In The 4-Hour Chef, Timothy Ferriss goes into great detail of the DSSS formula and gives detailed examples of how it works for learning any type of skill, from languages to dance to Judo to cooking. Although technically a book on cooking, the first sections of the book are devoted to "meta-learning," or how to learn any skill rapidly and effectively. This alone is worth the price of the book, but for those of us who eat multiple times per day, knowing how to prepare healthy and delicious meals is also a worthwhile skill set to have.
