BAXT’s “Better” Book Test!
The Easy to Do, No Formulas to Memorize, No Pre-Show work, No Fishing!
A Book Test that uses POPULAR AND RECOGNIZABLE TITLES!
The classic mind reading routine, but done with authentic books that audiences know, making it super simple for any performer! Audience Tested, baffling, and a reputation maker! SEE THIS COMPLETELY UNEDITED PERFORMANCE THAT SHOWS EVERYTHING:
PAUL ROMHANY, Editor of the VANISH Magazine for Magicians said this: Your book test arrived and I want to say they are bloody fantastic!!! Why hasn’t anyone done this before -it’s so damn clever. As far as book tests go, this one ticks ALL the boxes. LOVE IT!! LEE EARLE’S THOUGHTS AT THE END ARE PRICELESS.
The magician and mindreader asks the audience how many thousands of words they think there are in a book, whatever the answer, he doubles that number by bringing out two books! Letting a spectator have a perfectly free choice of either book of the two (NO FORCE!), the mentalist asks that person to check the book and make sure it is a perfectly legitimate book. The spectator can examine it all they want and they will agree it is an ordinary book!
AVAILABLE IN THESE DIFFERENT BOOK SERIES (BUT THE EXACT TITLES IN THE SERIES MAY VARY!)
EXCERPT FROM THE GREAT REVIEW IN THE MAY 2019 ISSUE OF LINKING RING MAGAZINE:
EXCELLENT FOR SCHOOL SHOWS, LIBRARY SHOWS, AND YOUNG READERS!
Going to different random volunteers, the performer asks them to examine the second book that the first person did not choose. Again, this second person can examine it all they want and will confirm it is an ordinary book. The mindreader now asks this second person to choose any page number from their book, and this person can check to make sure that every page is indeed legitimately numbered differently, NO DUPLICATE PAGE NUMBERS. Once the page number is chosen, the magician asks the first person to turn to the corresponding page from their book, the one they have been holding and safeguarding all this time; and check it to make sure that the page number chosen is not a blank page, illustration page, or chapter heading page with just a number, etc. If the page in the first book does indeed have printed words on it, the mentalist can correctly predict the first or last words on that page.

BRETT BARRY’S (of SvenPad Fame) REVIEW: I just received a copy of Robert’s book test (Harry Potter edition) this past week and I am FLOORED. The execution here is simply exquisite. Wow. Wow. Wow. I mean you could go spend $$$$ hundreds on Brian Brushwood’s overpriced version (different method) – OR get THIS and smile at the even cooler easier METHOD and the method is far better IMO. The routining materials (along with advice from Lee Earle) is more than you will need to get started with this quickly. The method requires no memory work. The large size of these books means that it is most appropriate for cabaret or stage. Highly delicious and powerful in its simplicity of ingredients. Thank you Robert.
I received the”Hunger Games” version of Robert’s book test some weeks ago and was greatly impressed by its deceptiveness and ease of use. In fact, I was so impressed that I ordered a Harry Potter set to use as an adjunct to a Harry Potter-themed book test that I already perform. Robert went to extraordinary lengths to customize my editions for my purpose and the result was beyond my expectations. I performed it today for the first time for a small audience and it received a truly great response. I’ll be trying it on stage next month, and I am really looking forward to performing it. Robert is a true gentleman and genuinely cares about his customers’ needs. looking forward to using it this summer!! It is so simple and straightforward you really have nothing to do but perform! – Allan Karasavas, Australia
Robert…I just wanted to drop a line to thank you…I received the Better Book test, Harry Potter version and I love it. I don’t know why I never thought of it…you did all the work to prepare the books and all I have to do is present it…thank you again. -Russ Nowack
I am looking forward to using it this summer!! It is so simple and straightforward you really have nothing to do but perform! – T.J. Marlatt
Baxt has done all the hard work for you with this effect to make it easy, so you can walk out on stage 100% focused on entertaining. -Scott Alexander
If you like book tests, one with interaction and current books then this is a book test for you. No complicated systems or memory required so you can focus on the entertainment of your audience. -Paul Alberstat
This really is the only book test I do or would consider doing, the method allows you to reveal as little or as much as you like. -Adie Merritt
It’s brilliantly deceptive. I have fried several people with it. To me, it’s almost like bending metal. While you’re doing it you just can’t believe you’re getting away with what you’re doing. But is that simplicity that makes it impossibly good. -Andrew Nadon
Robert Baxt has assembled one of the surest and easiest book tests from the most popular books! The method is easy enough for a novice, deceptive enough to fool even ‘knowledgeable‘ magicians. -Kurt Freitag
“That’s what I like about the idea of these books – people know the titles or at least have heard of the movies” -Anthony Laffan
Imagine a room filled with people… you spy a stack of books and Robert tells you any book will do. You look at the book and think. That’s it… and Robert Baxt tells you what you just thought of. That’s the effect. But the entire audience is bamboozled. Baxt just plucks what you thought of out of thin air. It is that good. I have my own methods for book mentalism. But Robert’s is one that I’m adding. EVEN KNOWING how it is done… he still fooled me. -Christopher Faria
This book test is awesome! Simple and to the point with a surefire routine. I love my set. -Jim Hynd
I have bought a lot of book tests over the years but this is the best one by far. I have bought three sets! The Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight series. I use all 3 sets in my shows to give the audience their choice. It’s pure genius! -Steve Wesseler
