Greg, where are you selling this FBT? Thanks



Go to http://www.freestylebooktest.com
You can find all the details there. Some people have had problems with the password. A little hint: In the name box put double and in the password box put the second word in that book test name.

Could I use a book written in French to do this book test? In other words, can I personalize it with any book???

Yes. if you look about ten posts up you'll see that I explain a bit about how it works and how you have to change the mnemonic lists to ones that work in your language.

That'd be interesting: doing the Freestyle with a French poetry book.

No, seriously. If you're using a language that few other people in the audience know, then you can have a sort-of dual reality effect going on. You'd be telling them all kinds of things going on with your "work" in the book and your volunteer can confirm it all--yet the audience thinks you're talking about something else in the book.

Another thing you can add to the effect would be that flower effect from Magick. Basically, you show a list of flowers to the audience, you have a lady call out a number--for instance, a rose--then, you pull off a cover that's been draped over the table. What's there? A vase full of roses! Naturally, you give her one and tell her all about your French poetry.

Now, I'll admit this is a bit too theatrical for my taste, but I knew a guy who did "flower readings" in New York and he'd make a killing at all the christmas events with stuff like this.

In the current issue of Genii there is a nice review of this effect.

Congrats to our friend Greg!
