Worth every penny.
I've been using it in a routine combined with UF and Final Exam. It's a mentalism tour de force!

Sounds like the guy in the demo shop had no business demonstrating this book test, he should stick to penny through rubber.

I don't have it. A friend of mine in this area does, and he taught it to me. I don't want to compete with him now on it as it's his pet trick.

That said, I think it's better than any other test if you are worried about conditions and tough audiences. I've seen it fool the most cynical of people. That's partly my friend (David Hemmelrick's) showmanship, but it is the most bullet proof I've seen. I've seen David do it close up and on a platform. On the other hand, the cheaper book tests may be what you need for another situation. I just think MOABT is safer.

Stephan, that your good buddy cares not for ethics.

MOABT is safer than what?

I didn't like it , neither did my girlfriend.
Boring, a bit repetitious and too many long words.

How can you call it great?

MOABT...I used it so much I got three copies, one as a reserve and two to give them a choice.

If you don't perform, it's too expensive...if you do, it's great.

There were two different versions, one hardback and one paper...different basic text but they were interchangeable, allowing a totally free choice. It didn't matter which one they chose. I can't be more specific w/o tipping it, but I'm sure you get what I mean.

No the MOABt has never been supplied with different covers. Unfortuneatly due to the advert it says three colour cover. it actually means a cover in three colours! and NOT three colour covers!!. It is hardback and comes with a comprehensive instructive booklet.

Would it be too much to ask what verbage is used in MOABT? It's these fine points which should separate it from the others. I'm not looking for method. I just want to know in detail how clean this book test is.

It's clean, you got to do one pump and that's an easy one...many ways to do it have been proposed and most come off squeeky clean. I never had a blink and used it as an early effect for the warm-up section for countless hypnotism shows.

I have two paperbacks and a hardcover...the paperbacks are identical and the hardcover has a different cover and title...the paperback is presented as a murder mystery and the hardcover more of a love story...the paperback I have is a dark green cover and the hardcover has a white dust jacket.

Still, this was many years ago...there may be just the one version out now...you would have to contact Marc Sky to find out.

It is encouraging that Ian had the decency to point this out. I saw this description of the effect in an ad for the hardback version some time ago. Now, I already have the soft cover version, but I thought that here was an advantage of the hardback. But having been burnt SO OFTEN with magic purchases (as have we all), I now look at magic ads with a special kind of analytical process: how can what the advertiser says be totally true, and yet be construed in a way to burn the livin' bejesus out of me and cause me to buy something worthless to me. I applied this approach to this ad, and concluded that it was not three separate covers, but one cover with three colors. Phew - dodged a bullet on that one.

It's a shame we have to be so on guard with magic purchases, even where we should feel safe. It seems like a game: can the sellers word an ad such that they know will induce an incorrect reliance, but then be perfectly protected when their words can be interpreted differently. There ought to be a word for that.

The hardback version is of course the way to go. You get a book that is superior in quality and can take a beating if you perform regularly.

And of course you can change the cover on the hardback if you wish or you could purchase tweo or three and put different covers on them !!. (Just remember to buy from me! Smile

I've just bought the MOABT's and I'm really thrilled with it.
It's all I could wish for, and more.
Great item, and looking forward to working out a really nice, personal routine !

Hi,

For mentalists who mostly preform in front of german speaking audience, like me, there is a pendent of MOABT.
The effect ist really strong. In brief:
You can stand feets away, spectator can read a little in the book and then select ANY word he likes.

Immediately you are able to tell him what he is thinking about and even tell him the exact word.

It is said at the website that this german book test is limited until 2009 up to 200 pieces.
When I ordered mine shortly ago it was registered as #133.

Price is €133,- (about 119,-).

Check it out at: http://www.miracle-makers.de

Greetings
Thomas
Think positive and you'll see, how beautiful your life can be!
