I thought the concepts were very helpful to understand what it is to be a lean startup. Easy to follow and understand, the trick will be around implementing it in your context
Excellent book for startups early on. In can really help point you and your team in the right direction of how to best measure and track your progress among another dozen things.
I really buy into what Eric is saying about how the future of innovation can be so much better and how it can prevent so much waste of people's time and effort. Build, measure, learn!
Well, this is my first time listening to audio books, and it was a great experience. The narrator is good and I learned a couple of great lessons of does and dont's in my upcoming projects.
The approach is sound, but can it over come existing prejudices and practices to become common place in 21 century business. It certainly requires humility on the part of the entrepreneur.
This book is a must read for any aspiring entrepreneurs. However, it's probably best for those who have been involved in these types of activities in the past.
He is basically selling his consulting services
Interest in concise summary not a long pointless examples.
Nope - Dull book this should have really been a blog post not eight plus hours of book.
More recent case studies, a different reader & writer
Reader was flat. I actually dosed off twice while listening thankfully I was not driving.
No & I wish getting a refund was an option.
The book was overall a great read and worth the money if I had paid for it. This was my first audio book so it was free. I was hoping to get a little more information for becoming a successful entrepreneur out of this book, but I found that it had a lot of review with lean manufacturing concepts and tools that I already have quite a bit of experience due to my career in engineering. This would be a great book for someone with a business or marketing background with little or no experience in manufacturing. I still learned some good concepts and notes in the book that I have written down for a future reference in the years to come. Eric is a good reader and flowed through the book very well.
