The UK's best loved illusionist finally reveals what really makes him tick
The inside of Derren Brown's head is a strange and mysterious place. Now you can climb inside and wander around. 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 Memoirs of a Mentalist, he allows us all to join him on a magical mystery tour - to the centre of his brain...
“It combines a playfully baroque prose style with pinpoint observation and almost excruciating levels of self-examination, if not loathing. It's a fascinating experience.”
AL Kennedy, Guardian, Books of the Year
“A fantastic voyage into Derren Brown's intensely sharp brain... A deeply funny and eccentric triumph”
“Closer to the work of someone like Malcolm Gladwell than to the ... reminiscences of Brown's memoirs-writing contemporaries”
“A lovely kind of magic trick in book form”
“Weird, whimsical and, at times, uproarious... Brown takes us on a meandering pleasure cruise downriver. It is worth the journey.”
