My mind rebels at stagnation . Give me Holmes !
Reviewed in India on 8 April 2017
Any review of Sherlock Holmes must fall short. How can you capture a volcano , an inferno... nature itself it words ? Let me like Holmes focus on the rational aspects first . Holmes lives on for over a 100 years because of 3 main factors 1 ) His brilliance 2 ) His eccentricity & 3 ) His language . I have read each & every story at least 20 times & still the fascination endures . It is beneficial for every human being to read it . If not for the sheer pleasure than for the learnings . What do you learn ? The beauty of the English language . The way a brilliant brain works. How can you become more observant . How can you become more rational . Several scientists have decoded Holmes' way of thinking & plenty of neuroscientists have concurred that his method of thinking is excellent as backed by the latest research . Want some creative ideas ? Daydream over the problem suggested by Tony Buzan " Its quite a 3 pipe problem " - The Red Headed League . Want to problem solve ? First gather data THEN start thinking about it . Quite like David Allen's natural planning method of CCORE . Capture , clarify, organise, reflect & engage - all the better with mind maps . " It is a capital mistake to theorize before you have all the evidence. It biases the judgment" A Study In Scarlet . Want to know the # 1 secret to success according to Roy Baumeister - one of the top 100 most influential psychologists alive today .It is Hard Work . "They say that genius is an infinite capacity for taking pains" A Study In Scarlet . It is astounding how brilliant Sir Doyle was to have untuitively understood so much . Finally I end my review with envy . Yes envy for the person who has still not met the austere figure in his digs at 221 B . If there is cerebral heaven on earth - it is here !
