Be Like Derren Brown - the Best Reference Materials

In the past 4 years, I have read every book I could find that seemed to reveal Derren Brown's unique skills. There have been a few immensely useful books, which I will reveal below. Follow the affiliate links if you are interested in learning more:

1.  The Power of Conversational Hypnosis by Igor Ledochowski
This audio course is a resource I have found that genuinely teaches how to use conversational hypnosis. It is downloadable so you can order it on-line. Just look past the cheesy promotional language on Ledochowski's webpage: Conversational Hypnosis.

2. Rules of the Game by Neil Strauss
Although designed for men who want to pick up women, this book works for anyone who wants to be more likeable and engaging with other people. It is essentially a 30-day course in improving your ability to approach and connect with others. You will see traces of  Derren's techniques in the skills discussed.
You can buy it at Amazon UK or Amazon US.

3. Never be Lied to Again by David J. Lieberman
I have read all of Lieberman's books and have found most of them to be useful. This one is the most directly related to what Derren does because it teaches how to detect whether others are lying. Most of the techniques involve scripted conversations you can have with people you suspect to be lying.
You can buy it at Amazon UK or Amazon US.

These are the three most practical be-like-Derren sources I have found. I might add more to the list from time to time.
