Warren Buffet's Building a Small Business.Because it focuses on the beginning stages of a business which are usually the most difficult. The book also helps as well to grow into the next small business level... Innovation Secrets of Steve Jobs with the focus is on innovation that improves the life of end user.

No! So much rich information that is important to listen in short 1 hour bytes in order to obsorb the information.
Would've liked to see the book to be focussed on startups in the true sense - not necessarily startups within Corporate companies, but on the person who goes from that bright light idea to turning it into a business from the bedroom or garage whilst trying to get funding - Huge Challenge!
I +1 Books.
I would recommend this book. Alone it's maybe not enough, but with "How To Get Rich" and "Personal MBA" it's a golden mine.
An implementation of the Lean Startup framework into the Eric's company.
When they asked they users about they product and the users didn't like it. They decided to create what users want and boom.
Work Smart - Earn Fast
You need this if you want to be a successful entrepreneur.
This is the only book I read by Eric but I imagine they're all just as good.
all of it.
Love this so much.
An avid learner and therefore, lover of non-fiction works, specifically about business, marketing and sales.
This is a great book, chock full of insights and useful ideas. It's without a doubt one of the best business books I've ever read. It's well written, entertaining, and most importantly, totally useful from beginning to end.
This turned on more "light bulbs" than any book I've read in the last 5 years.
Yes, this is very relevant to most work environments and credibly told with many interesting anecdotes
I think that the movement toward smaller and faster moving groups/companies is the next great innovation source coming. This book is something of a manifesto for that movement. The book is fine, interesting enough, but the ideas are crucial a must read for anyone interested in building a company/product in the 21st century.
There can be only one.
If you are starting a company and are trying to raise funds, if you haven't read or listened to this book, you are toast.
Yes.. It is helping me move on with my Startup that i was slow starting up.. waiting for perfection every step. MVP is something i learned about...learn along the way with Minimum Viable Product.
Non yet....but i heard "Good to Great" is also good
All the stories were interesting. I like how Ries was able to describe implementation of the method.
However, as a Product Manager, I feel that unless the business owner or the executive team is committed to the method 100%, the lean method will probably not work at all. I'm going to recommend this book to my CEO.
