The new book test from Harvey Berg that simulates pure mindreading as closely as possible. Imagine handing your spectators one of several classic books familiar to all. The spectator reads silently to themselves from any page. From across the room or the stage, you begin to describe in considerable and growing detail the setting, the characters, the actions, the motivations and other incidentals in the passage they are reading.
Totally new method! The method actually delivers the information to you in chunks as if you wre receiving psychic impressions! Can be repeated with different descriptions of the readings given each time, with the same or different volunteers. No heavy memorization! You can perform this if you can do even the most basic of mental effects. Flexible staging. Intimate close-up or on the big stage. No other props or electronics are involved, just the books. No pre-show work. No accomplices. Nothing is prearranged. No sleight of hand. There is nothing to do except talk to people. No forcing of pages or page range, no equivocating or fishing. The books remain in the hands of the audience and can be thoroughly examined. No repeated passages or pages. Your descriptions will be in considerable detail. Readings will always be different, and may include some event that has taken place, the thoughts of one of the book's characters, descriptions, names of characters, dialogue, or whatever would normally be found reading a few lines of a book.
