Meir Yedid's Walk On Water Book Test was first released in 1987. Since that time it has sold-out multiple times and the older versions fetch good money on the used magic market. There are currently more than 8,000 sets in circulation and many top pros use it as part of their shows.
This sixth edition comes with two new books: "Here On Earth" and "Worm." The ingenious method stayed the same where you are able to get instant access to the first and last word of every page in both books -- allowing for free choices all along the way during the routine.
This is the sixth edition of the best-selling book test that many professionals use in their close-up and stand-up shows. It is quick, direct and easy to present.
While on stage you mention that you would like to try an experiment in mind reading. You pull out a bag from the local book store, rip it open and remove two hardcover books. Select a spectator. Have her verify that she has never met you and have her select one of the two books (free choice). Have her look through the book and tell you how many pages it has.
A second spectator is now asked to name any page number in the book (free choice). The first spectator now turns to the selected page and concentrates on the first word on that page.
You now read the spectator's mind and write down the word she is thinking of.
Ask her to yell out the word she is thinking of, then show the audience the word you wrote. They match. It's a miracle.
But, it is not over yet. As an afterthought have the spectator think of the last word on that page. You can now proceed to dramatically spell out the thought of word for a double miracle.
- Two special hard-cover books ("Here On Earth: A Natural History Of The Planet" and "Worm: The First Digital World War")
