Maria Konnikova: Sherlock Holmes

Screen Shot 2016-01-25 at 09.05.09

This week I’ve been reading The Confidence Game by Maria Konnikova and watching BBC’s Sherlock with Cumberbatch and Freeman.  Konnikova is my guest on next week’s show and while doing some very un-Holmes-like research I discovered that her first book was Mastermind: how to think like Sherlock Holmes! Not only that, but Konnikova has a couple of short videos videos about how we can harness some of Holmes’s techniques to better our attention and retention. The videos are from bigthink. Enjoy.

It's good to talk
