The New York Times bestselling guide to thinking like literature's greatest detective

No fictional character is more renowned for his powers of thought and observation than Sherlock Holmes. But is his extraordinary intellect merely a gift of fiction, or can we learn to cultivate these abilities ourselves, to improve our lives at work and at home?

We can, says psychologist and journalist Maria Konnikova, and in Mastermind she shows us how. Beginning with the ?brain attic”?Holmes’s metaphor for how we store information and organize knowledge?Konnikova unpacks the mental strategies that lead to clearer thinking and deeper insights. Drawing on twenty-first-century neuroscience and psychology, Mastermind explores Holmes’s unique methods of ever-present mindfulness, astute observation, and logical deduction. In doing so, it shows how each of us, with some self-awareness and a little practice, can employ these same methods to sharpen our perceptions, solve difficult problems, and enhance our creative powers. For Holmes aficionados and casual readers alike, Konnikova reveals how the world’s most keen-eyed detective can serve as an unparalleled guide to upgrading the mind.

Maria Konnikova writes the “Literally Psyched” column for Scientific American and formerly wrote the popular psychology blog Artful Choice for Big Think. Her writing has appeared in Scientific American Mind, Scientific American, and the Harvard International Review. She is currently pursuing her doctoral candidacy in psychology at Columbia University. She lives in New York City.
