The Amazing Kreskin's new book features art by Joe St. Pierre.
The Amazing Kreskin reveals more about his synesthesia in a new book which launched today in Midtown Manhattan.The legendary mentalist chose Patsy's Italian Restaurant to launch his eighteenth book: Conversations With Kreskin. The man with 80 appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson likes the restaurant that always stayed open on Thanksgiving so that Frank Sinatra would have a place to eat. It was great to catch up with one of the world's most famous "synnies." Among the friends and journalists present was Roger Ailes, chairman of Fox News and Fox Television Stations, who wrote the foreword to the book. It was co-authored by Michael McCarty and features an eight-page full color comic art insert by illustrator Joe St. Pierre. The longtime performer, who according to David Letterman is "the best mentalist in the world, and he's not acting," addresses his rare brain trait on pages 16-19 of the tome. He first explains what synesthesia is and notes he believes it is going to become more widely known in time to come and calls it a renewed, exciting discovery. Kreskin notes in the book that though he has hiked The Grand Tetons and Machu Picchu, his greatest voyage is the human mind.
