The Blurb

Pi is an impossible memory effect. You show a small book in which the decimals of Pi are listed, and explain that you memorized it. The spectator opens the book at any page, tells you the page number, and you can tell him the first digits of the page!

Then you ask him to tell you a sequence of 5 digits, anywhere on any page. Starting from there, you start reciting the decimals of Pi! Actually, you recite so many decimals that the spectator has to turn pages to follow you!

Finally, you ask the spectator’s birthday, for example 14th of July. You then reveal the page, the line, and the position on the line where the sequence 1407 can be found in the book!

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
This incredibly unique book test is certainly not for everybody, as you must buy into the premise that there exists a book which lists the first 10,000 numbers of pi and that you have taken the trouble to memorizing about half of the book. But if this suits your style, then this intimate routine is quite original, powerful, and memorable.
