detect the slightest facial changes that people make. You too can do it if you have the will, dedication, and time to put into it. I don't. But it was compelling to read about how he does it. Written in a very readable fashion.
I found the writing to be excellent and the overall flow was great. I do believe he did a little too much `name dropping' but then again, if I had traveled in his shoes, I might drop a name or two myself. What's the harm?
I did find the parts of the book that talked about getting more in tune with your own senses to be of interest and thought provoking.
My only caveat which prevents this from being a five star book is Kreskin's adamant assertion that ESP is fraudulent and then going on to give examples of his own ESP (all the while insisting he doesn't know how it works). I suppose he was leaving some room for those true believers that attend his shows to believe he really has harnessed powers that elude the rest of us. The way it was presented just rang a bit of disingenuous to me.
Overall, a good book and recommend for mentalist fans.
I hope you find this review helpful.

It is a great read, especially for those of us who grew up in the "Amazing Kreskin" era on television. He was one of those who early-on fostered my interest in magic, illusion and mentalism. The book did not disappoint.
While I might have a different perspective on Kreskin's abilities, no one can deny his effectiveness by "whatever" means he uses or labels those abilities. There was much of the book I would not venture to perform, but there were most definitely "nuggets" I quite happily walk away with as a purchaser and reader of this book.
I'm very happy with my purchase.

book mainly full of classic tricks and what really got me what is his take on hypnotism, as it being a fake. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Craigln
This book has some of the background to what Kreskin does but the real secrets seems to be missing. Perhaps it takes years and a lot of studying to accomplish what he does.Published on May 25, 2013 by AlfK
This book was easy to read, enjoyable and insightful. True, it lacked a sense of any depth, but you can't expect much more than that from a book that is targeted to a beginner... Read morePublished on January 7, 2013 by S. Alexander Hardison
