As the times accelerate and we face ever-more kaleidoscopic careers, a crucial meta-skill is the ability to learn new skills extremely rapidly. Tim Ferriss, speaking before a live audience at the Marines Memorial Theater in San Francisco, CA, September 14, 2011.

I really like Tim Ferriss' stuff but there were way too many references in this audio to visuals he's using in the actual presentation and the whole audio kicks off with several minutes of a visual presentation with no talking to tell you what's going on.
This is a recording of a presentation that Tim Ferriss did while working on 4-Hour Chef. It covers the highlights of his learning strategy, and has a great Q&A session at the end.
I really wish the slides were included as a separate download, because I felt like I missed a few things there.
At this time, there is no audio book for 4-Hour Chef. I felt like this was enough to get me going until I have time to read the book.
Tim admits that this is the first time he is presenting this topic. He is a little disorganized to begin with but if you know his books and blog you pick up on the topic quickly. The interview at the end is much better! For less than three bucks not bad but go to his blog or podcasts for free. You’ll much more information and entertainment there. BTW, The 4-hour Chief is a fun book to read in hard copy.
Well worth your time. With so much information and such a pleasant delivery I've listened to it several times. Each time getting more of Tim's insights.
The first 7 and a half minutes of the presentation is completely lost in translation from video to audio. After listening to the audio track of a 6 minute video presentation, Tim Ferriss is introduced. He speaks for around 50 minutes, and afterwards he does a Q&A. Everything Tim says is great, but a huge amount of the content refers to unavailable visual aids.
This is a lot like a Ted Talk, but without the body language and visual aids that make Ted Talks so engaging.
I was very disappointed with the failure in translation from video to audio. If the opening video and visual aids had been included with the audio, I would have been much more satisfied with the presentation.
