4-Hour Chef by Timohty Ferriss
You’ll learn more than just cooking in this Tim Ferriss book. It is a very interesting account of how he learns new information quickly. All manner of things can be broken down into meaningful most used chunks of information, not a new concept but the way it is presented is engaging and intriguing. Ferriss uses this method to learn all manner of things from languages to learning how to shoot a basketball. You may learn a few things too along with a his unusual recipes. I highly recommend this book.
