Mother Of All Book Tests (Pocket Edition)

For years, performers both professional and amateur, have been requesting a pocket-size version of the Mother for their walk-around and on-the-go performances.

We are happy to announce that this request has been met and exceeded by all expectations. Mentalists and magicians alike will be excited to learn that the Mother of all Book Tests-PE not only enables the user to perform the classic Mother routines, but with the kind permission of Larry Becker, Flashback as well!

Think about it. Two classic book tests in one portable, fully examinable book. With the kind permission of Josh Zandman, we have used antonyms in the Flashback segment of the book, thus guaranteeing an extra layer of subtlety for the discerning performer.

For those who own Mother 1.0 (hardcover: Fa- tal Sins and/or softcover: Murder at Midnight), there is nothing new to learn. The key words in Mother-PE are the same as in the original Mother. And the Flashback antonyms have been selected to require the minimal amount of thought. They are to say, automatic.So now, mentalists and magicians alike who would like to entertain their close-up audiences with a book test that conveniently slips inside a jacket pocket can now do so.

The text size is nice and readable for those low-light settings you may find yourself in. And the line spacing is wider which makes it easier for them to see the long words.  This is something you will be using ALL of the time under virtually any and all conditions. It is the perfect effect to take along when meeting with a new client or agent. Unlike the larger versions of the Mother which are perfect for stage, Mother-PE is compact enough and ideal for strolling performers at cocktail hours, parties, etc.

As with all of our Mother releases, the Pocket Edition is produced with the utmost quality and geared to day-in and day-out usage. As a bonus, we are including Ted K.’s reputation-making blister effect. This is directly fromTed’s close-up set and involves the use of the Mother of all Book Tests-PE. It is by far his most requested presentation in close-up settings. This blockbuster handling has been shared with a select few over the years and includes Ted’s thoughts on the various blister routines and gimmicks. Jack Kent Tillar (the creator of the original blister effect) was delighted with Ted’s commercial handling. We know you will be, too!

The dimensions of this Paperback book are as follows:

6.75 inchestall, 4.25 inches wide, 0.6 inches deep. Weight: 8 oz.
