Derren Brown is an English mentalist, illusionist, and author. He has produced several other shows for the stage and television in both series and specials.
Derren Brown has written several best-selling books and – a first in the history of magic – has toured with eight sell-out one-man stage shows. He wrote the brilliant and candid book “Happy,” which aims to reclaim happiness and enable us to appreciate the good things in life, in all their transient glory. By taking control of the stories we tell ourselves, by remembering that 'everything's fine' even when it might not feel that way, we can allow ourselves to flourish and live more happily. In this episode, Derren discusses his work on the psychology and philosophy of well-being. Moderated by Googler Matt Brittin. Visit to watch the video.
