really liked it
Recommended for: researchers
Read in February, 2007

A few of the things I learned:

Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth

Never theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment.

Also, I now sometimes try to analyze people based on their shoes and pants when sitting on the subway. I have yet to ask anyone if I was accurate about my predictions.

message 1: by Brittkay (new) - added it

Brittkay I try analyzing people like that now, too. But doesn't that just mean we are really judgmental?

Christina No. That means we are deducing. Judging is something else... I think. Plus it's from a great book so...that's points of us!

Majorbookworm I also have yet to ask :)

Brenda C Wells One of my favorite books.

Rasan Aziz it makes u an intelligent person

Jamey Nope. It just means you are practicing the science of deduction. Being judgmental means you are thinking more or less of them by how they look.
