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.
Great audiobook for anyone looking to learn more about meta-learning and how to learn more effectively.
Unfortunately, the first part of this audiobook makes reference to a lot of visual content, so a good chunk at the beginning is hard to follow.
Loved it. I want more! The swimming story is particularly encouraging because it also addresses a long held fear.
"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...
