Miracle teases elements of Derren Brown's new Book on Happiness

In recent interviews, Derren has repeatedly stated that he is writing a book about happiness, but he has not offered many details.

Speaking to the Leicester Mercury recently, though, he noted that a lot of his research into happiness has made its way into the stage show. He also acknowledged that his stage shows tend to change a lot in their first couple of weeks, as he responds to audience feedback.

Derren Brown's Aylesbury Miracle

Derren is in Aylesbury this week, performing his latest stage show, Miracle. He gave an interview to local radio station Mix 96. Although he would not give away details of the show, he did reveal that:

- he does _not_ get nervous before going on stage
- he prefers stage magic to television magic because it is unedited
- he is currently writing a book about happiness
- Penn & Teller and Mac King remain among his favorite currently performing magicians
- he plans to take a break after this tour (as he also revealed on Twitter)

You can hear the entire 11-minute interview on the Mix 96 website.

Read Derren Brown's GQ Interview

December's British GQ includes a great Q&A with Derren Brown, which you can read at: GQ. Here's my favorite exchange from the interview:

Who owes you an apology? 

Nobody. I do appreciate it when people say sorry, or thank you - it bugs me when they don't. But people fight their own battles and generally operate in the way they think is best, and if I had had all their life experiences up to the point that they did whatever annoying thing they did, I imagine I'd have acted in the same way too. And if you walk around with a self-pitying narrative about your life that includes people who owe you apologies, you need to reconsider. 

As always, most of DB's answer are tongue-in-cheek.
