  • Reviewer’s personal comments: If you are en route to becoming a next sherlock holmes, this book will never make you one, but it will definitely intrigue you for sure. The book will help you succeed in making you commendable in rapid assessment of the subject which will surely help in many cases such as business, marketing, partner selection and much more. The book is surely very successful in explaining what it wants to explain without creating any doubts. Remember this book will help you judge people but not feel them. Book has its limitations as the question of change in the character of a particular person as life progresses is not answered satisfactorily. I warn that humans are bound in the boundaries of its own creation but this won’t work on some who are boundless in their own characters.

The book performs excellently on proving a point about how we can only make best out of what we have but it somewhat fails in answering the question of expanding the boundaries. Overall it was a great read.
