One of the book recommendations this month is The 4-Hour Chef: Learning Anything by Timothy Ferriss. In his book, the author shares the joy of learning and describes a process of deconstructing anything we wish to learn into its basic components by interviewing the outliers who excel at that particular task. He then breaks down the learning into the 80-20% most critical and sequences the 20% into a pattern we can easily learn, practice, and remember. Lastly, he creates incentives to stick with it until it is learned. In his book, he uses cooking as his metaphor to show how the process works and in the process teaches us how to cook like a chef…a great, fun read!
