CHRISTMAS CAROL BOOK TEST

by

The Blurb

An incredibly simple and powerful book test for the professional or casual performer.

Here’s exactly what happens:
The performer riffles through the pages of the book.
The participant at any time, says stop and looks at the first word on the page.
The performer knows the word without asking a single question or having anything written down.

Highlights:
Nothing to memorize
No duplicate words
No questions asked
Nothing is written down
Completely examinable

Christmas Carol Book Test gives you the freedom to perform a powerful mind reading miracle, anywhere at any time, without the need to memorize a single thing. You can also hand out the book before, after, or during the performance without worries of revealing the secret. The method is so cleverly disguised and practically undetectable, even under close examination.

For over ten years, many of the world’s most talented magicians and mentalists have included Christmas Carol Book Test in their paying shows and performances.
The same method is also featured in Ted Karmilovich’s, Mother of All Book Tests – Pocket Edition.

4.25″ x 7″ paperback with 168 pages

(Original Blurb)
It is that time of the year again!

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is one of the all-time best selling classic books about the holiday season ever written and now, for the first time ever, it is also a professionally designed book test! Here’s the best part… it is TOTALLY readable from front to back; you’ll NEVER find the gaff. Yet, there it is, right in the text, on ever single page; powerful, simple, and immediately useable by novice and expert alike.

A spectator freely selects any page and you know the first word on the page. It’s that simple and direct. No questions asked and nothing is written down. There are no page forces and you never know the page number.

This is the perfect book test for walk around performances because there are only two steps; the spectator chooses the page and you divine the first word without hesitation. There is nothing to memorize and you don’t need any information from the spectator! There is no pumping, no forces, nothing.

A Christmas Carol is completely examinable before and after the performance and anyone can read the book from the beginning to end without ever finding the gaff. There are no duplicate prediction words and no gimmicks whatsoever; it is TOTALLY self-contained.

This is a complete mind reading effect that is ready to go with no set up and nothing to memorize right out of the package. You can repeat it as many times as you want!

Created by Josh Zandman and fleshed out and published by Black’s Magic. You will love carrying this little miracle around with you!

Pull it out of the package, take 30 seconds to skim over the instructions, and BANG… you can perform it to anyone, anywhere, anytime. It is one of the simplest but most powerful book tests ever invented.
