The 4-Hour Chef has been used by readers to learn almost any skill imaginable. The subtitle of the book is key: “The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life.”
4HC shows you how to model the world’s fastest learners to double your learning potential. The approach applies to music, language learning, sports, and just about everything in between.
Said it once and I’ll say it again: 4 Hour Chef by @tferriss is the best book on learning that I’ve ever read.
