“Tim Ferriss distills kitchen wisdom like a rotary evaporator on power surge. The results are potent, lucid, and delicious.”
— Nick Kokonas, Co-Owner, Alinea, Next, The Aviary

“Wildly inventive.. [a] rangy, obsessive immersion in food and its many wonders. [T]he tools needed to learn to cook well can be deployed in every manner of endeavor, from skinning a deer to memorizing a deck of cards. The author distills them into minimal, learnable units and examines how to order the units so as to keep readers engaged in their endeavors. Ferriss is a beguiling guide to this process, at once charmingly smart aleck-y and deadly serious, and he aims to make readers knowledgeable and freethinking.” Kirkus Reviews

平均5.0 星 Great book with the right expectations 2012年12月10日
评论者 Mark Fenny - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 精装 已确认购买
Disclaimer: I am a real reviewer who actually purchased and read the book. I felt compelled to write my first review because I was annoyed in two ways: first, the clearly fake reviewers, second, the readers who came in with ridiculous expectations about the contents of the book.

Second disclaimer: I am NOT a Tim worshiper. The 4-Hour Workweek is a sometimes unethical pipe dream that a couple people writers imitating Tim have made money on. For most of us, it contains a couple tricks to be more efficient at our 9-5. The 4-Hour Body is a relatively interesting and fun book on fitness and diet experimentation. I learned a few tips and tricks from it and really enjoyed reading about his experiences. I have read most of Tim's blog and consider it a sometimes better alternative to "Life Hacker".

Those two disclaimers being said, this is a GREAT book if you come in with the right expectations. If you're looking for 600+ pages solely devoted to grocery shopping, prep, recipes, cooking and eating, you will not find it here. You'll find about 200-250 pages dedicated solely to such, and 200 more at least somewhat related--consisting of wilderness cooking and survival, great restaurants, 140 character recipes, and basic tools you need in the kitchen. At a macro level, the most useful cooking lessons are Tim's notes on equipment to have in your kitchen, his 10 easy recipes (most of which are really interesting/easy shortcuts), and the charts on spices that go with different countries. At a micro level, I picked up a few random tidbits from the 1/2-pagers on how to quickly defrost a steak, how to make the perfect cup of coffee, etc. The most important part of this section is that Tim teaches you HOW to cook, not just how to follow a recipe. The best part about his methodology is that he removes all roadblocks from the reader--the excessively expensive equipment, the hard to find ingredients, and the difficult cooking techniques are all put nicely out of mind with shortcuts and detailed pictures.

The rest of the book, in my opinion, is actually more interesting. The first section is about a hundred pages are worth the price of admission alone. It details a method to learn anything efficiently--Tim is merely using cooking as a MEDIUM to teach this method. I've started applying this first section to learning a number of skills already. As the middle sections are the ones devoted to cooking and wilderness survival that I detailed above, the appendix is related to random skills and interesting "life hacks" that you can learn quickly. Yes, these feel like last-minute additions but if one thing is clear Tim actually cares about his readers, why not throw in these interesting pages--they do not detract from the focus as they are part of the appendix.

If I can say one thing--buy this book. For me, I can see myself going back to it for years anytime I'd like to learn a new skill (be it with cooking or otherwise). If you want to learn HOW to cook taught in an unpretentious tone with easy to follow pictures, you'll find it here. If you're interested in shortcuts to learning complex skills, you'll find it here. If you just want to pick up a few cooking shortcuts, you will most definitely be delighted with this book. And lastly, if you are a fan of Tim and his other works, absolutely buy this book.

Lastly, a note on format, BUY THE HARDCOVER. I bought the Kindle as well since it was on sale for just $4.99 on Amazon and it does not even come close to comparing to the hardcover version. This book is meant to have pages cut out and marked up, its detailed color pictures to be seen, etc.

平均3.0 星 Zen and the Art of Just About Everything 2012年11月21日
评论者 Debra Eve - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 精装 已确认购买
Tim Ferriss tells you right off that this isn't a book about cooking, just like Zen And The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance isn't about Zen or changing oil. He'll teach you how to handle a knife and make a few interesting dishes, but mostly he takes you on a long, strange, self-indulgent, and sometimes useful trip.

What I enjoyed:

-- Ferriss's storytelling. He has a nice way with words: "Mangalitsa acorn-finished woolly boar tasted just like acorns. I was chewing on fall, clear as crystal, in a sliver of cured ham."

-- His emphasis on the slow food movement and local, organic farming. (But strangely, his "Clean 15" foods include sweet corn, which is mostly genetically modified.)

-- His language hacking tips, which are gold. I've always wanted to master several languages and found his methodology solid and logical.

-- The 140-character Twitter recipes from almost every country in the world: fun, simple, and intriguing.

What I didn't like:

-- Ferriss's tangential teaching style. At one point he goes from braising to English's 100 most common written words to kickboxing to chess to tango spins in order to emphasize the importance of selection and sequencing. It didn't work for me, because I often lost track of the original concept.

