Entrepreneurial technophile, Cloud Computing evangelist, and wannabe dog whisperer.
Every time I start a new business, or plan a new product, I'm going to have a 'Lean Startup Guided Listening Day' for me and my team. This way, we can keep the lessons of Lean Startup at front of mind when they matter most. Practice makes perfect!
Everyone compares this book to 'Four Steps...', but Mr. Ries has packed a good amount of practical how-to takeaways instead of simply talking theory. It makes it easier to take the ideas and put them into practice.
At normal speed, he talks PAINFULLY slow. If you don't listen at 2X speed, you'll go mad.
This is a must-listen for any tech entrepreneur.
The book in sum: Create a minimum viable product, test often, iterate.
The punchline is in the first chapter and the author elaborates throughout the rest of the book.
My favorite thing about the book was that it gives plenty current real world examples.
As an entrepreneur I would definitely recommend this book.
Probably, there is a lot of valuable information (would get the paper ver so I can refer to specific areas)
The feedback loop to ensure you are building what matters
The author has some very good insights into business and how to change in a startup environment however the authors conclusions were inconsistent with his assumptions.
The enthusiasm of the narrator.
The author gave several real-world examples to illustrate his points.
It took so long to get to any useful information (wait! was there any useful information in this book?).
Don't waste your credits on this aweful book!

This is the most boring audio book I have ever downloaded. Yikes! I thought I was going to fall asleep.
