I was incredibly impressed with the quality of this audio book. I’m always a little wary when an author decides to narrate their own book - even if the content is great, poor narration will ruins any audio book.

Fortunately, Eric Ries delivered an impeccable narration performance, with excellent pacing, good valence shifts, and even different voices when quoting other people. He also includes several fascinating interviews with business leaders, and it made for great listening.

Regarding the content itself, I wasn’t sure how relevant it would be to me. In my day job, I’m basically a middle-manager, and I run a small business doing consulting work on the side. It turns out this whole book was perfect for me - great tools, clearly articulated principles, and useful actions I can take to move forward both in a bigger company and with my own work.

I think this book is incredibly useful for anyone interested in business, lean start up, and how to bring about positive change at any level of the organization.

Highly recommended!
