Zandman Book Test - magic

An incredibly simple and powerful book test for the professional or casual performer.

The Great Gatsby Book Test gives you the freedom to perform a powerful mind reading miracle, anywhere at any time, without the need to memorize a single thing. You can also hand out the book before, after, or during the performance without worries of revealing the secret. The method is so cleverly disguised and practically undetectable, even under close examination.

NOTE: The method for this effect is the same as Christmas Carol Book Test, but with the entire novel of The Great Gatsby.

BONUS: The Great Gatsby works with the Christmas Carol book test! As you riffle through The Great Gatsby, your participant stops you at any page, notes the page number and opens to that page in the Christmas Carol book. Using the same method, you know the first word on the page!

Josh's method is also featured in Ted Karmilovich's, Mother of All Book Tests Pocket Edition

Here's exactly what happens:

  • Performer riffles through the pages of the book. 
  • Participant at any time, says stop and looks at the first word on the page. 
  • You know the word without asking a single question or having anything written down.


  • Nothing to memorize 
  • No questions asked 
  • Nothing is written down 
  • Completely examinable

4.25" x 7" paperback with 274 pages

  • Al asks: Do you have Sherlock Holmes book test? Also, is it possible to force a particular page number with this book? So that I can bring in a non gimmicks book?

    • 1. Dylan answers: They have a particular page force, but you could in theory learn it anywhere that does impromptu page forces. As virtually nobody will figure out the "gimmick" aspect, you have nothing to worry about if you combine Gatsby, Sherlock, or Scarlett to figure out the word on the opened page.

Customer reviews for Zandman Book Test



Absolutely love this! I looked through the book when I first got it for around half an hour, trying to figure out the secret, I just couldn't find anything. I actually thought Vanishing Inc. had sent me the wrong book!? Then when I watched the streaming video and discovered the secret, I had the biggest smile on my face, it's so sneaky and clever.



I thought this was just a fancy looking flashback book, but there is actually a lot more going on. I recommend getting the Sherlock one along with this for a seemingly casual yet fantastic routine.



Excellent mentalism book, it comes with a streaming video, its very easy to follow, using different options on how too, once you no the secret, its so easy to do, then just add your own bit of magic which is also explained in the video, this is a very enjoyable one to do.
