    The Lean Entrepreneur moves us beyond this myth. It combines powerful customer insight, rapid experimentation, and easily actionable data from the Lean Startup methodology to empower individuals, companies, and entire teams to evolve their vision, solve problems, and create value at the speed of the Internet. Anyone can be visionary.

    What disappointed you about The Lean Entrepreneur?

    I loved the Lean Startup. While I've listened to the Lean Startup twice, I cannot bear to listen to the Lean Entrepreneur again. The authors have this awful habit of making lists upons list upon lists. Several times, I paid special attention to these lists, and tried to figure out what was the point of these special long lists. There was no point as far as I could tell, other than being space fillers and perhaps showing off the authors' expertise at making lists. This book contains a lot of useless opinions and rehashed concepts, and poorly illustrated case studies. If you get this book with the hope of further understand the concepts behind the Lean Startup, you will be sorely disappointed. If you get this book with the hope of being entertained or perhaps learning something, you will be equally disappointed. And since this is an digital version from Audible, you can't even use it as a doorstop. What a waste of time and money.


    Has The Lean Entrepreneur turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, since the Lean Startup is an excellent book. The Lean Entrepreneur is just a poorly conceived and poorly written book. If the authors were to write a book in another genre, it would be equally bad. They need to take a basic college writing course and learn some principles of good writing before attempting another book.


    What didn’t you like about Erik Synestvedt’s performance?

    Can't put a finger on it. But his performance in part 2 of the audio book was better than part 1.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It has a section here and there that was interesting. But these good parts were quickly drowned out by the authors' interminable lists.


    Any additional comments?

    I have no idea where the good reviews come from. Maybe they are from the authors friends?? I will NOT trust another book with so few reviews.
