Full subtitle: The simple path to cooking like a pro, learning anything, and living the good life. This book is in excellent condition. The cover has a slight touch of wear at corners, but otherwise seems almost as new. There are one or two marks on the page edges but internally the pages are clean, tight and unmarked, and almost as new.
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 best-selling 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, supermodels, and everyone in between, this "cookbook for people who don't buy cookbooks" is a guide to mastering cooking and life.
