Introducing the Mother of All Book Tests – Pocket Edition
IMPORTANT: There are 3 different Versions of the MOABT. Scroll to VERY bottom of page to cross reference.
It has been two years since the successful release of Mother 2.0, and we are thrilled to announce the launch of the Mother of All Book Tests – Pocket Edition! Performers, whether professional or amateur, have been asking for a pocket-sized version of the Mother for their walk-around and on-the-go performances.
We are excited to reveal that this request has not only been fulfilled but has exceeded all expectations. Mentalists and magicians will be delighted to know that the Mother of All Book Tests-PE not only allows you to perform the classic Mother routines, but also includes Flashback, with the kind permission of Larry Becker! Imagine having two classic book tests in one portable, fully examinable book. Thanks to Josh Zandman’s collaboration, we have incorporated antonyms into the Flashback section of the book, adding an extra layer of subtlety for the discerning performer.
If you already own Mother 1.0 (hardcover “Fatal Sins”), there is nothing new to learn. The key words in MOABT-PE are the same as the original Mother. The Flashback antonyms have been carefully selected to require minimal thought and are, to put it simply, automatic. So now, mentalists and magicians who want to entertain their close-up audiences with a book test that conveniently slips inside a jacket pocket can do so. The text size is comfortably readable even in low-light settings, and the wider line spacing makes it easier for them to see the longer words.
Priced at just $199, the Mother of All Book Tests – Pocket Edition is within the range of working professionals who wish to purchase backup copies. This is an effect you will be using ALL the time, under any and all conditions. It’s perfect to take along when meeting with a new client or agent. Unlike the larger version of the Mother, which is ideal for stage performances, MOABT-PE is compact for strolling performers at cocktail hours, parties, and more. As with all our Mother releases, the Pocket Edition is produced with utmost quality and designed for day-to-day usage. As a bonus, we are including Ted K.’s reputation-making blister effect, a popular presentation in close-up settings. This blockbuster handling, which incorporates various blister routines and gimmicks, has been highly praised by Jack Kent Tillar, the original creator of the blister effect. We are confident you will love it too.
In this astounding routine, a spectator is invited to select a readable and examinable book, open it to any page, and think of any word on that page. Without touching the book or approaching the spectator, the performer reveals the word in the simplest, most direct manner ever! You have to see it to believe it.
This is the ultimate any word on any page method. MOABT is incredibly simple to perform, direct, and powerful. A select group of professionals are using it to amaze their audiences.
It 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!
The pocket-size paperback version is lighter and easier to carry around. The text is written in 11-point size, ensuring both you and the spectator can read it even in low-light settings. The greater spacing between lines provides more white space, making it easier for the spectator to read.
Larry Becker’s Flashback:
By riffling the book, you can have the spectator peek at the first word on the page, and you instantly know what it is. Instead of repeating the word on the opposite page, Flashback utilizes an antonym principle. For example, if the spectator sees the word ‘black,’ you’ll see the word ‘white.’
Adrian Bint ploy:
No-pump handling of the first letter.
Included in this set is Ted K.’s reputation-making blister effect, which can be performed using MOABT-PE.
- Q. What are the dimensions of the book?
A. Paperback size: 6.75 inches tall, 4.5 inches wide, 0.6 inches deep. Weight: 8 oz.
- Q. I have MOABT 2.0. What are the benefits of owning both 2.0 and PE?
A. You now have two sets of long words to work with. This means you can involve twice as many people and read twice as many minds. MOABT 2.0 offers a variety of effects and presentations tailored for stage use. On the other hand, MOABT-PE is designed for close-up and walkaround situations.
