Maria Konnikova, a psychologist and journalist, believes we can, and she demonstrates how in Mastermind. Konnikova unpacks the mental methods that lead to better thinking and greater discoveries, starting with Holmes’ metaphor for how we store information and organize knowledge, the “brain attic.”

Mastermind delves into Holmes’s unique tactics of ever-present mindfulness, perceptive observation, and logical deduction, drawing on 21st-century neuroscience and psychology. It does so by demonstrating how, with a little self-awareness and effort, we can all use these similar techniques to sharpen our senses, solve complex problems, and expand our creative abilities.

Konnikova explains how the world’s most keen-eyed investigator may serve as an unrivaled guide to mind-upgrading for both Holmes fans and casual listeners.
