This is a video of a talk given by author and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss.
If you aren’t familiar with Tim Ferriss, he’s the author of “The 4-Hour Workweek”, “The 4-Hour Body”, and most recently “The 4-Hour Chef”.
The 4 Hour Chef isn’t a book that is only about cooking, although it does cover a lot of cooking skills…it’s a book that uses cooking as a vehicle to discuss methods of learning that make the process more efficient.
He covers a lot of ground in his books. One of the criticisms of the most recent book is that he covers too much ground…that he has too much to say and says it all in the book.
When you have a lot to say it’s hard not to say it all.
But I’ve heard him say that he cut about 250 pages from the most recent book…so apparently he’s not saying everything he could.
He’s an interesting character. The focus of his life seems to be learning… and his books are all about sharing his methods for learning and for achieving.
There is a lot of substance to these books…and they may not be for everybody…but he says in the video that while the books may not always be completely relevant, the reader is going to be able to find at least a section that speaks to them.
The 4 Hour Chef is published by Amazon.
