The Lean Startup

The Lean Startup

Another book about startups.

Customers don’t see how much time it takes to build something. They only care if it serves their needs.

This book explains one way to approach building your product.

Just like the name suggests, it starts with something small, which will be reiterated many times and continuously improved.

Highly recommended if you want to start building something.

If you are copying from someone, you aren’t learning from them. You’re not innovative and always behind.

This book sprinkles a lot of ideas and concepts about how you can build the future.

It contains a lot of questions throughout the book that can help to refine your idea and hopefully eventually succeed.

Worth considering upfront whether your idea is something you want to pursue or not.



Dan Lyons tells his story about joining a startup after working 25 years as a magazine writer.

It’s not so much about what you should do or what you should not do. Instead, it’s a personal tale, which gives you an introduction to the startup culture. It’s perks. It’s upsides. It’s downsides.

Every reader can extract its benefits out of it. I found it to be brilliant.

I wish that there were more books like this one.
