So, I saw that the Tim Ferris Experiment was recently released. The concept of this show is that Tim spends 5 days trying to learn a new skill. I haven't seen any of the episodes (the iTunes link appears to be US only), but this seems to be exactly the kind of content that Less Wrong would be interested in.
A few questions:
1) Tim has already written about his accelerated learning techniques in the Four Hour Chef. Has anyone tried his techniques and were they effective for you?
2) Has anyone attempted accelerated learning based off another resource? How effective was it?
