A Study in Deduction


Hey friends! For a while now, my own personal tome The Monographs has been topping the Amazon charts with 5* reviews all round. My writing style is not conventional at all, I have always tried to keep everything as jargon free and focus on the work that matters, the important things. The detailed studies in The Monographs speak to that nature.

To get your copy of The Monographs please follow this link 

I mention this because I also give tuition via Skype. Lessons consist of everything in The Monographs but much more indepth and with new training techniques and tests to track your progress on the road to becoming a Deductionist yourself. 1 on 1 help for creating your memory palace from the ground up, reading people and catching lies and solving puzzles where’ve they lie. Check out the video below to hear what one of my skypers has to say

Recently I have also been working on taking these Skype lessons to the street! You heard me! Live training from the comfort of your own living room!…or wherever it is you use Skype. So after a time of developing your skills, you will be put to the test in all manner of genuine locations, to be able to deduce all manner of tasks from the smallest item carried in someone’s hands to possible suspects in a robbery. 

So if beginning your quest to unleash the Sherlockian within you is something you’d like to do, or if you’d just like to improve your memory skills then email me or private message me and we can start your course today.

Just deduce it team!

The Monographs – Why you need one!

  

   
For quite some time now, I have been working on a book of Gargantuan proportions. I am pleased to say that it his now here, available for purchase. To brighten up your days you can purchase yours from either Amazon or The Book Depository.

The Monographs can be explained in simple terms, that it is a manual that anyone can use to make themselves into a modern day deductionist. However, it is so much more than that. It is a book full of transferable, real world skills. Once you have studied and mastered all this book has to offer you will memorise as much as you could ever need or want to, with all the retentive capabilities that the famed detective has, read people, situations and scenes as easy as books. Detect lies in everything, right down to handwriting. Deduce clues in the objects people own and the clothes that they wear. History, theories, research, how to train and practice. It is, for want of a better phrase, a complete compendium. Make no mistake though, and I try not to mince my words when I say that these skills WILL need practice and these are NOT attributes that you can pick up overnight. I promise you this, you put in the work and you will reap the massive rewards!

It has only been a few days since its release date but the reviews are in and I am so proud and humbled to say that they are all 5 star reviews! Follow the link to see for yourself and pick up yours today!

Read the reviews in full and pick up your copy here!
If you want to keep up to date with all things Deduction based then find me on Facebook and Twitter as well! Links are on my website.

Have a good one!

Thoughts of the day : Popular deductions within today’s society

Evening all!

With The Monographs just around the corner, I thought I would throw some interesting tidbits your way on what some consider ‘Gold’ when deducing. How would you go about deducing someone’s job. How would you know details about someone’s vocation, without having to ask them? To get the full work on this, follow this link 😉

Indiegogo link

For now, here a few ideas to get you started that are in essence, quite simple. The knowledge database you have stored away in your own Palace needs to be vast. For the simple fact that you can’t get to answer if you don’t have the information to utilize. So, get to know as many jobs as you can and more importantly what some of their attributes are. For example:

  • Indoor workers will have very little, if any coarse and worn skin.
  • Builders do very little paperwork
  • Teachers gravitate toward the cheaper end of smart wear.
  • Students carry backpacks and satchels, whereas the more business minded job requires a more formal carrying device.

The lists really do go on and on.

main-qimg-87863dd8c10295abcc7e1b97d93011bcLogos and emblems can be and incredibly handy helper when out working these techniques in the trenches. Knowing the difference between the Personal trainers and the salesmen, the care workers and the driving instructors. This can be more than enough information to get you well on your way to success and is an idea that is so very often overlooked. I can’t tell you the amount of people i have spoken to/taught the deductive arts to over the years who simply just don’t think about something this simple. Even some of the logos of jobs that aren’t even for companies in your country. There is a very simple way to practice this, and in todays world it is quite simple. There are hundreds of logo apps and quizzes available on almost every device on the market. Search them out and practice.

These are transferable traits and ideas to all manner of deduction. Attributes, and tells as it were, can be found in anything. Look at the photo above.

  • None smokers will have no discernible tobacco aroma, no paraphernalia clogging up their pockets, no need for consistent breaks at work, healthy skin (thats if they aren’t a drinker), No visible tobacco stains on the finger tips and on the clothes.

Everything has a trait and everything has a tell, the small details are what is key! Now much in the same way that body language becomes more reliable when you observe a cluster of tells pertaining to the same thought, this same is true of the objects and in this instance, figuring out what someone does for a living.

Have fun practicing team!

Now CALLING ALL SHERLOCK HOLMES FANS, record breaking collection of incredibles tales coming your way soon! Not from yours truly, but, it is going to be mind altering, trust me!!!
