    One of My New Favorites For Business

    I Love this book! Being a designer and business owner, I am often given quite a few entrepreneurial titles as gifts. And sadly, most of them don't do much for me, in terms of advice and information I can put to use in my fashion design business. Eric Ries', The Lean Startup is a major exception to this however!

    I found so much useful info in this book that it made me feel like Ries may be one of the few business writers who actually "gets it" when it comes to being an entrepreneur. I've read probably eight books this year, and only The Lean Startup and Wisdom & Wisecracks For The Aspiring Business Owner (also available on Barnes & Noble now) by Will Estell have made me feel like authors of these type books could have been business owners themselves and get the issues that the rest of us face daily. Thanks for being "real"! I highly suggest this book.

    Not just for startups but for anyone working in business development

    Drawing on lean manufacturing and the foundational work of people like Steve Blank, Ries has created a methodology that enables you to learn from your customers, even when you have very few, so that you can quickly identify what they want and how to give it to them. this means you operate in lean fashion- with efficiency and with agility- to make the necessary changes before you've thrown the baby out with the bathwater. Good stories, strong lucid writing. It's a great book that will be resource for innovator and business development groups for decades.

    Motivate Venture Persevere

    This is a great book to read if you are interested in getting into the startup industry. If you have even a kernel of an idea, or just want to jump in and be part of a startup, this is a must read.

    It contains couple useful thoughts, but generally it's mediocre

    First half of book is good, second is boring. Eric Ries claims that is an scientific approach - it's not. It's practical approach, but definitely not scientific.
