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.
Loved it. I want more! The swimming story is particularly encouraging because it also addresses a long held fear.
Business major 9-5 in the nonprofit world and after hours entrepreneur.
The content of this lecture is good. But just be aware that it is not all Tim speaking. There is audio from a video at the beginning and then a lot of question-and-answer at the end.
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.
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.
Not a fan. This was like listening to C3PO's douchey brother talk about how easy it is to learn languages and that he learned Bocce in only two months. Ohhhh ahhhhh.
"Classic Tim - super technical & methodical"
The headline says it all. If you like tim and learning. You'll love this short digestible little morsel. Top work as always Timothy.
"if you like Tim Ferris, this won't disappoint"
if you don't know who tim is, this is a great introduction. would definitely recommend!
"Clearly better watched as a video"
The first 4 min are actually a short movie which could have been skipped as we cannot understand what is being showed.
Then Tim shows lots of slides that are not all explained verbally.
Overall still quite interesting about his technics on learning languages.
"Meta learning with Tim"
A great insight into an extremely interesting and successful dude!
Gives some key elements to language acquisition and other meta learning skills...
