Debuting in 1971 and running for close to seven years the popular Mentalist dazzled millions of viewers weekly with his aptly named Series: The Amazing World of Kreskin. Even Kreskin could not foresee that his show would become the second highest rated television program in Canada (second only to Hockey Night in Canada) be syndicated across America and around the globe and even be dubbed into Japanese. You can find "The Best Moments of the Amazing Kreskin" 2 DVD set on Amazon for under $15.00.
I highly recommend it. Many years ago I saw Kreskin live and was sadly disappointed. This DVD set presents Kreskin in his prime. He is astonishing! He is one of greatest talented mentalists. Kreskin will knock you out! Don't miss him!

Some where I read that Kreskin studied the methods of Joseph Dunninger. Is that true? Did Dunnnger do cold readings from the audience as does Kreskin? When Dunninger performed live on stage didn't he do a question and answer routine?

Was Kreskin the best doing cold readings from the audience or are there others in the same class? Who are they?

Dunninger did not practice cold reading.

I agree. I saw him at a casino in the end of October, He did his show followed by a Halloween seance. Aside from a few moments of impatience with some assistants, the show was stunning. I thought he was in top form. And he went straight into the act when he walked out. Not much of the talking I was expecting at the beginning. One of my favorite experiences.

I think these two examples from youtube are NOT on the Amazing World of Kreskin 2 DVD set. But I think you will agree with me that they are beautiful. And worth checking out.

I watched the first clip and found it to be pretty uninteresting. Is this truly prime Kreskin?

A nice accompaniment to The Best Moments of the Amazing Kreskin is the book, The Psychology of the Psychic, first edition, where there is a chapter analyzing some of Kreskin's effects and methods. Only the first edition includes the Kreskin chapter, though.

Agreed as to the recommendation of "The Psychology of the Psychic" (especially first edition). As I recall, two Australian psychologists followed Kreskin around and reverse-engineered his entire show. Even without the Kreskin chapter, the book reveals many of the methods employed by mentalists.

There should be a special place in hell for people who use 9/11 to "prove" their powers.
