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.

Great talk Tim and very useful information thank you. I would of liked a break down of your 8 metric questions for language learning. Anyone know where I can find more info about this? thank you.
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.
A great insight into an extremely interesting and successful dude!
Gives some key elements to language acquisition and other meta learning skills...

"It's free on YouTube"
I love Mr ferriss' work, but this is better on YouTube with visuals and free.
Tim Ferris always strikes me with a raw sense of originality. Tim is the Bruce Lee of learning and simplification.
"Good stuff; but is a retread "
This is a talk Tim gives a lot, but the end q and a is what differs. if you have ninety-five cents, and you like Ferriss, get it.
"too many references to visuals"
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.
"The Best Substitute For 10,000 Hours"
Loved it. I want more! The swimming story is particularly encouraging because it also addresses a long held fear.
"Good lecture, not all Tim."
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.
"Memorable Instruction !"
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.
"Key Points of Four Hour Chef"
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.
"Great ideas and inspiration"
Skip over the first ten minutes, the interview starts a little bit later. Tim Ferriss is a very knowledgable and inspirational person. Great talk!
