Murder mysteries are, among other things, our most moral form of entertainment. - Orson Welles
Detective stories are fun and interesting, but as Adam Graham writes, they also have a lot to teach us about life.
Join podcaster Adam Graham on this fun journey through the annals of detective fiction as he examines the history and career of seven of the greatest detectives from literature, radio, and television. Along the way, he stops to point to the sometime surprising insights that these detectives teach such as:
- How to avoid cluttering your brain from Sherlock Holmes.
- How to form valuable opinions from Nero Wolfe.
- The importance of character from Dan Holiday.
- The proper use of anger from Columbo
- How to find courage from Adrian Monk
These detectives provide twelve timeless life lessons in a fresh and entertaining way. All I Needed to Know I Learned From Columbo is a must-read for any fan of detective fiction.
