The how-to book ’4-Hour Chef’ has an official trailer

Colin Joliat Alcohol & Food Editor

Timothy Ferriss, the author of “The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life,” wants to teach you how to learn everything you need to know in just four hours.

#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.

It’s ironic that a booke about how to do things quickly would have a 19-word title. I’m not much for self-help or life improvement books, but I willing to give it a shot if I can figure out how to learn anything in four hours. I’m trying to become a renasisaance man over here, so a little knowledge about a lot of things is essential. Plus, 4-Hour Chef has a pretty bad ass commercial, which can’t be said for most books. $21 for hardcover. $10 for Kindle.
