Quoting some of the greatest philosophical minds of the past, Derren explains why he has found affinity with the Stoics and their approach in the pursuit of happiness. Also presenting a highly critical view of modern self-help books, Derren argues against the suggestion that we can control the uncontrollable; the universe will not give you what you desire simply because you ask for it.
First introduced to British audiences through a series of programmes entitled, Mind Control, Derren has been demystifying the subtle art of magical and psychological manipulation for 17 years. With his new audiobook, Happy, he agrees that he's moving on to similar but perhaps more intellectual pastures.
Describing Happy as an 'anti-self-help self-help book', Derren Brown wills his listeners to live in the present and think of happiness as a by-product and not an end in itself.

looking forward to the book Happy but.......
Just checked reviews and listened to the audio sample I have to say the narator doesn't seem to have done the book credit, maybe this could be re-read????

A lovely insight
Fun, short and full of anecdotes. It is nice to hear Derren when he isn't performing.
