Reviewed by Roy Murry, Author

“Education never ends, Watson. It is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.”
― Arthur Conan Doyle, His Last Bow

Hollins' book of how to think correctly is full of educational information a young person should read and delve in. I was lucky enough to be trained by the best (Special Forces) at JFK Psychological Warfare Center in 1968 as my first education after High School, so some of the principles he writes about I knew.

I’m sure this is a very helpful book for people who are looking for this sort of thing, but I feel misled. I picked up this book thinking it would give me insight into how Holmes makes his famous deductions by telling me how to spot a liar and showing me how to gather information from footprints. It definitely did not. While a lot of the information was useful, it wasn’t what I was looking for. Favorite quote: “Boil that pasta and don’t look back.”

Think Like Sherlock

Good book with a new list of ideas to get you thinking. I have taken notes and plan on implementing some of the techniques. I think some of the examples on how to effectively utilize the techniques could be better worked. It is a quick read and provides good ideas. I do recommend it.

Critical thinking guidelines

This book references Sherlock Holmes in the way he thinks. It’s really about different ways to approach problems than solving mysteries.
Good tips but the Sherlock reference is fleeting.

Read this book and the use of SCAMPERs as well as reverse engineering a problem coupled with the way doctor's diagnosis happens, really amps up the normal way of thinking closer to Sherlock-like capability.

Good work....

It says lot of ways to tackle the problem that may arise with examples, not sure how i am going to use it, but it was very interesting and explained very well with examples..

Waiting for the next problem to come, to wear the Sherlock Holmes hat :)

Γενικά δεν με ενθουσιάζουν αυτά τα βιβλία. Όμως έπεσε τυχαία στα χέρια μου (μαζί με άλλα τρία παρόμοια) και έτσι το διάβασα. Οπότε ξεκάθαρα δεν είμαι ο κατάλληλος να πω πολλά για αυτό. Προφανώς πάντως το συγκεκριμένο είδος έχει το δικό του κοινό...

Excellent Book, must read

I have gained a lot by reading this book and will surely try to train myself on various aspects discussed in this book.
Thank you Peter!

Συμπαθητική προσπάθεια, αλλά ίσως να ενδιέφερε κάποιον που ασχολείται με τον τομέα των επιχειρήσεων περισσότερο απο εμένα, ως μια μικρή εισαγωγή στην καλύτερη διαχείριση και λύση προβλημάτων μέσα σε αυτές.
