talks too much and sometimes makes me confused. I know that his goal is to give you as much information as possible but sometimes he gives ideas that are all over the place. Steve Dela's teaching involves simple mnemonics that are easy to remember.
The package comes with everything that you need to perform the effect out of the box (no arts and crafts needed).
Highly recommended!

BUY THIS NOW!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 6th, 2020
By far one of the best pieces of Pocket Mentalism you can own and a great value by including the Cambridge Card and All About Eve book test. With a little memorization you can really fry them. It’s not required, but I also recommend adding a Swami to get the first letter and it becomes BULLETPROOF! I use the Cambridge Card now as a perfect opening for other mentalism routines as well because it’s a perfect demonstration of how the human brain works and you can then go into almost any routine from there. EXCELLENT BUY!

AMAZED MY PATIENTS Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 13th, 2016
I have a private practice in Audiology, entitled "Magic Audiology".

As is evident from the title I perform tricks that will hopefully amaze my patients. BTW, people are often nervous and anxious about getting their hearing assessed-- However an amazing illusion or trick will put them in the mood I want.

"Will to Read" has been ideal for this purpose. Folks flip when theit actions are perfectly predicted on a page torn out from a novel. In short...Get this trick!

This is a masterpiece with really no way to track back the method. In short...

A five minute impromptu mentalism act in your wallet! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 7th, 2016
This is impromptu and fits in your wallet ready to go. You can do a book test with this where she freely chooses a word from the page. Then you can go into a Free Will routine with the one page you have in front of them the whole time. To me, this is the best and most reliable version of Free Will for me. It can't fail; I have had a couple of other free will tricks that failed on me due to technical reasons but this one will always work. There is another way to do the free will routine that ends much cleaner, so it's up to you how to do it depending on the situation you're in, whether it's a casual get together, or table hopping. Also, thank you , Alakazam, for providing spares. I wish all products came with spares.

PRACTICAL AND WORKING MATERIAL!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2016
One of the best tool I've ever bought for street mentalism. I will cary it with me in my wallet forever. There are so many different applications and ideas that I'm really surprise. You can do an entire 45 minutes act with this simple tool. BRILLIANT. AS always Alakazam is the best. 10 Stars!!!!!

NOTHING TOO SPECIAL Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 13th, 2016
For the fans of the free will principle, this is just a slightly enhanced version.

The routine that is "cooler" than the rest is Nardi's spin on the effect. Simple, direct, true to form.

IS IT A MUST HAVE- it depends and how much you liked the free will effect. Yes this is a step up, but its not the best version of this effect.

DVD and included gimmicks are simple,clean and direct. The price point could have been a bit lower (maybe a direct download in place of the DVD).

If you are new to the FREE WILL principle, than this may be just what you are looking for.

ok but not great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 26th, 2016
If you like the original FREE WILL, odds are you will like this one better.

Three everyday items (pen, coin, card) they make free choices of items to keep and give away and you reveal showing THEIR CHOICES ALL PRINTED in a page from a book.

There are a couple of handlings and even a word aka book test type of trick as a bonus.

You also get a couple of envelopes, special card and the DVD is packed with clear tips.

Nothing too revolutionary here, a simple twist of an old classic effect.
