  1. Timothy Ferriss is a web entrepreneur and motivational speaker His previous book is the Four Hour Work Week I can t speak to the first book, but in the case of this one, four hours appears to be a metaphor for a much longer unit of time Nearly every recipe in this book is bewildering I feel like this would be a good cookbook if you wanted to copy someone else s eccentricities one of which is needlessly complicating otherwise simple procedures Each recipe is laid out over 2 3 pages, with an abstr [...]

  2. What s up with this guy I m the type of person who loves information, loves an arcane tip or shortcut to success , but this guy is hard to take Within one volume he purports to teach mastery in cooking, language acquisition, fire building, wilderness survival, shooting, knife skills, and I teach 4 year olds Occasionally there s a child in the class who does not play well with the other children, preferring to interact briefly, sometimes destructively, with objects He cannot listen because he is [...]

  3. Note don t let my rating discourage you, this is a great book I just couldn t get full value out of it because I m a vegetarian thus eliminating the hunting butchering meat curating bits and most of the recipes and already know my way around the kitchen Hours and dozens of copied notes later, it is certain Tim Ferriss has done it again.This book is informative and visually stunning It s a result of relentless research, experimentation as always , and countless hours spent with world class chefs [...]

  4. Apparently I m not smart enough to understand this book I m a college educated guy, fairly decent cook, reader of all things chef food People give this book 5 stars, but for what It s a whole lot of nonsense about a whole lot of other things besides cooking He does a lot of plugging for his other books he s written while telling us how to reinvent the wheel with lots of menial everyday tasks And every once in awhile, he talks about cooking I don t get it And with the way he writes the book, I di [...]

  5. I have been waiting a long time for this book I wanted to know, most of all, how much was about cooking, and how much was about learning Interestingly, it breaks down to about 20% learning, 80% how to cook 80 120 pages are dedicated to learning, and the rest is about how to learn to cook, with anecdotes, quotes, and stories about learning sprinkled in That being said, the 20% on learning is very good and Tim has some great learning strategies to add add to your repertoire.This review is focused [...]

  6. Far and away the worst cookery book I have ever seen, wrapped up in endless reams of irrelevant, self aggrandising name dropping, and rehashed anecdotes from his website and previous books.Despite his insistence to the contrary, I can t say as I ve ever had any trouble following a recipe or finding a basic cookery book assuming I have obscure kitchen gadgets to hand Never, that is, until his bewildering list of must have items nobody in their right mind would expect to find in a domestic kitchen [...]

  7. In a lot of ways, this book is a gold mine In other ways, it s cocky as hell Part pep talk, part treatise on meta learning, part cook book, part bragging I keep coming back to bits and thinking they re great, and next year I fully intend to test the how fast can you learn a language enough to hold a decent conversation bit or maybe I ll have a go at learning to play chess in a way that isn t completely slapdash.The book is massive 600 big, colourful pages and split into five sections The first o [...]

  8. I m a long time Tim Ferriss fan and my life has been changed by all the books, so buying this in print and Kindle format was a no brainer for me I m not disappointed The meta learning information is an entire book in itself, and for anyone interested in self improvement it is a must read Breaking skills down into component parts, understanding the aspects that are under appreciated, understanding stakes These skills can transform something you want to learn into something achievable in a much sh [...]

  9. Ferriss is of a curator than an author His last exhibition book The 4 Hour Body, was a successful collection of ideas and theories The 4 Hour Chef feels scattered and thrown together His claim that you can become world class which he arbitrarily defines as top 5 % in the world at any skill in 6 to 12 months is ridiculous Ferriss has stated in interviews that he thinks the 10,000 hour rule is totally bogus The only problem is, it s been backed up time and again in study after study After plowi [...]

  10. Timothy Ferriss s latest book isn t so much a guidebook on how to become a chef in 4 hours It s about getting to an expert level at a variety of things in a short period of time using a variety of techniques From learning to build a fire by thinking in reverse to learning how to cook a gourmet meal in less time than ever before, The 4 Hour Chef has a lot packed into it.Ferriss is definitely a larger than life figure I had the opportunity to watch him facilitate his 4 Hour Life creativeLIVE work [...]

  11. Another great book by Tim I ve now read the entire book and tried 5 recipes so far which were all lovely I feel that a dinner party is a realistic prospect, this coming from someone who with the exception of breakfast only ever cooked for himself, unless it was a frozen pizza or some equally easy oven microwave dish.The sections on language learning are very interesting to me as someone who wants to learn Hindi I would recommend the book to anyone and if you like Tims other books you will not be [...]

  12. How I Heard About The Book Like most people, I knew about this books pending release via Tim and his blog but it was Ryan Holiday that hooked me up with a pre release advance copy of the book to check out prior to publication so I had something to chat about with TIm when he came on the PreneurCast show The Lesson Argument in Three SentencesEssentially the book is about deconstruction and learning, wrapped up in a chef s apron Tim has done an exceptional job via his blog and first two books, to [...]

  13. Some fun info and techniques and a lot of expensive gear and bragging, December 1, 2012By Vago Damitio First of all I liked the book and I recommend it It s fun and Tim Ferris shares some really great techniques and information It took me about a week to read it and during that time I ve made about ten of the recipes and they were good Plus, I learned some great cooking tricks which was what I was hoping to get from the book.Personally, I would have preferred that the book stuck to that Here are [...]

