WHAT IF YOU COULD BECOME WORLD-CLASS IN ANYTHING IN 6 MONTHS OR
</>The 4-Hour Chef isn''t just a cookbook. It''s a
choose-your-own-adventure guide to the world of rapid learning.
#1 New York Times bestselling author (and lifelong
non-cook) Tim Ferriss takes you from Manhattan to Okinawa, and from
Silicon Valley to Calcutta, unearthing the secrets of the world''s
fastest learners and greatest chefs. Ferriss uses cooking to
explain "meta-learning," a step-by-step process that can be used to
master anything, whether searing steak or shooting 3-pointers in
basketball. That is the real "recipe" of The 4-Hour
You''ll train inside the kitchen for everything outside the
kitchen. Featuring tips and tricks from chess prodigies,
world-renowned chefs, pro athletes, master sommeliers, super
models, and everyone in between, this "cookbook for people who
don''t buy cookbooks" is a guide to mastering cooking and life.
The 4-Hour Chef is a five-stop journey through the art
and science of learning:
1. META-LEARNING. Before you learn to cook, you must learn to
learn. META charts the path to doubling your learning
2. THE DOMESTIC. DOM is where you learn the building blocks of
cooking. These are the ABCs (techniques) that can take you from Dr,
Seuss to Shakespeare.
3. THE WILD. Becoming a master student requires self-sufficiency
in all things. WILD teaches you to hunt, forage, and survive.
4. THE SCIENTIST. SCI is the mad scientist and modernist painter
wrapped into one. This is where you rediscover whimsy and
5. THE PROFESSIONAL. Swaraj, a term usually associated with
Mahatma Gandhi, can be translated as "self-rule." In PRO, we''ll
look at how the best in the world become the best in the world, and
how you can chart your own path far beyond this book.
