The 4 Hour Chef
now available on Amazon.com
I’m not what you would call “a reader”. Almost every book I’ve read in my adult life has been a musician’s biography or a self-improvement book. So it is very rare that I would recommend a particular author.
That being said, look into Tim Ferriss! I’ve read all 3 of his books (Healthy, Wealthy and Wise), and I cannot speak highly enough of each one. We’ve mentioned him a few times on Gashouse Live (weekdays 5pm ET) and I’ve heard him mentioned on other shows on our station, so I think it’s time to show you what Tim is all about.
The 4 Hour Workweek has helped me automate some of the bullshit work in my day-to-day activities. The 4 Hour Body is currently helping me reach personal goals I haven’t been able to achieve in the past 10 years.
The 4 Hour Chef, while at first glance may seem like a cookbook, will teach you how to learn. Cooking is the medium Tim uses, but the book is a step by step guide on how to learn any skill. even if you have no interest in cooking, this book is extremely fun from beginning to end.

From meditation to supplement use, from caribou pecker to religion (not the same), from magic mushrooms to working with amazon publishing. It’s very long (an hour and a half) but if you’ve read any of the 4 Hour books, or have an interest in becoming better at anything, check it out:

And by the way, Tim has got an incredible blog too.
