Sherlock Holmes is an incredible character and one who manages to remain relevant despite being conjured up decades ago. What we respond to is the idea of a man who uses immense intellect, cunning and skill to out-deduce, out-talk and out-think his opponents and to come out of any situation on top. All of us would like to display his kind of mental prowess and to command any scene with out immense knowledge and keen eye, and the good news is that a lot of what he does is attainable. With training and research there's no reason you can't be as perceptive, that you can't apply deduction and that you can't trick your opponents – or why all of those skills can't be applied to every day life.
In short, read this book and you'll get the mental edge over everyone around you. You'll learn:
* To be more observant
* To be more alert
* To use memory techniques to assign anything to memory and not forget
* The basics of human psychology
* How to spot clues
* How to interrogate and collect information
* How to persuade people
* How to speed read and think faster and how to use psychology in a fight.
* And a LOT more
It's all quite elementary really...