  14. I just skimmed this book and read the sections that interested me mostly recipes This is the 3rd book by Ferriss following the 4 Hour Workweek and 4 Hour Body I loved his first book about finding ways to hack your worklife to be efficient using the 80 20 rule, etc The 4 Hour Body was different all about Ferriss trying various things to improve his health following sometimes yet unproven theories That book talked a lot about adopting a slow carb diet In the 4 Hour Chef he continues his interest [...]

  15. i have bounced around this book a lot the META and DOM sections of this book are worth the 5 star rating alone the book is than a simple cook book it is a skill training system with cooking as the medium to show the reader how it is done i am way excited about learning language and speed reading now that i feel there is a way to stop the constant memorizationat said if you are looking for a cookbook this does a fantastic job describing every detail you need to find your way around the kitchen [...]

  16. I was not interested in a huge chunk of this book I don t particularly care to know how to shoot a deer, and I don t really wanna forage in the wild or make dinner in a hotel sink And chemistry gives me indigestion So I skimmed at least 50% of the book The other half was pretty interesting I liked the beginning, but I thought it was a little info dense Someone with ADHD like me might get confused and well, I really want to recreate Ferriss s learn a language in 8 hours thing but I don t think I [...]

  17. A fun, light read for a, I don t know, ten pound book.This book isn t going to make you a zen master or anything But it s thought provoking, and makes use of the best information on any given subject You re not reading about how to cook as much as you re reading the story of how I cut through a bunch of b.s and learned that this is a pretty reliable way for most people to learn how to cook How do you do that Ask the experts, basically, the right experts, not the naturals but the ones who had to [...]

  18. Bizarre, disjointed, full of the strangest mix of good ideas and complete nonsense, well thought out plans and odd misinformation It was like he just connected his word processing program to his brain and let it spew and didn t worry about whether it made sense, was in any particular order, or had anything to do with the ostensible topic of the book As to becoming a four hour chef he admits upfront that that s not going to happen, figures on a longer stretch, claims he s going to show you how, a [...]

  19. I think you have to have ADHD in order to follow this book I wouldn t recommend it to a novice cook or an experienced chef None of the recipes looked appetizing Some of the hints, like how to remove the skin from garlic and how to cut and onion were well done with pictures for each step I received this as a first reads giveaway If I had seen this in a bookstore, I wouldn t have bought it.

  20. tim ferriss what else to say like his style because it s pretty similar to mine view of things loved first part about learning and left most of the cooking part for the future

  21. I skimmed, not read Over 600 pages of WAY too much information that has absolutely nothing to do with cooking The author definitely seems full of himself.

  22. It is possible to become world class, enter the top 5% of performers in the world, in almost any subject within 6 12 months, or even 6 12 weeks I finished the narrative portion of The 4 Hour Chef The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life by Timothy Ferriss Book 32 of 182 671 pages narrative portion 101 pages Finished 3 6 2017.The 4 Hour Chef tells two stories one at the surface, and one down in the depths The surface story is Ferriss s journey from cookin [...]

  23. While I m looking forward to trying making scrambled eggs with different spices of each countries cuisine, what I will not be trying is tims advice in how to hunt, skin, chop up, prepare and cook a squirrel dish What kind of a cooking book is this It had grotesque pictures of people slicing open deer and bears and other wild life Shame on me for not realizing this was also a hunting handbook I know somebody has to do it but it ain t gonna be me And I sure as hell ain t gonna eat a damn poor baby [...]

  24. 8 Things I learnt from The 4 Hour Chef The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life Timothy Ferriss 1 Failure points Why people quit.I don t care why people pick up cookbooks I m much interested in why they put them down The hypothesis if I can address the primary, but often ignored, tripping points, I should be able to increase the number of people who eventually become master chefs.2 The Margin of Safety.In the world of cooking, I ll apply the margin of s [...]

  25. This book is almost too intimidating to read I got what I needed out of it, but I think I will continually look back over it for references just for fun My only issue is the author really seems to go on almost too many tangents, making it hard to track his thought pattern but it could be because he s just brilliant and I am just a layman laywoman It s chock full of a lot of extra information, which I know I didn t need to read and I certainly did not read it word for word , but all in all it wa [...]

  26. Read the first 100 pages, flipped through 400 pages of photos Wasn t really reading to learn to cook, but the cooking lessons and recipes were thorough and seemed fun.

  27. I d been wanting to read this cookbook for a while, which is already weirdI ve never read a cookbook before, not like this at least Long story short, I m really happy to own this one Tim s really made me care about what goes into my cooking, which is new for me, haha I ll probably keep revisiting this book for a long time, but I don t think I ll ever use most of itke cooking with liquid nitrogen, for instance P the mad scientist parts are weird To be honest, it s an expansive book, and it defini [...]

  28. I have learned that whenever Tim Ferriss swoops in on his flying thingamajig, it s best to climb aboard, because we re in for a wild, unpredictable, and unforgettable ride This book is thus far the pinnacle Some of the negative reviews seem to hinge on the fact that this is not, in the purest sense, a cookbook He goes over many recipes and techniques, but this is a book about learning, using the medium of cooking and food preparation as the means to that end I love the very Tim reassurance near [...]

  29. I ll preface this by saying I listened to the audiobook rather than reading this which I feel may have taken away from the experience I say that as someone who listened to the four hour workweek and wasn t too impressed but also as someone who read the four hour body and was impressed Put simply, it isn t surprising a book of this type doesn t translate well to audio.I enjoyed the start of the book related to learning, Tim makes these things sound far too simple, perhaps they are and as usual pe [...]
