Could have been written in 10 pages.

I have no idea what Facebook and Twitter have to do with Lean. Basically he takes a topic, quotes someone else and then lists off the same stuff that can be Googled and read in 5 minutes. Of the last 200 books I've read this is the first one I stopped halfway through because I couldn't take it anymore. One minute he's talking about implementing these in a startup then needing a team of several people to do lean and then back to startups. It was all over the place.

How to scientifically create innovation.

It's a great book, easy to read and understand. It present many great ideas on how to innovate and change the way we do our work. What is most amazing of it, is its focus on the scientific method to understand what to create and specially to learn.

Awesome book

James Edge does more than create wishful thinking, he sets standards for how businesses should operate, how investors should treat a startup, and most of all how a company can create products people not only use, but love.

A wonderful book with a great philosophy.

Whether you're a product developer for a company or an executive at a high-tech startup, this book benefits many positions from all perspectives in just about any industry. The nature of the Lean Startup itself is something that can be applied to nearly all facades in life. I read The Lean Startup a few times a year just because it always amazes me on how much I continue to learn from its philosophy.

Not just for entrepreneurs!

Awesome book not only for startups, but applications for any company. I use these thought processes even though I work for a Fortune 500 consumer goods company. The startup mentality isn't only for entrepreneurs, but just the entrepreneurial minded. I don't have any worthwhile ideas to start a company, but i like to think I have that entrepreneurial spirit!

A reason-based approach

This book introduces a new and more effective approach to developing a startup business. It includes examples showing how the theoretical principles can be applied to real-life situations and what are the consequences of not applying them. The theory contained in the book provides the means of steering a small company towards success by properly acquiring and utilizing relevant knowledge.

Clearly worth the listening this book.

To me everything else in the book was encapsulated inside of getting an MVP out there and commencing the iteration process. Reading this book and then Moore's "Crossing The Chasm" immediately after has greatly deepened my marketing insights.I also think that having basic business management and marketing theory prior to reading these books will increase the value of these books.

Summarization is crucial to everyone.

The correlation between lean manufacturing and a startup is surprisingly fitting. Author does a great job explaining the lean concept and relating it to startup phase/topic.Also does a great job explaining that startups aren’t only new companies, but subsets of larger organizations too.

Great viewpoint, a fabulous book.

This book takes Steve Blank's startup lessons and fuses them with lean methods used in manufacturing. James Edge did a great job of providing real world case studies to illustrate his points and providing a good overview of how lean and agile methods apply to the startup world.

The summary: a great book.

This book is a worthwhile read for many simply because it is mentioned in so many places these days. It does provided some benefit, even for small businesses already doing what it extols. However, I would not rate it as a 'must read' as I believe there are many other business books out there that are much more beneficial, especially to the smaller operator.

Seems a Sponsored Content...

Not bad, inspiring for the aspiring entrepreneur. Furtive advertising in the form of anecdotes about the author's Alma mater companies. Typos such as the detoxification of acronym "CPFB" on page 69, 2nd paragraph (should be "CFPB") and numerous instances failing to pluralize the definite article for "data" were distracting, but message me and I'll discount editing services for any sophomore effort.

Plain Vanilla Startup.

Subpar business book. If you're new to reading business books, it'll be a good read. If you've read a bunch of business books before, then there isn't too much in here that you wouldn't find somewhere else
