This well published book sits comfortably in the hand, which is just as well, as it will become a constant companion to readers interested in Sherlock Holmes. The foreword by Gyles Brandreth describes the book as `wonderful.....entertaining, engaging and surprising'. I would add informative and motivational. The writing style of these two experts in the field, adopts a friendly manner and encourages (inspires) the reader to find out more. Sources of further information abound in the book (websites, further reading lists or club details).
The book has something to offer everyone, whether that be people new to Sherlock or to long standing fans. The book covers a wide area from Arthur Conan Doyle to the current Steven Moffatt BBC series and the Robert Downey Junior films. I recommend the book to one and all.
