Description & Features+

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  Chef.
  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  potential.   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  wonder.   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.
