That may change if his videos are released in Region One North America format, but as of now, only Americans with quirky interests are aware of him. But it’s worth going through it again, just reading the passages on the trick. His savant-like attention to detail indubitably vital to the completion of some of his tricks is preposteroulsy funny and amusing at times.
Although there were elements of Derren’s personality which I identified with, the persistent nature in which he rattles of his often bizarre infatuations breaking the foil seal on a new tube of toothpaste using the end of the cap, etc, etc is funny at first but seems to go on and on throughout the book.

Confessions of a Conjuror
While the seminal moments in Derren’s life that lead him to magic are covered, they are not the central focus of his book. After months of enjoying such a private pleasure as writing a book, it is quite another thing to hand it to the world, let alone the in-between world of book-people so ready to throw a party in your honour.
It ruins his weekend and upsets him deeply, denying him the after-glow of the programme. Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: Pah, I know, I know.
Confessions of a Conjuror Audiobook | Derren Brown |
This is an interesting book – a more like low-key stand-up comedy than an auto-biography. Nevertheless, I warn you not to buy this book. Witty and delightful, here you’ll learn Darren’s thoughts on a plethora of topics all set to the tune of a singular magic performance in a restaurant years ago. An interesting take on the standard celeb autobiography in which Derren uses a detailed description of a card trick performed some years ago as the narrative thread, and drifting off at tangents as he is reminded of incidents from his early life, prompted to connuror random lists, chooses to name-drop just a little!
Also some of the immense contessions in the descriptions of scenes depicted make this incredibly unique. These items are shipped from and sold by different sellers. Well worth an audible point. The entire journey through his mindscape takes place during the single card trick, and the style is gussied-up in a bravado display of literary prowess. I want to take back my previous comments…if you choose page 14….

Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Structured around the various stages of a conjuring trick, performed by his younger self in a crowded restaurant, Derren’s endlessly engaging narrative takes you from the history of magic, to speculations on the manufacturing of Monster Munch and the correct way to poach an egg, via discussions about psychology, what he hums while cleaning his teeth and the social niceties surrounding Parmesan cheese.
There are plenty of laugh-out-loud funny bits, and I would recommend this to fans, as well as people who have only a passing interest in his actual shows.
Hero, of course, fantastic on so many levels. Please try again later. Entertaining, thought-provoking and often taboo-crunching chat about ethics, science and art.
