On the off chance that this kind of thing inter­ests you, Boing Boing is mak­ing avail­able a free audio down­load of Tim Fer­riss’ book, The 4‑Hour Chef. The book pitch­es itself as fol­lows:

You’ll train inside the kitchen for every­thing out­side the kitchen. Fea­tur­ing tips and tricks from chess prodi­gies, world-renowned chefs, pro ath­letes, mas­ter som­me­liers, super mod­els, and every­one in between, this “cook­book for peo­ple who don’t buy cook­books” is a guide to mas­ter­ing cook­ing and life.

The 4‑Hour Chef is a five-stop jour­ney through the art and sci­ence of learn­ing:

1. META-LEARNING. Before you learn to cook, you must learn to learn. META charts the path to dou­bling your learn­ing poten­tial.

2. THE DOMESTIC. DOM is where you learn the build­ing blocks of cook­ing. These are the ABCs (tech­niques) that can take you from Dr, Seuss to Shake­speare.

3. THE WILD. Becom­ing a mas­ter stu­dent requires self-suf­fi­cien­cy in all things. WILD teach­es you to hunt, for­age, and sur­vive.

4. THE SCIENTIST. SCI is the mad sci­en­tist and mod­ernist painter wrapped into one. This is where you redis­cov­er whim­sy and won­der.

5. THE PROFESSIONAL. Swaraj, a term usu­al­ly asso­ci­at­ed with Mahat­ma Gand­hi, can be trans­lat­ed as “self-rule.” In PRO, we’ll look at how the best in the world become the best in the world, and how you can chart your own path far beyond this book.
