    Review quote
    Have you ever wanted to think like Sherlock Holmes? Have you wondered how that "mind palace" or "memory attic" works which has recently been mentioned in Sherlock BBC's "Hounds of Baskerville", and which Doyle wrote of in "A Study in Scarlet"? Have you been impressed by the great detective's deductive powers and been envious of his abilities? Joe Riggs, who is sometimes called the "real Sherlock Holmes," has written a book to show us how we can do it, too. "It's time to learn some wonderfully mental things," he writes; and this is what the book offers us. It is a wonderful guide working with Riggs's own experiences, scientific discoveries and logical explanations in a way which is not at all patronising, but helpfully suggesting how we can become more aware, healthy and perceptible of our surroundings. Appealing to the reader, Riggs promises that everyone who finishes the book will be surprised by what they can achieve; and believe it or not, it is not an empty promise. Joe Riggs explains to us which devices he uses "as a Mentalist that can expand your mind-power, super charge your memory, heighten your deductive and observational powers, and transform the way you think." Yes, he offers tips how to build our very own mind palace and how to easily memorise large numbers ... or our shopping list. In addition, he explains how to read people by becoming aware of the mechanics of non-verbal communication. Remember Doctor Lightman in "Lie to Me"? Yes, that is exactly what we are talking about here; only that Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Lightman are fictional characters, whereas their techniques are very real and, let's face it, very cool. - The Baker Street Babes
