Derren Brown Books

Derren Brown Books

Derren Brown is the master of magic. This page highlights all of his key books and publications to date to help you learn the tricks of his trade!

Forget Houdini and Paul Daniels, they're ancient history in the magic world these days. The fantastic entertainer that is Derren Brown is the leading man of global mental illusionists.

So who is this well spoken chap from London?

Derren has become famous for his reputation as a great entertainer whilst using a combination of (as he describes) "magic, suggestion, psychology, misdirection and showmanship". When Derren hit the big time, appearing on TV back when I was a little nipper, he was always destined for big things.

It's now of no coincidence that all of Derren's tours and shows practically sell out the second they're available! It's equally of no coincidence that millions of people tune in to watch his TV shows when they're broadcast on English TV.

I've always had a huge interest in the work of Derren Brown from the moment I was memorised by his TV shows as a youngster. As a consequence, I've seen every TV programme of his since then - and still as flabbergasted as I was the first time I watched him!!

Derren Brown's books offer an insight into some of the mind techniques that he uses to allow his 'illusions' and 'deception' to work as well as they do. I've read them and I think they're terrific! They've taught me some very useful tips for memory that I use on a regular basis! So watch out... Lee Holden might just be the new Derren Brown one day... er... or not...

Enjoy this lens all about the books by Derren Brown and it'd be magical if you could share your experiences and views with the rest of the Squidoo community!

Tricks of the Mind - Derren Brown Book

I read this book a while ago (back in 2006) and it was incredible. It taught me some really useful tips for remembering such things as numbers or list of items. In fact, I still use these methods today! I would strongly recommend this book for an insight into how Derren Brown does what he does!

Behind The Mischeif - An Insight Into Derren's Private Life

This was a great documentary created for the English TV's Channel 4. It's a fantastic insight into Derren Brown and his private life away from his magical exploits. A great watch if you are a fan of this legendary man like I am!

I'm always interested to talk about the Derren Brown books with people who have read them to really understand if they were appreciated just as much as they were to me.
