Rated 3/5
This is a great little book of Holmesian trivia and techniques: a sort of How-to-be-Sherlock-Holmes manual. Sadly, it cannot give one a genetic predisposition to deductive genius!

Light-hearted and fairly slight, it should nevertheless be a fun read for both the Holmes enthusiast and the general reader.

Oh, and the particular hardback edition I have on my shelf is nicely put together, which adds to the overall bibliophilic experience.
