I love trying to use open technology in mentalism. It's a challenge. But the ultimate goal is to make the technology seem irrelevant.


One of the great things about Prager's LIEBRARY is that it does NOT involve just a single book and is therefor suspect -- the participating spectator has a free choice of any of 8 ebooks as well as a free choice of page within the book giving it an air of legitimacy lacking when only a single book is in play.

A couple different possibilities, all depending on the situation and the spectator.

I have a book test I use on my iPhone -- spec can pick from any of a dozen books I've purchased from the iBook store. There's a reason built into the presentation of why I use these dozen book, so it prevents someone from saying "Do it again, buy use one of my books..."

I have another version that uses any written document someone has on their phone -- a text, and e-book, an e-mail. It's not as clean as the first book test, but it has the benefit of allowing me to use almost anything as the source.

I'm currently working on an effect where I send two spectators an e-mail, they each concentrate on a word from the e-mail, and it ends up they both are thinking of the same word. It's kind of like a digital version of Jack Tillar's Design Duplication.

Review : LIEbrary by J.Prager
from http://www.amirasideas.com



Jose is a creator from México. He has some products that in the past created a lot of controversy for lack of crediting and references for his ideas.

Lets forget all that and just focus now in this new offer from him that is also creating opinions from the community, but good ones now.

This product costs U$15 in
http://www.mentalshockproductions.com/



My opinion:

For 15 bucks you will receive a file that contains 8 different eBooks. Each eBook allows you to create one mindreading effect, for that reason if you want to repeat the effect , you need to use a different eBook.

The "explanation" eBook is just 2 pages long, and althought the methodology is super simple and easy the idea can be expanded and analyse in a more profound way.
This eBook works in iPhone ( from personal experience) and for that reason you can have hundreds of "normal" eBooks and be always ready to performr a eBook Test.

One criticism for the eBooks is the lack of covers. José knows very well how to do cool images and I think that this point is neccesary to indirect sell the idea that this eBooks are just that and not fake one.

Rate: 8,5/10

Althought the main principle is very old is a very nice mix of ideas that allows you to create mindreading without the use of apparent "magic apps".

Congratulations José!

I have just sent an update to all the LIEBRARY owners.

The eBooks now have a cover as my friend Pablo suggested.

:)

The new buyers will receive the plain text eBooks and the eBooks with cover design.

I have finished working in the covers.

They are beautiful and very real looking.

I am sending the eBooks with covers to the owners of LIEBRARY at this moment.

Great reviews from everyone! Thank you and please let me know your thoughts about the new covers.

Now I am going to drink some tequila! But before leaving... I want to give one LIEBRARY for free.

First one to PM me gets it!

As the others said this is a nice book test.

"Why?" you may ask...

For me it seems very useful because it works on my mobilephone which I carry around all the time. If for whatever reasons I want to do a book test hands off, I can take my mobilphone and just do that. Read a spectators mind!

You can do it EVERYWHERE where you can't find a book to do your regular ungimmicked book test! Normally - if a book is available - I would prefer to do my ungimmicked book test, a combination from several others, including David Hoys book test. But it is good to know that I have something to fall back on...

Currently - as english is not my native language and I prefer to do it with german ebooks - I am working in cooperation with José on a german version of this ebook test.

At the moment it seems as if my arranged ebooks will be available soon for everyone interested in german ebooks.

Like you, Decomposed, I was none too sure about ebook readers. But my wife got me a Sony one for Christmas and I was soon converted.

Not only will you be able to perform Liebrary on it - which is really worth having - but it allows you to catch up on some of the ebooks you may have but never got round to printing out or reading on screen.

I think you'll be well pleased.

Are the books used in the effect common public domain books? One of the biggest issues I have with book tests is justifying why I picked those specific books. If they are common public domain books, I can explain that I have them because they were free.

They are very common titles and I don't think you need any special justification for having them. Most are really well known and in the public domain.

All,

I just got this, as I also just got an IPOD touch, and I immediately added this to it.

I have only performed it for a dear friend, and he liked it!

Comes in handy if you are out on the run and don't want to carry books around.

I really like the premise, and I like the way the covers look, as well as everything is so easy to understand.

Get this, as it is a good effec to add to your arsenal!

Alex
