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.
When I recently asked my 400,000+ Twitter followers, “What skills have you learned with (or using) The 4-Hour Chef?”, here were some of their answers, sent back to me within 90 minutes…
