I'd heard a lot about this book, and since I'm planning on setting up my own company soon, I decided to have a listen. The content is great, but the reading is honestly a bit dry. Still worth it if you're interested in the subject.
This book is a valuable addition to the conversation about sustainability for companies of all sizes. It draws on the best of our theoretical heritage and adds great examples of modern application. Even though Eric (Ries) presents a number of models and formulae for following this path to success, he wisely warns against wholesale adoption of any single approach. The power of experimentation is the key to long term sustainability.
The author presents some good information for entreprenuers. However, he ends up focusing on corporate entrepreneurship for my taste.
Awesome, changed the way I handle my project in a medium sized company. As a middle manager having something like this to point to and use as backing to keep my team agile and lean is a god send. Well written, not a bunch of buzzwords like most business books. Highly recommended.
There are so many important and key facts in this book. It is the Bible of technology start ups and innovation inside large companies.
