Now with A more traditional mass-paperback appearance and Readability enhancements!

A spectator is invited to take a readable and examinable book, open it to any page, and is invited to think of any word on that page.

The performer, without touching the book or approaching the spectator, reveals the word in the simplest, most startlingly direct  manner ever!  It truly has to be seen to be believed.

The ultimate any-word-onany-page method. MOABT is so simple to perform, so direct, and powerful. This is the book test a select  group of professionals are using to blow their audiences away.

  • Can be performed for an audience of one to one thousand.
  • Close up, walk-around, stage, radio and TV.
  • Anytime, anywhere.
  • All pages different.
  • Nothing written down.
  • No stooges, no preparation, no counting, no gimmicks, no angles, no prompters, no peeks, no glimpses, no  sleights, no anagrams, no forces, no short pages, NO KIDDING!


Less weight, easier to carry around. The text is 11-point size so you and the spectator can see it in low lighting. Spacing (leading)  of the lines is greater to provide more white space, making it easier for the spectator to read.

Larry Becker?s Flashback : Riffle the book and have them peek at the first word of the page. You instantly know what it is. Instead of repeating the word on the glimpsed (opposite) page, it uses an antonym principle.  In other words, if the spectator sees the  word ‘black’, you’ll see the word ‘white’.

Adrian Bint ploy :  Adrian Bint’s ‘no-pump’ handling of the first letter.

Blister effect:  Ted K.’s reputation-making blister effect. This is from his close-up set involving the use of MOABT-PE.


Q. What are the dimensions of the book?
A. Paperback size: 6.75 inches tall, 4.25 inches wide, 0.6 inches deep. Weight: 8 oz.

Q. Will MOABT 2.0 still be available for purchase?
A. Yes. It’s priced at $395.00

Q. I have MOABT 2.0. What are the benefits of owning both of them?
A. You now have two different sets of long words. This means you can involve twice as many people, and read twice as many  minds.  MOABT 2.0 is also tailored more to stage use with dozens of different effects and presentations.


Here is a clip from one of our customers (and seasoned performer) Steve Legg, performing the Mother of All Book Tests (regular sized version).  Thanks Steve for giving us permission to feature your performance!
