Apart from taking pictures and programming I’ve recently re-discovered my love of reading. I often get asked what do I read, so I thought I’d share what’s currently on my reading list.
This weekend’s book is Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes which I picked up yesterday when it was released in the UK. It had rave reviews previously in the US, so I thought I’d give it a go.
So what’s the premise of the book? Well it’s mostly in the title. It explains how using a variety of techniques a person can achieve Sherlock Holmes like abilities of observation and intuition.
I’m currently half way through the book already and I love the writing style. Rather than being just a pure factual book, the author has a lovely way of presenting facts intermingled with stories. Definitely a fantastic read so far.
