Publisher's Summary

Derren Brown gets into your brain...and reveals how to make it work better.

Do you ever make mistakes? Do you ever lose your temper and then immediately regret it? Are you impulsive? Do you make great plans which you fail to act on? Do you ever behave irrationally?  

Don’t worry, it’s not your fault. Your brain is to blame. Extraordinary though it is, your brain is riddled with biases, blind spots and other cognitive weaknesses which can lead you seriously astray. But Derren Brown’s Boot Camp will help you tame your errant brain and fundamentally change the way you think.

In eight episodes, packed with gripping real life stories and cutting edge science, the series takes you into the deeper recesses of the mind, to reveal what’s going on, identify the bits which tend to go wrong and show you how to repair them. Along the way it discloses the secrets of some of Derren’s spectacular tricks of the mind.

Not helpful

I thought this would give me activities or methods on how to train my brain, instead it’s just information about neurological aspects and studies about brain activity. Interesting if you want to know about grey matter, not helpful if you’re looking to control it.

Brilliantly beneficial. I highly recommend!

Witty, engaging, and beneficial.

I have previously read and listened to Darren Brown's book "Happy", and found that to be illuminating and profoundly helpful. This series is completely separate, but also a lovely addition to that. It identifies and breaks down our thought processes, helping us to take control of making decisions and so live a more conscious life. With pandemic life becoming quite a grind for me, it was the perfect time to listen to this and regain authorship. Plus, the episodes are just the right length and very well produced. Thank you, Derren.

Derren retells Thinking Fast And Slow with jokes

This was an enjoyable podcast, but a "boot camp" it is not. It's just Derren rehashing all the stuff you can easily learn from one or two popular science books on cognitive blind spots and throwing in some of his jokes for good measure. The jokes did make me chuckle.

Fascinating Listening

Entertaining and fascinating. Insights into how the brain works and how to improve it, such as how avoid being manipulated and becoming aware of your own prejudices.

Excellent

Really interesting & engaging. Even though I was already familiar with many of the ideas, it gave me new insights and was presented in a entertaining away.
It would have been 5 stars if I hadn't found the background music/ sound effects so annoying.

Informative, Fascinating, Entertaining.

Compelling listening. Science made palatable.. I've enjoyed listening to this audio book 3 times so far & gaining new & clearer insights each time.

Whilst I'm already familiar with some of the facts & experiments referred to this presentation gave me an entertaining & refreshing perspective.
