The Mother Of All Book Tests set the standard for book tests, a standard that remains even years later.
Imagine the surprises found in Version 2.0. This could be the last word in book tests. Rocking the world of mentalism, again.
A spectator is invited to take a readable and examinable book, open it to any page, and is invited to think of any word on that page.
The performer, without touching the book or approaching the spectator, reveals the word in the simplest, most startlingly direct manner ever! It truly has to be seen to be believed.
The ultimate any-word-on-any-page method. Mother Of All Book Tests is so simple to perform, so direct, and powerful. This is the book test a select group of professionals are using to blow their audiences away.
Can be performed for an audience of one to one thousand.
Close up, walk-around, stage, radio and TV.
Anytime, anywhere All pages different Nothing written down No stooges, instant or otherwise
Less weight, easier to carry around. The text is 13-point size so the spec- tator can see it even in low lighting. Spacing of the lines is greater to provide more white space, making it easier for spectator to read.
New list of words
A different list of words than Mother of All Book Tests 1.0. All of which you can describe and/or duplicate. If you own version 1.0, you can now use 1.0 and 2.0. Hand them both out.

Venue object revelation
Most of your performances take place in one of the following venues:
Auditorium, banquet hall, country club, home, niteclub, outdoors, restaurant, walk-around.
We have compiled a list of 225 common and uncommon objects that can be found in these venues. When you arrive at the location, you select the object you want to dramatically locate during your show.
A spectator “freely” selects a word (the object) from the book and concentrates. Incredibly, you are able to lead them to it in a dramatic fashion!
Reverse book test
In this mindblowing routine – created by Bob Baker – the spectator becomes the mindreader.
You open the book to a page, put your finger on a word, and tell the spectator you will attempt to mentally project that word to them.
They call out a word. You then show them the word that you are pointing at.
In this effect, the spectator picks a word. You walk out into the audience, searching around.
Stopping at a woman, you then ask the spectator to call out what he is thinking. The word he is thinking of happens to be a person’s name, lets say ‘Mary.’
You ask the person you stopped at what her name is. It’s Mary!
The spectator focuses on a sentence that describes a series of actions. They hold onto your wrist as you walk into the audience and physically re-enact these thought-of steps!
No preparation. No gimmicks. No prompters. No glimpses. No anagrams. No short pages.
No counting. No angles. No peeks. No sleights No forces.
The Book Test That Crosses Over
Do you perform traditional magic? Book tests are mostly associated with mentalism. If you don’t perform mentalism, then you probably don’t use book tests. Mother Of All Book Tests 2.0 re-writes the rules. We’ve redefined the book test by including effects that can be used by magicians.
New and inventive presentations for those who perform effects such as:
Card to Wallet
Any Card, Any Number
Ashes on Arm
