Sherlock Holmes - The Case Study

I don't know anyone who doesn't know or like Sherlock Holmes. This sophisticated gentleman gained more respect and likeliness than any other know fictional detective regardless of how irritating, stubborn and sassy guy he is. Well, who doesn't like intelligent and witty badass boys? ;-)

 

Adam Frost and Jim Kynvin from The Guardian looked through Sherlock's adventures and ended up with impressive number of data presented in elegant infographics. Love them! To see all click here.

In honor of Caitlyn Jenner - trans reading list

 

I think it was very brave of Caitlyn Jenner to expose herself and to speak openly about her life choices. I guess she'll experience a huge amount of positive and negative emotions from all people around her, her family, friends, sport-mates, fans, strangers etc. Regardless of what people's opinions are I'm sure of my opinion that such a brave act deserves a huge respect. I was positively surprised to view the reading list created by one of the US bookstore with a list of books from, by and about trans people. In honor of Caitlyn Jenner. 

 

Here's the list preview - to view full list of books click below:
