Mother of All Book Tests by Ted Karmilovich

(c. 1995) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Ted Karmilovich set a high standard with the 1996 publication of The Mother of All Book Tests as it was the first book to use the Long Word force throughout the entire book, rather than on a small set of pages. A participant can turn to any page in the book and think of any word, and the method can still be applied by the performer to a successful conclusion. Although the method was not new, the writing, overall design and production of the book was outstanding, so for many professional mentalists, it is their go-to Book Test.

Effect: MOABT – Everything you’ve heard is true. The most direct and astonishing book test I have ever seen. No need to know the page number. A spectator is invited to take a readable and 100% examinable, 280 pages, 160,000 word novel, open it to any page and think of a word on that page. Without touching the book or approaching the spectator, you reveal the word in the simplest, most startlingly direct manner ever! It truly must be seen to be believed. You never ask them the page number, you allow them to look anywhere on the page, they can change their mind right up to the time they send you the thought. Nothing to stare at, glance at, etc. Nothing extra is used. Only the book.

Mother Of All Book Tests is simple to perform, direct and powerful! It’s a true reputation maker as well as the mentalist’s dream come true for accomplishing this classic effect. It has proven to be ideal under every type of working condition. Worth thousands to the working professional.
