Extensions off of these topics, including examples from the book itself of how these men are the perfect mystery solving duo are as follows. The two work in different ways, one is layed back when the other is exact, but they have come to both being precise in their work as well. Holmes works very exact, he is a passionate leader and worker.In the book you can tell Holmes is a very precise worker by the way he spends his time analyzing clues.

Joseph Bell as they were polar opposites. Bell, like Sherlock Holmes is a man of deduction and observation; where Doyle is a man of scepticism and spirit. Bell’s logic and reason is the inspiration of Sherlock Holmes: “[Dr. Joseph Bell’s] strong point was diagnosis, not only of disease, but of occupation and character… he often learned more of the patient by a few quick glances than I had done by my questions”(Doyle Bio) a recollection explained by Doyle in his biography, occurred among Bell and a patient, where without speaking to the man was able to conclude that this man was indeed a soldier considering only his body language and mannerisms.

Chinatown gives us a lovable, flawed, and haunted detective, watch him give it all, and the it forces us to watch as the world breaks him down, teaching us that at any moment, everything we work for and hold onto could be lost, regardless of how hard we
