Think Like Sherlock Holmes

Maria Konnikova wrote a fascinating books called Mastermind: How to Think like Sherlock Holmes. Using the science of memory, creativity and reasoning, the author uses that famous deductive duo Watson and Holmes to illustrate how to use our minds well. Seeing versus observing. Mindfulness versus mindlessness.  She talks about how we can wake up our brains to use them more effectively and we can all use a little dose of wakefulness yes?
