This review is from: How to think like Sherlock: Improve Your Powers of Observation, Memory and Deduction (Hardcover)
This book is not useful in any way and is very superficial. Large tracts have been lifted from the Sherlock Holmes stories, ostensibly to illustrate points but in fact serve as padding. The quizzes are childish and indeed, the book seems aimed at a pre-teen audience. Perhaps the best advice is from the author himself on page 84 of the hardback edition: "To improve your own deductive powers, you can do no better than read the entire Sherlock Holmes canon."
