A stunning Book Test for the modern thought reader.
Imagine having in your pocket a powerful demonstration of thought reading. Perform one on one, or on the largest stage. A thought reading demonstration with a pocket dictionary. Over 35,000 words.
Diction. The real work.
Diction is based on ideas from Ray Hyman, C.L. Boarde, and several others combined with practical additions I discovered through real world performances. More importantly...you will be provided with the perfect tools to carry a monster mental effect in your pocket. What could be more innocent than a pocket dictionary? Not to mention it has over 35,000 words and definitions! Impressive.
IF I pulled out a book you have never seen before you might be suspect, but this innocent and handy pocket dictionary is completely normal and examinable! Not to mentioned it is a Webster's New World Dictionary, which is the most commonly recognized dictionary in the WORLD.
Diction can be performed for one person at the coffee shop or for 800 people in a theater. Several subtle techniques are combined to create an unexplainable feat of mentalism.
You introduce Webster's pocket dictionary containing over 35,000 defined words. You have a page selected by people choosing random numbers. No cards, dice, or math of any kind are used to select a page in a contrived way. Lets say page 42 is selected. The person holding the dictionary is asked to turn to that page. The performer can now instantly reveal AT LEAST TWO WORD REVELATIONS FOR ANY PAGE SELECTED. Not only that but the performer can even give details about the word and even full definitions!
What you get....

It can also be examined.
