The inside of Derren Brown's head is a strange and mysterious place. Now you can climb inside and wander around. This title helps find out just how Derren's mind works, see what motivates him and discover what made him the weird and wonderful person he is today. Obsessed with magic and illusions since childhood, Derren's life to date has been an extraordinary journey and here, in "Confessions of a Conjuror", he allows us all to join him on a magical mystery tour - to the centre of his brain...Taking as his starting point the various stages of a conjuring trick he's performing in a crowded restaurant, Derren's endlessly engaging narrative wanders through subjects from all points of the compass, from the history of magic and the fundamentals of psychology to the joys of internet shopping and the proper use of Parmesan cheese. Brilliant, hilarious and entirely unlike anything else you have ever read before, "Memoirs of a Mentalist" is a complete and utter joy.

Review quote

"There are certain things you know you want from a particular autobiography. The stuff you neither hope for nor expect - that's the author's real gift of self. Derren Brown - who reads his 'Confessions of a Conjuror' with the same elegance and warmth he brings to his mindboggling performances. The audio is a rich and easy joy from beginning to end." -- Bella Todd Time Out

About Derren Brown

Derren began his UK television career in December 2000 with a series of specials called Mind Control. Since redefining the genre of magic for intelligent, modern audiences, he has become synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. His TV shows have become must-see events. Amongst a varied and notorious career, Derren has played Russian Roulette on live television, convinced middle-managers to commit an armed robbery in the street, led the nation in a seance, stuck viewers to their sofas, successfully predicted the National Lottery, motivated a shy man to land a packed passenger plane at 30,000 feet, exposed psychic and faith-healing charlatans, and hypnotised a man to assassinate Stephen Fry. On top of this he tours the UK every year with a sell-out stage show. He has published three books: Tricks of the Mind, Confessions of a Conjuror and a book of his caricatures, Portraits. At home, Derren is a quiet 41-year old who paints, keeps a parrot and enjoys Bach. He dislikes mushrooms and blue cheese, and wishes he could play the piano.
