I love it when an issue of Genii or MAGIC or whatever gets me excited about magic all over again, and such is the case with the fine Derren Brown issue. Derren's two books and his video are among my favorite purchases of the past few years, and this issue is a great intro if you don't already own them. Derren can be wickedly funny (you must buy his books!), and it's great that he feels no need to abide by the "rules" that some magicians think are sacrosanct, to very interesting results. (Mentalists are even more a PITA about their maxims, and he violates those as well.) Also enjoyed the David Ben and Darren Romeo pieces, and I'm still reading.
