You are in someone’s home or if you prefer a library or bookstore. Anywhere. Someone goes and gets any two books You never see or handle either until the participant puts one in your hands
She keeps the other, which you have NEVER seen or touched
You flip through the pages of your book until she says "STOP”
This is an absolutely free choice and the participant notes the page number
. She goes to that page in her book and remembers a word
The books are exchanged and the process repeated
You are immediately able to reveal both words in any way you choose!
Additional Routines & Suggestions By
Richard Osterlind, Greg Arce, Dr. Bill Cushman and Andrew Gerard.
Also included is a special bonus routine:
Again completely impromptu!
Josh Zandman applies his IBT principles with two borrowed watches.
You and a participant each select a time on a watch and write it down.
The watches are switched and the process repeated
. Your times match. Twice.
So strong and yet so easy to perform!
"Josh Zandman's IBT is a clever extension of known principles for the famous David Hoy book test. How wonderful that Hoy's original creation is still going strong after half a century! This latest arrangement would make Hoy smile. I did, and you will too." - Richard Busch
“One of the finest book tests I have seen. Truly impromptu. Any books, anywhere, any time. I have used it in my show and got an excellent response.” - Tony Razzano
