This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with Uri Geller.
Uri Geller is the subject of a new biography, “The Secret Life of Uri Geller: CIA Masterspy?” by technology journalist and former Time magazine correspondent, Jonathan Margolis. The book is published by Watkins Publishing.
Geller is one of the world’s most investigated and celebrated mystifiers. He has led a unique life shrouded in debate, controversy, and mystery. He is also related to Sigmund Freud.
In 1969 he began to demonstrate telepathy and psychokinesis to small audiences. By the end of 1971, he was a household name throughout Israel, thanks to his numerous stage appearances.
In 2012, Geller was awarded the prestigious Golden Grolla award, at the eleventh “Masters of Magic” convention in St Vincent Italy, for inspiring the world of magic. In 2012, he also received the Star Foundation award at the House of Commons in London, in recognition of his charity work.
