For those interested, Derren Brown's Confessions of a Conjuror is handily available at amazon.co.uk, the hardback for 56% off the cover price. (18.99 down to 8.36 pounds). Postage is free in England and quite reasonable to the U.S. It's on its way to me, as of last night, for just over $25 total. Or you can skip the postage and order the kindle version.

I gave it a great review in the December issue of The Magic Circular.

I started reading this in a bookshop and before I knew it, I'd read half of it and completely forgotten where I was. A great book with an original, random but readable narrative with all of the streams of consciousness emanating from a single performance - I'd say even better than his previous book for the public, "Tricks of the mind" - with alot of thoughts you'll find yourself relating to. Cracking stuff!

I read it in a day. Great stuff. Only people I have seen not enjoying it are the silly children that seem to frequent magic forums that wanted it to teach them tricks.

It's a regular book too. I imagine dem yout' thought as it was a book by a magician there may be some tricks in there.
