Mother Of All Book Tests 2.0 (NEW 2023 Edition) - Softcover


The basic effect

A spectator is invited to take a readable and examinable book, open it to any page, and 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 on any page method. MOABT is so simple to perform, so direct, and so powerful. This is the book test a select group of professionals are using to amaze their audiences.

  • 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!

Soft cover version
Less weight, easier to carry with you. The text is 13-point size so the spectator can see it even in low lighting. Spacing (leading) of the lines is greater to provide more white space, making it easier for spectator to read.

New list of words
A different list of words than the MOABT-HC and MOABT-PE. All of which you can describe and/or do a drawing duplication.

No-pump handling of first letter.

Venue object revelation
Most of your performances take place in one of the following venues: auditorium, banquet hall, country club, home, nightclub, outdoors, restaurant, and for walk-around.

We’ve compiled a list of 225 common and uncommon objects found in these venues. When you arrive at the location, select the object you want to dramatically locate during your show.

A spectator “freely” selects a word (the object) from the book and concentrates. Incredibly, you are able to lead them to it in a dramatic fashion!

Reverse book test
In this mindblowing routine—created by Bob Baker—the spectator becomes the mindreader.

You open the book to a page, put your finger on a word, and tell the spectator you will attempt to mentally project that word to them.

They call out a word. You then show them the word that you are pointing at. They match!

Name game
In this effect, the spectator picks a word. You walk out into the audience, searching around.

Stopping at a woman, you then ask the spectator to call out what he is thinking. The word he is thinking of happens to be a person’s name, lets say ‘Mary.’

You ask the person you stopped at what her name is. It’s Mary!

The spectator focuses on a sentence that describes a series of actions. They hold onto your wrist as you walk into the audience and physically re-enact these thought-of steps

The book test that crosses over

Do you perform traditional magic? Book tests are mostly associated with mentalism. If you don’t perform mentalism, then you probably don’t use book tests.

MOABT 2.0 re-writes the rules. We’ve redefined the book test by including effects that can be used by magicians.

MOABT 2.0 makes possible new and inventive presentations for those who perform effects such as:

  • PK Touches
  • Card to Wallet
  • Ring Flite
  • Any Card, Any Number
  • Jackpot Coins
  • Stigmata
  • Ashes on Arm
  • Equivoque
  • Watch steal

... and over two dozen more magic effects involving cards, coins, cell phones, business cards, and everyday items

Included is Ted Karmilovich’s Killer Invisible Deck routine! A totally unique take on the standard effect with MOABT 2.0.

Non-traditional magic
Other effects in the book can be used for mentalism, bizarre magick, seances, mind control, and hypnosis.

Routines and tips
New routines, tips and performing techiniques are covered, that enable you to deliver maximum impact to your audiences.
