I have read 3/4 of the book. Seems like a bible for startups. Author tackles both his personal story as well as criticism. Will complete soon. I especially liked the part on focus on quick experimental results (for his chat application) rather than big design with lot of assumptions.
So i finally ordered it and received my book within two days, thanks to amazon's fast delivery. In this book you learn about how to start a successful company, it involve lots of steps like How to test your idea before launching company by doing various kind of experiments on your business idea, then what to do if your company by any chance start loosing and even how to expend your company if you got enough growth in your business. For anyone who want to open a business in future and want to launch any website in future then must read this thanks and have a great day :)
I was In hunt of the books that will give me insights on my next steps towards becoming a product manager. I am looking for a career path change and this gave me a whole new insight on the new techniques and better ways to start building products and an approach to define product Roadmap.
the whole book is the story of writers start up on every page you will find IMVU (writer's startup name), author haven't given any tip trick or formula this book is as good to read but if you are making summary then it will blow away your head. not much useful if you are searching for tips and tricks
This book speaks a lot about the predictive approach to do better in process and innovation.
I like the way the book is articulated well with some of the failures and the pro-founding success stories by following lean-start up methodology.
I also see that the author goes little sentimental over the last chapter about the wasted resources. But, the way the chapters are arranged gives you lot of information and definitely ignites fire to follow lean startup methodologies to be successful by not wasting resources at the end.
