So, J.R. Jones wasn't too crazy about the new Sherlock Holmes movie.

Perhaps director Guy Ritchie and Robert Downey Jr., the latest of dozens of actors to portray the supersleuth on film, should have taken some tips from The Sherlock Holmes Handbook: The Methods and Mysteries of the World's Greatest Detective, recently published by Quirk Books ($16.95).

The book is divided into three parts. Under "Detective Skills" you'll find topics like: How to Locate a Secret Chamber, How to Examine a Body at a Crime Scene, and How to Crack a Safe.

Among the subjects in "Survival Skills": How to Outwit a Criminal Mastermind, How to Fake Your Own Death, and How to Survive a Plunge Over a Waterfall.

And under "Life Skills" you'll learn: How to Stage a Dramatic Entrance, How to Deal With Women, How to Keep Your Mind Sharp, and, interestingly enough, How to Raise Bees. (Maybe what the movie needed was some bee-raising scenes.)
