For Sale: The Sherlock Holmes Handbook by Ransom Riggs

“My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don’t know.”

This reader’s companion to the casework of Sherlock Holmes explores the methodology of the world’s most famous consulting detective. From analyzing fingerprints and decoding ciphers to creating disguises and faking one’s own death, readers will learn how Holmes solved his most celebrated cases—plus an arsenal of modern techniques available to today’s armchair sleuths.

Along the way, readers will discover a host of trivia about the master detective and his universe: Why did Holmes never marry? How was the real Scotland Yard organized? Was cocaine really legal back then? And why were the British so terrified of Australia? Full of fascinating how-to skills and evocative illustrations, The Sherlock Holmes Handbook will appeal to Baker Street Irregulars of all ages.

Holmes Handbook

I loved this handbook and I also love this author. This book is for the more than casual Holmes fan but not for the expert Holmes fan. It is filled with interesting facts such as Sherlock never said elementary my dear Watson. The book is very high quality - the covers a beautiful linen red. It also feels heavy for its small size making it a joy to read.

Great little book!

the book was pretty cool when i got it. the only thing is the book was more informational, it wasn't how to to do this or that- it gave examples but they weren't good ones. other than that the book was a good read, i would buy this book if you want to know more behind the scenes of the Sherlock Holmes books and how he did it, its not how to be exactly like him, they give suggestions but not very good ones to where you can start from, its more of what it was like back then in his world, how they dressed, how to survive a waterfall, different guns that are now rare to find. Great book i would say its worth it in the end!

I have read all of the Sherlock Holmes stories. This book complements the stories well. The author does a very good job of showing the different methods that Holmes used to solve the crimes he investigated. Fans of NCIS or other investigative shows will recognize the techniques that where introduced by Sherlock Holmes. The author includes some interesting facts along the way like how Scotland Yard got its name. A good read for fans of the detective.

Fun for Sherlock Fans

This is really a fun book for Sherlock fans. The author has taken details from the stories and sort of deduced personality traits of the detective. Sort of an insight into the detective that can be surmised using his own methods.

Fantastic book! I read other books by this author ...

Holmes may be dated, but he is never boring. This text is pretty clear, easy to read on my tablet.
