Audible Editor Reviews

Author Tim Ferriss has parlayed his self-experimentation into two mega-hit books including The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich and The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman. In this compelling presentation prepared for The Long Now Foundation Ferriss talks about the meta-skill of aquiring new skills and excellerated learning.

Publisher's Summary

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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "Gold"

    Tim Ferris always strikes me with a raw sense of originality. Tim is the Bruce Lee of learning and simplification.
