Participant keeps one of the books. You've never seen or handled it. You take the second book and flip through the pages until the participant says "STOP." This is an absolutely free choice and the participant may verify the page number. Participant 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 the words in any way you choose.
Also included is a special bonus routine "Watch It". Again completely impromptu! Josh Zandman applies his IBT principles to two borrowed watches. Participant selects a time on each watch. You instantly reveal both.
Additional routines and suggestions by Andrew Gerard, Dr. Bill Cushman, Greg Arce, and Richard Osterlind.
"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
"Zandman's IBT is very clever, very direct and very usable! I'm adding it to my toolbox of truly impromptu effects."
- Timothy Hyde
"Josh Zandman's Impromptu Book Test should be in every mentalist's arsenal. If you like simple, direct and hard hitting mentalism, as I do, then IBT is definitely something you will use and enjoy performing."
- John Smetana
"This is one of those "D'oh, why didn't I think of it?" ideas! ... And the point that it's so easy to do only sweetens the satisfaction of performing it."
"I was never a fan of book tests but am a huge fan of IBT. It has made all these gimmicked book tests redundant in my opinion."