-- His foray in into survival and hunting skills, just so you can make your own venison burger. (If you want some cricket protein bars, however, you'll need to mail order the crickets.) This section could have been a separate book and might have been fascinating as a metaphor/methodology for learning entrepreneurial skills.

-- His unrealistic (for the busy person) science experiments, such as making arugula spaghetti using a syringe and flexible tubing just to avoid that dreaded white flour. (Though some of his cocktails in the same section sound delicious.)

If I were to sum up this book in one word, it would be "manic": excessively enthusiastic and somewhat disorganized. Ferriss is obviously a curious and driven guy. I came away feeling he gets satisfaction from the ability to tackle and master anything, but not joy.

平均2.0 星 The 4 Billion Hour Chef 2014年9月29日
评论者 abriggs1 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: Kindle电子书 已确认购买
I liked Tim's two other books and I still have a ton of respect for the guy. But this book is a failure. I'm an experienced cook and an obsessive foodie, but even I was completely overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information in this book. The whole "4 Hour" theme is supposed to be about whittling something down to it's most direct and simple lessons, but this book goes in the polar opposite direction. Most people can't cook and are confused about food because of information overload. This book contributes to this problem. If I was someone who wanted to learn to cook, this is the book I would pick up based on it's title. After reading it, I would be completely overwhelmed and confused about all things culinary. I would probably give up trying to cook forever. Tim has a wealth of great information, but the manic nature of this book makes you forget any good lessons he might have to teach under a rubble of sheer, mountainous volume. Reading this book all the way through is painful and seems to take a lifetime. I hope for his next book he can keep it more uncluttered like his last two books were.

平均5.0 星 and the presentation of concepts sometimes feels out-of-sequence such that it begins to read more like a magazine than a useable 2016年9月6日
评论者 Lance Dolan - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 精装 已确认购买
It's actually 2 books in 1.

The first part is a clever "learn how to learn." It's not exactly scientific in nature, and the presentation of concepts sometimes feels out-of-sequence such that it begins to read more like a magazine than a useable guide. For me, subjectively, this actually added to my enjoyment rather than detracted. I stayed curious and intrigued while reading this topic (metalearning) that COULD have been REALLY boring!

I'm writing this review 4 years after having read the book and can tell you that I STILL use some of the elements taught in the metalearning portion of this book.

The second part of the book is merely an example of "how to learn," with cooking chosen as the example skill. Really, he could have used any skill as an example (Gun shooting, archery, swimming, you name it). I personally don't enjoy cooking and so I didn't read this part of the book. However, my girlfriend has, recently, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a truly trustworthy culinary guide, I can't promise anything. If you're familiar with Tim Ferris and hoping for an enlightening read with new concepts, then I AM promising everything!

平均4.0 星 Definitely a worthwhile read on how to learn anything quickly, but... 2012年12月21日
评论者 Monica Main - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 精装 已确认购买
I did like this book. However, I don't remember the last time I got a 10 lb. book in the mail aside from the old school Sears catalogs or a hardcover Webster's Dictionary.

I appreciate why the book was so long since it includes a lot of "how-to" with recipes and other nitty-gritty information about food including how things are made (i.e. the process in which balsamic vinegar is made, how to kill a chicken, etc.). But, quite honestly, I didn't buy the book to learn how to cook. I hate cooking and I still do.

What I did like about this book would be about the first 100 pages or so that teaches you how to learn anything at super fast speed. This includes languages, dancing, cooking, or anything else you want to learn...and fast. Tim is the first one I've ever seen to illustrate that you not need to have 10,000 hours of practice to become good at or an expert in almost anything provided that you understand how the "crash course" methodology works and Tim puts methodology together for you.

And he explains it quite well.

What I wish he would have done was split this into 2 books where he could teach people how to cook in one book and teach people "how to learn anything in 6 weeks or less" in another book. I would have bought the 2nd book and not bothered with the cooking book at all. It seems that the cooking part actually got in the way. Just when he was getting into the swing of things with how to learn something at a super fast speed, he'd throw some cooking crap in there and I'd have to find myself skimming through it just to continue on with what he was talking about with learning faster.

I really did like his 2 principles of learning fast which are:

1) Failure points - addressing the tripping points and how to work to eliminate/overcome them. These are the points in which people give up on any endeavor because it's too hard, complicated, etc.

2) Margin of safety - picking the most important elements of whatever you're trying to do and making sure that if you choose well, even if your execution is off, you'll still be successful. He illustrates this by having you choose recipes well so that if you fail to make it even near perfect, the result will still be awesome.

He also makes it clear that if you are going to become successful in anything, you have to give yourself an ultimatum of sorts. If you fail, what are the consequences? People who have no consequences for not meeting their goals usually don't meet their goals.

He has some pretty awesome points on success that I've never read in any other type of book before, and I read a lot of success books.

For that reason, I recommend this book. Even if you have no interest in cooking, read the book anyway for the first 1/4 of it where you can really learn how to change your life through learning and becoming successful at anything you want to in the shortest amount of time imaginable.
