Book Description

The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life builds upon Timothy Ferriss's internationally successful "4-hour" series by transforming the way we cook, eat, and--most important--learn. Ferriss, nominated as one of Fast Company's "Most Innovative Business People of 2007" and Forbes magazine's "Names You Need to Know in 2011," is author of the #1 New York Times best sellers The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Workweek, the latter of which has been translated into 35 languages and has been on the New York Times Best Sellers list for more than four years unbroken.

Featuring recipes and cooking tricks from world-renowned chefs, interspersed with the radically counterintuitive advice Ferriss's fans have come to expect, The 4-Hour Chef is a practical but unusual guide to mastering food and cooking, whether you are a seasoned pro or a blank-slate novice.

Beyond that, it is designed to be "the cookbook for people who don't buy cookbooks." The 4-Hour Chef will teach Ferriss's approach to learning any skill in minimum time, which is what his 1,000,000+ monthly blog readers have most requested he write about for nearly five years. Readers of this new book, using food as a vehicle, will learn the art and science of meta-learning--the skill of learning skills.

Last but not least, this book also refines and showcases the very best recipes and hacks based on Ferriss's The Slow-Carb Diet, which hundreds of thousands of his readers around the world have tested for performance enhancement and fat loss (many have lost 100+ pounds since December 2010).
