I’m not going to detail a lot that The 4-Hour Chef (Hardcover link|Kindle link) covers, or the review would take 4 hours to read. So I’ve decided to condense my thoughts to a snack-sized format of 4 paragraphs. Here we go…
Timothy Ferriss’s latest book isn’t so much a guidebook on how to become a chef in 4 hours. It’s more 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 workshop and he not only talks the talk, he walks the walk. The 4-Hour Chef demonstrates this in spades.
After reading both The 4-Hour Work Week and The 4-Hour Body, I can safely say that The 4-Hour Chef resonated the most with me. The book has a lot in it to digest (pardon the pun), but it’s well worth devouring every word.
