I should have known that the Mind COntrol would be taken off of the sci-fi channel because it always happens to the shows I actually like. WHile most seem to be content with the zombie producing effects of so called reality t.v, myself and others enjoy shows that are a little more challenging and indeed D.B.'s mind control is that very show. Watch the episode on psychic readings and then watch an episode of John Edwards and if your still convinced the guy is talking to the dead, well I've got a get rich quick kit screaming your name. Darren Brown exposes the so called psychics and shows how the mind is alot more fragile than one would think. Not only is it revealing, it actually entertains as well! I highly recommend any episode and I applaud Brown's exposure of the frauds out there and for providing evidence of how they do it. Sylvia Brown, (no relation), Edwards and others beware... the proof that you guys are indeed the biggest douchbags alive is now available.

I just love it.Derren brown combines NLP, Hypnotherapy and showmanship and makes miracles in front of the camera. If you like NLP or Hypnotherapy or interested in self development books and approaches, this program is for you. If you are interested in magic,this is still the right program for you.

Derren Brown's name comes up up a lot in conversation in NLP and hypnosis circles. He is well known in the UK from his tv series there, and his various books, and not so well known here in the USA, yet.

So, I don't know if you know how incredible a bargain it is to be able to get this product here on Amazon for $1.99 an episode as I write.

I have downloaded all the episodes, so as you probably imagine, it's been valuable. There are numerous interesting situations.

My personal favorite is the BMX aka the birthday present story, where he changes someone's birthday present preference by using a language pattern, combined with a handshake induction together with embedded commands and anchoring, and subliminal persuasion. Really incredible work.

You can also see other nlp processes in action such as anchoring, and switching submodalities. As the subjects he works with don't notice what he does consciously, much of what of what he does will also escape your attention. Even if you don't know nlp, or even if you do, well, I still had to watch several sequences several times to notice what he was doing, and learned new things each time.

You don't have to know NLP to be wowed by what he does, though the more you, the more you can appreciate the consummate skill with which he pulls off his various pranks.

One of the other cases is the cold reading experiment, where he used the exact same cold reading on 5 different women, but they said he described them to a tee. But don't just take my word for it. You can check out his various segments on Youtube.

There is also a segment in Vegas where he changes a woman's perception of her car's color. This is probably as elegant a display of hypnotic and NLP techniques as you will see publicly displayed.

I think Derren Brown could make anyone do anything and they wouldn't know they were doing it! It was so amazing to watch. I couldn't get enough of the practical jokes he played, and the incredible ways he manipulated people and they didn't know they were being manipulated. He is hysterically funny, amazing brilliant and I just can't get enough of his videos.

...wondering how Derren does the things he does. The name for the handing-over-the-wallet thing he does is called "The Russian [...]" and it's brilliant, a very good example of face to face influencing and a bit of misdirection. If you are an NLP junkie, you will be tempted to start labeling what he does as NLP, but I invite you to take those goggles off while you are watching, and watch it for what he says it is... a bit of misdirection and showmanship.
