Product Description

Shawn Farquhar, FISM Grand Prix World Champion of Magic, performs and explains in detail an effect that has been used in his show since 2011 when he presented it at the famed 4F convention in New York. This has been described as the "paper balls over the head" of mentalism. It's the perfect piece for mentalist looking to lighten the mood, magicians wanting to present mentalism and even master of ceremonies wanting to spice up the event with a little audience interaction.

You and a spectator stand back to back while they freely select any page from the book. Then with absolutely no effort you are able to recite word for word any sentences, paragraphs or even a whole page that is selected.

During the entire demonstration the audience see just how the "magic" works. Once revealed to the volunteer you will stun everyone by showing them the solution they thought was being used... isn't it at all.

This book test is pricey, but if you are looking for a good light-hearted comedy book test with a killer kicker at the end, this is it.

There are very few book tests with a comedy premise built into the routine. This is possibly the best out there.

This is one of only three book tests that I perform. They are:
1. This one
2. Word in a Million - Mark Mason
3. Lunatic - Outlaw Magic


The product is well made and the instruction is very good. Shawn not only really thought this one through, but has refined it in many performances. The only caution I would have, is that in my humble opinion, I think you need a good set up for the routine to make it INEXPLICABLE in the minds of your spectators when you get to the kicker ending. What you don't see in the DVD is how Shawn incorporates this routine into a full set. Even though it comes across as light hearted humor, you want the strong magical ending to play big, and I think a good set up will do so. ... [Read More]
