"Enlightening, though provoking"
Very interesting approach to a different entrepreneurial mindset. This is the definitive "how to" that gives you the right tools to focus your energy on.
Sometimes it can be a bit hard to listen to, due to a monotonous performance and sometimes a boring theme. But it's overall a great audiobook
a very good book besides first 2 chapters. line of the day: how great would this world be if we didn't waste effort.
"User centered software development"
Very informative. The main thing Ries discusses is the value of user centered development which was not what I expected but I'm satisfied all the same. Very software focused, but I guess that's the times...
Absolutely loved this book, great from beginning to end. The examples throughout were great and helped to explain the principles well
"Brilliant book, must read!"
Fascinating book, completely changed how I look at businesses. Opened my eyes to wider applications of lean principles. Contains a variety of case studies from different industries
Very helpful. A structured honest approach to the problems entrepreneurs face with their projects. Brilliant.
"science and business"
it is my starting point! I need to start doing experiments! Great book to read and reread!
A creative look at the startup industry. Tons of great insight and applicable learnings. Very technical at times but knowledge worth knowing. Thumbs up!
"Great insight & useful advice"
Great narration. useful advice which on hearing it seams common sense but in actual fact is completely the opersite to what most businesses do.
"Great ideas but..."
Eric's vision is really revolutionary in terms of product development and marketing. The lean startup approach changes everything. Everything that was so drastically implemented and seamlessly integrated in the industrial era by blue collar workers and then, in modern (yet rooted in past) corporations by white collar workers.
However, Eric fails to explain his ideas in a way that very small businesses could understand, apply and integrate. Much of what he said was not (yet... ;) applicable to my situation as a small startup and hence felt boring/irrelevant to me.
Focusing too much on large, already established businesses or even corporations I had a feeling Eric with his great ideas has actually never left "the aristocracy" of Silicon Valley.
For that I have to search elsewhere.
