      Pretty sure this is my favorite of the Pop Culture and Philosophy style books that I have read. The essays were all well written, the topics reasonably varied (helped along by the depth of source material), and suffused with love of the character and world that Conan Doyle created. If you haven't read Sherlock Holmes stories in some time, reading this will make you want to go back to see more than just what clues you missed the last time around.
