"I will be brief- if you are a mentalist or love to watch mentalism, JUST GET IT. You wont be dissapointed. Kreskin is truly Amazing. Even if they are old, he used all forms of mental suggestions that are talked about today- suggestions using sleight of mouth, educated guesses, sleight of hand, and some ESP. He is respectable, and someone worth watching in action. I wish, he passes his knowledge to someone."

"The Amazing Kreskin is nothing short of amazing, and there's nothing wrong with the fact that he knows it! These somewhat dated shows from the early 70s will make those who recall watching the shows at the time feel old, and just how much they've been through, especially when he references movies like STAR WARS.
Yes, Kreskin even amazes himself at times and mum's the word when it comes to how he does it. Some of it has to be legitimate ESP, but other parts are simply sleight of hand and magic tricks. His relentless use of cards becomes tiring (it's something many magicians become competent in), but when he rattles off birthdays, parts of peoples' Social Security numbers and the like; when he tells people how many kids they have, what their ages are and their birth dates are; and when he tells them what types of pets they have -- these things are much harder to do unless you have some part of your mind you can tap into. And Kreskin can reach that part of his mind.
He claims to do nothing that anyone else can't do, but he's clearly wrong. His ability to hypnotize is astounding. Hypnotism is no easy thing to master, and yet he's a master of it, and he shouldn't underestimate his abilities.
The movie THE GREAT BUCK HENRY is based on Kreskin, but unlike the character in the movie, Kreskin is a gentleman and has a great and abiding regard for people. It's important to him that they believe in him, even though some parts are more trick than treat. In the end, he could be everyone's favorite uncle. I'm often astounded at the meanness people show in regard to the man, but he will undoubtedly be vastly underestimated by people when he passes from the public scene. In reality, he will be one of the giants on whose shoulders others will stand. I know people who know his name, but have never seen him. That's sad. This collection is well worth having, especially for fans.
