Reviews

Experiencing the Impossible is a cogently argued, persuasive and often enthralling account of the pleasures he experienced while researching what he calls "one of the most captivating and enduring forms of entertainment."-Times Higher Education

A fascinating foray into the subtle mechanics of creating wonder.

-Nature

Research suggests that even when the audience knows how a magic trick works, it still has the power to amaze and intrigue, much like this book did for me. I recommend it to the curious.

-Chemistry World

An engaging and accessible read focusing on an unusual, yet surprisingly interesting connection, the one between magic and cognitive sciences.

-Perception

With Experiencing the Impossible, Kuhn manages to both contextualize the experience of wonder, while also taking an in-depth look at the scientific principles at work within our confused brains as we try to make sense of the inexplicable.

-Spectrum Culture

An engaging and informative work.

-Choice
