The book had some interesting examples, overall not enough substance and advice which concerns a new startup
Yes. Author breaks down what it means to be a lean startup from any level, large or small.
Eric's innovative management methods will save the world from it's wasteful ways!
No more "success-theatrics". No more "untested assumptions". Let's be informed and efficient!
I really enjoyed this book and immediately was able to identify and validate what I learned through this audiobook in my work-life.
I like business and sci-fi books.
Eric should have found a professional reader. Now he keeps over acting, making it feel almost silly from time to time.
I really buy into the lean thinking and to
I feel disappointed... even thou I think Eric has a point here.
I would recommend this to anyone driving innovation, new product or a new business model. The processes and concepts described make sense to anyone who has been through the lifecycle of businesses and in my case having been a consultant in the application of best practices such as lean.
Description of some of Eric's failures add a lot of
The challenge I now have is I want a printed copy or fieldguide so I can work through some of the ideas on a business plan I'm working on. Amazon should give a discount for buying the book on a second platform after having purchased in the audio format.

Rework, for its view of entrepeneurship.
Clayton Christensen books (cited by Eric Ries) shoudl also have unabridged audio versions.

Yes... up to a point. Toward the end it was very repetitive but the overall message is and how the author suggests approaching innovation was really what made the book fascinating.

Why is this book so important? We are getting into the era of small entrepreneurs, you are reading this you are most likely one. The biggest mistake small entrepreneurs do is that they fall in love with their idea, invest a lot of money, time and energy in it and most times fail. Worst of all, they dont learn from their failure.
This book is about how to quickly (very quickly), learn from your failures and change your strategy (if necessary) or just adapt and try a different take.
I started my company with 500 euros and in 5 months have 30k euros in sales. So yes, its possible to try something small with a Minimum Viable Product and test if your assumptions are correct before spending all your money.

This is a great approach to product development. The book is well written and the ideas put forward are clearly explained with examples.
it's my first audio book
Very clear voice - structured book, easy to follow
