To Have The Books Examined

Let's assume that you've handed out three of the four examinable books. (The only book I wouldn't advise handing out is the one used to perform "Hoy Plus"). You invite the spectators to examine the books as follows. "Please quickly scan these paperback novels from cover-to-cover. Make sure all the pages are different from one another and pay particular attention to the diversity of the first word on every page, because it's one of those words that we'll use."

As you can see, the patter focuses the spectator's attention on the first word on every page. A quick riffle-scan of the books will reveal that the first word on every page is different. Incidentally, unlike the original Flashback, that first word, in the new version, now contains five or more letters. No more will you possibly have to reveal a one or two letter word. If you utilize this examination procedure to preface any combination of effects possible with "Ultimate Flashback," you'll immediately take the heat off the books. Have one of the spectators freely select any page as you riffle the pages of his book. Ask him to concentrate on the first word of text on the page he has selected (obtain your peek) and immediately reveal the word in his mind.
