The 4-Hour Chef is a new book by author Tim Ferriss. Tim Ferriss is also the author of the 4-Hour Workweek and the 4-Hour Body. This time around the author is not teaching people how to work less or how to eat less. He is teaching them how to cook like a pro in a fraction of the time with all the success of those trained professionals. Well, the book sort of flows with the 4-Hour Body because the pro chef-style meals you’re creating are all acceptable on the Slow Carb Diet.

The 4-Hour Chef is about more than just cooking. The author and marketer teaches the reader how to work less, make more and learn a new skill in a fraction of the time. Yes, Ferriss wants the reader to buy his other books, but he shares many of the same concepts throughout all his books. The reader gets a small taste and either gets the concept and follows Ferriss like millions of others, or he wants to learn more and he buys another book.
