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

Any Sherlock Holmes fan should have this in their collection. It gives a brief overview of both the brains, brawn, and personality of the greatest detective in the world. Just do not go around practicing Holmes' method of single stick and baritsu.

This book is a MUST BUY item for any Sherlock Holmes fanatic. I can't say it'll make you as intelligent as Homes, but it is most certainly an interesting read. It holds information that'll give you tips on how to look at very simple things in a much more exciting and complicated way.

If Sherlock Holmes doesn't interest you, then don't buy this book...because it is all about Sherlock Holmes' attributes, as the best detective (Doyle was knighted for writing the stories of an eccentric Holmes and an Army Surgeon Watson, needing a roommate after getting back from the Empire's Afghan War) that has still remained relative. Each of the observations about Holmes and Watson are reported on, are from (and accredited to) whatever story where Holmes said or did something that was of note to make him who he is...kinda like a Character Study from a 'Rich Man's Cliff Notes Guide.' I love the Sherlock Holmes mythos and the stories from Sir Conan Arthur Doyle and this is a lovely addition to my personal library.

A very good addition to anyone's Holmes collection as it provides a load of information not commonly known. I highly recommend this for anyone who likes Sherlock as it helps you dive deeper into the whole experience. Makes an outstanding gift for the right person.

Love this. Also learn how to defend yourself--by stick, sword, fist. Rules for Decoding, and finding hidden rooms. Lots of fun and I have only just begun reading it

Holmes, the man and his skills
