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.

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 :)
