This is much more than a collection of quotes, it is a way to learn the powers of observation, understand the limits of our mind and counter the narrative fallacy with what else? A narrative.
Wonderful and enjoyable book on so many levels. A book that will be reread many times
This short (65-page) book is a compendium of wisdom that one can dip into at random to reinforce an inquiring and questioning mind. Its single sentence themes and brief quotes make it like a commonplace book. In its themes and conclusions (and often in its selections of quotes from the Holmes treasury), it’s very similar to Maria Konnikova’s Mastermind:How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes. But where Bevelin limits his quotes to Holmes and his contemporaries, Konnikova riffs into contemporary research and thought. Both are valuable and fun—how could they not be when led by the great detective?
Easy and quick read
Worth rereading from time to time
