A Few Lessons From Sherlock Holmes

Farnam Street with an excellent post on Peter Bevelin’s new book, A Few Lessons from Sherlock Holmes. Nassim Taleb also wrote a review on Amazon of the book, in which he said: "We Sherlock Holmes fans, readers, and secret imitators need a map. Here it is. Peter Bevelin is one of the wisest people on the planet. He went through the books and pulled out sections from Conan Doyle's stories that are relevant to us moderns, a guide to both wisdom and Sherlock Holmes. It makes you both wiser and eager to reread Sherlock Holmes."
