  • Summary

  • The cognitive story behind a simple act of aggression. How our brain is essentially stuck in the Stone Age, struggling to deal with the complexity and pressures of modern life. And how an ongoing battle between our twin cognitive systems - our fast and slow thinking brains - lies behind much that goes wrong in our lives.

no issue with play

It is what you take from it. go in with an open mind; and remember he's a mentalist, as am I. If you are open for some outside influence to hold up the mirror to yourself, fine. If you're expecting a quick fix without any commitment, stop. This is not hypnosis, it's a means to understand ourselves. for that, I think it's good! this is a good 'sleep audio' and not one to be thought too hard about, but worthwhile.

boring, patronising; annoying background music.

best thing about it: it's free. Derren Brown is soo patronising. background music as equally irritating as Derren.

My silly brain likes this a lot

Wonderfully engaging, easy to listen to, and for me, left me feeling like I could listen to a hundred more episodes. Highly recommended

Amazing

So useful for my work providing psychoeducational therapy to women who have experienced trauma. Links to the research studies would be KaMaZiNg if at all possible and thanks for making this accessible to all by being free. I know my clients will find it incredibly helpful, and so do I.

Terrific

What a treasure he is because he has it all. The voice, the intonation, storytelling, intellect and linguistics. How lucky we are to have him teach us this helpful and life affirming/ changing research and information.

He’s so interesting

Derren Brown is just so interesting. I also found that I actually learned something from these podcasts.

Too much background music

The content is interesting but I couldn’t get past the irritating loop of “spooky” keyboard music in the background. Part of a general tendency towards dumbing down or maybe its because he’s a showman? I gave up after 15 minutes.
