5.0 out of 5 stars Timothy Ferriss is so marvelous that it seems I can be on Top Chef just by learning his 4-Hour Chef book's instructions!, November 20, 2012
This review is from: The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life (Hardcover)
I have to confess that I have been skeptical, to say the least, of Timothy because his past books sound too good to be true. I mean, according to him, you can be both super-rich and have the most amazing sexual copulation parties that you could ever dream of only by reading his books! Wow! If only...if only...However, I think that The 4-Hour Chef is the real deal, homes. Whereas the other two books clearly sounded too good to be true, I fully believe that this tome is very practical and realistic, not filled with any self-promoting exaggerations, questionable "science" or sensationalism in the slightest. No siree Bob!

I truly believe more than ever that I could even be the next Top Chef (Hiya Tom and Padma!!!) just by absorbing all the radical awesomeness contained within this tubular book of cowabunga awesomeness. In just a very short read of almost 700 pages--double-spaced, so you know it's not really that long and more like 350 pages--I learned so much that I really believe I can cook like almost any pro that you see on the Food Network (I am, of course, talking about esteemed chef Juan-Carlos Cruz, the Calorie Commando). Let me give you some amazing examples of what I learned from this sweet, bodacious book.

I learned how to open up a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese dinner, and make it all by myself from scratch! Amazing! I know! Prior to reading this book, I would only be able to open the aforementioned box, but not do anything else with it! Sure, Timothy could have focused on more intricate cooking such as molecular gastronomy or at least julienning some vegetables, but I think that opening a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese is already quite high-class enough so never mind.

Also, I learned all about mixing iced tea crystals with water to--get this, get this--make my own iced tea. Hot da/m/n, lemme tell ya, hot d/a/mn! Before absorbing all the nuggets of valuable info in this book, I could only pour water into a glass and then drink it. Now, I know all about the complicated procedure of making my own iced tea. Thanks, Timothy, thank you!!

I urge you, naturally, to purchase this book because it is more credible than Timothy's prior books for all the reasons outlined above. Sure, you may not have that much money anymore because Obama is raising gas prices and making you more dependent on food stamps, but pawn whatever items you need to in order to purchase this book. You will not regret it--I guarantee it!
