By Choice & By Chance Review

This is an awesome effect. The dictionary is real, the dice are ungimmicked, the pad is...well...a pad. The revelation, if played right, can be stunning to spectators. I did have one spectator approach me after a recent show and point out that memory work could be employed to get the proper effect. I wouldn't worry about this observation too much as I've performed this trick over a hundred times (as of 2/23/13) both in intimate close up and parlor settings, and that was the first time anyone said anything about it.
If you are a mentalist, this one is for you.
By the way, memory work is not a requirement to perform this

Manufacturer's Description:

A book test for the strolling magician. You give the spectator a dictionary containing thousands of words and a couple of dice. The directions are simple: a word will be chosen by choice and by chance. The chance consists of rolling the dice to get any random numbers. Then the choice comes into play: the spectator can use those numbers in several ways. If they rolled a 5 and a 4, they could add those numbers and turn to page 9 or page 45 or page 54, or roll again and start with new numbers. Whatever they choose, they open the book to the selected page and think of the first word on the page. The magician writes down his prediction. The spectator names their word and - they are a perfect match. Very easy, no tough stuff or memory work. Comes with dictionary, dice, notepad and full instructions.
