Review: MasterMind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

MasterMind: How to Think Like Sherlock HolmesMasterMind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes by Maria Konnikova
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I love Sherlock Holmes. I wanted to love this book, too, and expected I would at least like it, based on the blurb and the subtitle. The author obviously loves Holmes, too, which saved this from being a one-star review, because I did enjoy the excerpts from Doyle’s stories. Regardless, I gave up about a third of the way through because the book was just so padded and I didn’t care enough about thinking like Sherlock Holmes to continue slogging through it.
