The Erasmus Book Test Series: I Ching

by Angelo Stagnaro

The “I Ching” represents the second volume in Angelo Stagnaro’s Kismet Book Test series. There are six titles in the series.

The Kismet Books are distinct from other book tests in that they are designed to be self-working cold reading aids.  “I Ching” is a multiple-use mentalism tool that will allow the performer to conduct several mentalism experiments during a single 45-minute performance using only this book. Mentalism effects possible with this book include: 1) reading a spectator’s mind, 2) cold read the spectator, 3) offer experiments in extrasensory perception (ESP), 4) offer experiments in telepathy, 5) offer experiments in precognition.

The I Ching is a system of Chinese divinization used in ancient times. According to legend, Fu Hsi, a philosopher and sage who ultimately become an emperor of one of the kingdoms in what later became modern China, was said to have created the system.
