Actually, there are hundreds of thousands of words inside these full color, perfect bound, soft covers – and when your participant selects one it is instantly known to you. Been there, done that; what’s new?
Behold: One Thousand Words mimics the popular Fodor or Frommer’s style Tourist Guides familiar to anyone who has visited the Travel section of a bookstore and offers so much more.
As your participant opens this pocketable 4 x 7.5 inch, 160-page, full color travel guide his eyes will fall not only upon pages full of text describing scores of tourist attractions across the United States but also upon spectacular photographs of those locations and destinations.
Every page is unique – with no duplicated photos, no repeated blocks of text, no replicated subject matter. While the book is not intended to serve as an actual guidebook, all of the data about museums, amusements, hotels, cities, buildings, capitols, national parks, etc., has been double-checked for accuracy.
However, it’s those incredible photographs that set One Thousand Words apart from mere ‘think of a word’ book tests because every picture can be the target for your demonstrations of uncanny mental skills.
Start with a word from the pages of the opened book your participant holds and then go further to work with photos on that 2-page spread. Or, have another person select a different place in the book and continue with the unseen photos residing there. Verbally describe their specific content or sketch it on a pad.
You can describe, with 100% accuracy, incredible detail in selected photos. Instantly, with no cribs, and certainly without agonizing memorization, you can reveal distinct, precise attributes within those pictures, which will instantly be verified as your participants look on. All from freely selected pages!
One Thousand Words very closely resembles the real guidebooks but has built-in, subtle edits that enable your miracles. These clever modifications are designed to withstand casual observation while the book is in your participants’ hands but it is a performance prop, after all. Still, if you are comfortable with any of the earlier products Lee Earle has produced (Final Flashback, The Himelrick Maneuver, Double Vision, Urania, etc.) you’ll be right at home, because One Thousand Words is simple – and simply sensational!
You can start using One Thousand Words moments after you read the easy, never-misplaced instructions that are printed in the back pages of the book (you can easily remove those pages if you wish – but why?). Go over the instructions one more time, invest an evening browsing through the pages, and you’ll be primed to unleash even more of its awesome potential. The instructions tell you how.
One Thousand Words can be purchased from your favorite dealer, starting this April.
Don’t settle for spelling out just a random term or two – when a picture is worth One Thousand Words.
