Amazing book about sketch drawings, it was very easy to read, and the way it conducts you around the world with sketch is inspirational. Right as soon as I start reading I was full of ideas to draw, and at the end of the day I finish my first urban sketch in months, thats connection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best way to love more your LEGO bricks, March 31, 2014
This is a history book, full of little stories about the creation of this company called The Lego Group, and how from the beginning the mantra of "Only the best was good enough" is the real driver in the construction of this happy system.

You could have see the video of the Lego Story in you tube, and did know that they overcome 3 fires, and the difficult eras. But you would find in the Sara way of introduce you to Lego, that this is the best entrepreneur/start up motivational story. You have to do what you love to do, and you have to keep pushing your dreams forward.

This is not a child book, this is for all the AFOL (Adult Fans Of Lego) that want to know more about the Company.

This is the book to focus your strategy efforts on understand your primary target: the user.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be more, August 7, 2013
It's a short book, its easy to read. Saying that, this books cover only 2 things: help your presentation to be selected by a conference organization and keep your presentation more attractive and effective.

The 11 key points, are not easy to apply, and even the one that says that help to be a minority looks like there is no room for your presentation to stand up and shine. The other 10 ones are good.

The second objective: improve your presentation. I think it could be presented in a more detail version, and this book doesn't give new tips, or a really good way to apply them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Collection of Tools for the validation process, July 2, 2013
Is a book that spoke directly to the Validation Process that is the base of the Lean Startup movement. It gives you the necessary tools to create amazing and very complete Hypothesis and validate it.

You don't need to be a designer, just be very committed to improve you product or service. Improve, because this book applies not only to new startups but to existing products that need to validate new features and user assumptions.

A must get one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have, May 21, 2013
It not a step by step guide, and the only thing lean is the title, because is a great book about what is mostly forgotten by the entrepreneurs: real metrics
Sometimes we forget the reality and create our own worlds that are great to sell our dream, but have the rigth and key metrics is the most valuable thing and this book give us a lot of models to follow. A most have one.
