“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 A random schizophrenic journey 2016年11月16日

I dig tim's books and really wanted to love this book because I love tim's approach to living and I love cooking. But I found myself getting severely agitated and frustrated about the randomness of topics that interest me none. I'm just skipping page after page waiting for it to get good again, but am of the mind that I only enjoyed the 200 pages that actually dealt with cooking. Bummed.

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.

评论者 J. Rubin - 已在美国亚马逊上发表

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is really multiple books packed into one:

- A book on how to learn anything with anecdotes on learning language, memorizing numbers, and more
- A book about learning how to cook the basics
- Two sections on very specialized cooking (one on cooking from the wild, one on molecular gastronomy)

As Ferriss notes in his introduction, the book is as much a tutorial as it is a collection of his notes through his learning process; but at times that makes the book read awkwardly, and I'm curious how many people actually care about learning the basics of cooking, and molecular gastronomy from the same book.

On the positive side, Ferriss is full of great stories and I laughed a lot while reading the book through. On the minus side, the material just felt haphazard or unorganized at times, and sections at a time did not appeal to me at all, which ruined the flow a bit.

平均2.0 星 Everything is too much 2013年12月26日
评论者 Stephen M. Fragale - 已在美国亚马逊上发表

I started out liking this book a lot and tried disciplining myself to not skip ahead and to read through the meta learning sections...and at first they were quite interesting but after awhile they became tedious and uninteresting and repetitive and worst of all I didn't learn much. It seemed overdone and almost to the point of arrogance that basically he can master anything.

The cooking sections are first I Was excited about and even tried a few of the recipes with varying success; this book could have been decent if he would have actually focused on the title of the book or just cooking but he reminds me of my 3.5year old son who can never focus on one thing for very long before jumping into something else. When he went off on his hunting spree that was when I finally gave up on the narrative and checked out a few more recipes and finally traded the book in to my favorite local bookstore. To be fair there were a few things I liked in the book, a few of the recipes and for example his topic of finding the perfect cup of coffee and all the nifty devices out there, I even purchased one and found it to be excellent. But overall too much was jammed into this book just for the sake of...just for the sake of jamming it in I suppose because I can't imagine he ever considered all this would be useful and informative to the reader...I also don't like books that ask me to skip sections.
