Hello Lauren,

Glad you like the scans, there are more now as I've got the rest of
the TV guide magazines scanned too.

Not sure if we are allowed to be giving away any of his tricks here
but I do know how the number trick is done - I've read two other
magazines and they didn't say the spectator tells him the number, I
thought he suggested/forced a number to them but from the TV Times
article it appears that he simply guesses twice (doesn't matter if
it's wrong, bonus if it is right) then just ask what the number was.
From there he can just do the 4x4 square and amazing the audience!

Yes he says he learned how to speed/photo read, I am on my way
learning this technique along with learning memory skills. It's the
most amazing thing - to be able to recall anything in your mind at
any time! This is how Derren can recall the line of any page of any
book! It does take time to get quick at it, he says he can photo read
a book in about 20 minutes which is damn quick!!

Hope this was interesting for you...
