The Elementary Book Test by George Rumsey:

It uses 2 books,a Sherlock Holmes novel and a dictionary. Both can withstand stringent examination. The basic effect is that a word is remembered in the novel by participant 1, and the performer then tells participant 2 who has the dictionary to open it at page 362 for example.He/She is then instructed to look at the fourth entry in the first column and write the word he/she finds on a pad. The first participant is asked what word he/she is thinking of, and when the pad is turned around by participant 2, it matches the word written down!

The above is a very basic description. Depending on your persona, this can be a memory feat, it can be a test of Intuition, Synchronicity, or how about you say nothing at all and just perform it. Which ever option you choose, this book test WILL slay!
Don't just take my word for it. Our late friend, Bob Cassidy sent the following message to George upon receiving it;

The book test arrived! I played with it for a few days and it is excellent. I've never seen these particular methods combined this way and I like it a lot.

"There is no similarity to Al Mann's Lexicon Phenomena. Should you ever decide to release it commercially, I'd be happy to give it my highest recommendation. It is actually quite closer to the original book tests performed by mediums in the 19th Century than to anything else I've seen on the market today".

Richard Osterlind also received a copy and was equally as impressed.

George is only selling ten copies of his book test, mainly because he is finding it hard to source the dictionary.

He has only nine left, because Tony Razzano bought one yesterday. After seeing George perform it for him on Skype, he said the following;

"George's Elementary Book Test is very different from Larry Becker's Ultimate Flashback.And I believe it is better"!

I am not interested in hyping this. If the above quotes don't tell you how how this is, well then perhaps it is not for you.

Remember, if you buy, you will be one of the very few performing this. As of writing this post, there are only x9 copies left.

For more information, you can contact George on fallonsmagic@gmail.com

Typo; "If the above quotes don't tell you how how this is" - should read, If the above quotes don't tell you how good this is

Yes if you want to, you do not have to use the dictionary ,but when using both then it has an even more amazing effect.

As some of you may know I'm a bit of a book test collector. George sent me this and I really love it. Not really sure what I can add to what Bob and Richard have said. This is definitely something that I will use.

It is possible. Depends on certain factors.

Some very good news. I was speaking with George and he told me that he has found some more of that certain something to make this fabulous booktest work. He has five (5) to sell. His first batch was snapped up. It is only in the hands of a few. It comes with the highest recommendations from some of the biggest names in our art - Richard Osterlind being just one. I have performed it on stage and on radio. Every time it was met with gasps. I am not into hype so I will not go on and on. Suffice to say, if you want a very devious book test that you can perform close up or on stage, endorsed by some of the pros, then look no further than this. Price, availability, etc can be found by contacting George on email: fallonsmagic@gmail.com
