Genius. Renaissance man. Iconoclast. Master of detection.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle funneled much of his real-life genius-and the brilliance of others around him-into Sherlock Holmes, creating a character greater than the sum of his parts. In this quirky and intriguing look at the traits that made Sherlock Holmes successful, David Acord explores how to unleash our own genius.

Not only does Acord give unique insights into the character of Sherlock Holmes and his creator, but you'll also discover:

-How to cultivate a passion for definite and exact knowledge that will help you achieve your goals faster than you thought possible
-Why focusing on the little things is one of the most overlooked keys to success
-The value to knowing what other people don't know
-Why you should step up and take credit (death to modesty!)
-The importance of admiring your enemy
-Why we should all have friends in low places



"From Columbo to House, Sherlock Holmes remains the standard to which every great investigative mind is measured. David Acord harnesses this deductive well of information by exhaustively combing through the adventures of Sherlock Holmes for the priceless nuggets of advice that would be lost otherwise.... Many books have been written on the lessons learned and taught by presidents, generals, and captains of industry, and the Success Secrets of Sherlock Holmes deserves a place in their company."
-Brian Blocker, Suspense Magazine
