An essential handbook providing practical and accessible guidance for living life more contentedly. A Little Happier condenses the lessons of Derren Brown's bestseller Happy into a series of thoughtful and inspiring mini-chapters that readers can dip into for Stoic fortification when faced with life's stressors.
Derren began his UK television career in December 2000 with a series of specials called Mind Control. Since redefining the genre of magic for intelligent, modern audiences, he has become synonymous with the art of psychological manipulation. His TV shows have become must-see events. Amongst a varied and notorious career, Derren has played Russian Roulette on live television, convinced middle-managers to commit an armed robbery in the street, led the nation in a seance, stuck viewers to their sofas, successfully predicted the National Lottery, motivated a shy man to land a packed passenger plane at 30,000 feet, exposed psychic and faith-healing charlatans, and hypnotised a man to assassinate Stephen Fry. On top of this he tours the UK every year with a sell-out stage show and has recently finished a run on Broadway, NYC. He has published five books- Tricks of the Mind, Confessions of a Conjuror, Happy, A Little Happier and a book of his caricatures, Portraits.
Derren Brown is a mine of wisdom, humanity and kindness - everything we need to sustain and nourish ourselves. * Alain de Botton *
