A book test like no other! 

There are many book tests on the market, but NONE offer what Words Beyond a Book Test can do. This is EXACTLY what it looks like: an examinable book is opened to any page, and the spectator thinks of a word. WITHOUT any fishing - no first letter pump - NOTHING, you immediately are able to divine the word. The concept used here is different from other book tests on the market. It's dead simple, easy to learn, and easy to perform. There's no complicated procedure to remember, either, so you can keep it on a shelf at home and do it whenever anyone asks you to do something "impromptu." For theater work, the hangman presentation, in which you play a psychic game of hangman, translates beautifully to a huge stage. 

The book itself is casual and unassuming, and looks just like any mass paperback you might be reading at the time. 

When we look at book tests, we judge them based on just one aspect: how realistically does it simulate mindreading? If there is an unnatural procedure ("count to the third word on the fifth line"), it's out. If there is something that leads back to the method, ("Tell me what the first word is..."), it's out. But in Words Beyond a Book Test, the impression you leave the audience with is one of PURE mindreading. 

Includes gimmicked book and online instructions.

Is this really a "Review"?

Reads like an advertisement rather than a review.

I'd say the video gives a pretty thorough and balanced review, with positives and negatives.

I saw these guys demo the book test at the TRICS convention earlier in November. It's a very practical solution. I thought it was quite good.

Then surely a simple link would have been sufficient, rather than an advertisement.

To answer the question, Yes I did watch the video. I found it interesting, despite the market trader volume of the reviewer’s voice. It looks like a decent enough booktest; decent value, too. I thought as much when I received an email from Vanishing Inc last weekend.

There’s some performance bits and pieces to view there, which might help would-be purchasers come to a decision.
