Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Real Sherlock Holmes: The Mysterious Methods and Curious History of a True Mental Specialist (Paperback)
You buy a book by someone called 'The Real Sherlock Holmes' who clearly has a lot to live up to with such a grand title. Yet the answer to the question 'does it live up to it?' Oh my god yes!! Over and over again! What is provided within these pages is an exquisite insight into the mind of a mental specialist! It quickly becomes apparent by the knowledge that is imparted within this book that a specialist is precisely what he is! Each chapter does exactly as it says it does, tells you precisely what to do and how to do it yet in such a way as to not over face you or overwhelm you in any way. It is done in such a way so you are never put off by the outlined work within each chapter. I would like to make a particular note of the chapter regarding the science of deduction, the magnitude of the wisdom you the reader receives for the mere pittance of the asking price is outstanding. Covered concepts such as observation and deduction via self annihilation and the suppressing of emotions to allow clear reasoning are just magnificent. I personally have had the rare pleasure (as it is I live on a different continent) to have Joe demonstrate his Sherlock worthy deductive skills for me. Watching these skills be performed in front of you is truly phenomenal! The best part is that they are all in this wonderful book! I showed him around my living room for less than TEN seconds via my laptop's webcam, He then proceeded to deduce nearly my entire life story in unimaginable detail! Do yourself a favor and if you want to know how to think like or begin to build your mind like Sherlock Holmes then buy this book! NOW!!!!!
