Public School Classrooms Benefiting from your efforts:
Tim Ferriss has selected Rally.org to manage the sale of his books. $6 of every book sold via Rally.org will go to DonorsChoose.org , helping public school classrooms across America. Here are a few testimonials from teachers who this project will helping out:
"I teach 20 students in Texas. There are wonderful students who need hands on materials to learn many of the concepts in First Grade. Many of the students I teach are at risk and come from economic hardship. Many of my students are on subsidized lunches. Their young parents work two jobs to afford to pay the bills. Many of my students deal with emotional problems due to divorce in the family. Many of my students struggle to complete their homework because of the lack of parental support. Help me help my students."
"I am a high school special education teacher in New York. I teach underprivileged kids in an impoverished area. These kids are mainly from the less fortunate New Yorkers. They need to come to school and learn in an atmosphere that is not only beautiful but also encourages them to learn."
"My students are facing a major milestone in their lives transitioning into adulthood. Students with special needs spend more time in High School than that of their general education peers in that they exit the school system at age 22. Their ages range from 18-22. My students have made the decision to leave the High School setting at the age of 18 to build on their functional, life, and vocational skills with me on an adult campus. Our focus is on building independence to prepare them for jobs, college courses, and how to take care of their needs. My students are at a crucial part in their life were they making decisions that will affect their futures. They are building a sense of self and finding their niche in life."
If you crossed Jason Bourne with Julia Child, you'd end up with Tim Ferriss." -- Marco Canora, Chef-Partner of Hearth & Terroir
"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
WHAT IF YOU COULD BECOME WORLD-CLASS IN ANYTHING IN 6 MONTHS OR LESS?
The 4-Hour Chef isn't just a cookbook. It's a choose-your-own-adventure guide to the world of rapid learning.
#1 New York Times bestselling author (and lifelong non-cook) Tim Ferriss takes you from Manhattan to Okinawa, and from Silicon Valley to Calcutta, unearthing the secrets of the world's fastest learners and greatest chefs. Ferriss uses cooking to explain "meta-learning," a step-by-step process that can be used to master anything, whether searing steak or shooting 3-pointers in basketball. That is the real "recipe" of The 4-Hour Chef.
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.
