A Million Little Bricks: The Unofficial Illustrated History of the LEGO Phenomenon
A Million Little Bricks: The Unofficial Illustrated History of the LEGO Phenomenon
by Sarah Herman
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.94
65 used & new from $1.80

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.

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.

Starting a Business: Learn What You Need in 2 Hours (A Crash Course for Entrepreneurs)

Edition: Paperback
Price: $14.82

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a manual but a good crash course, March 20, 2013
The book is such that what he preaches: a crash course in entrepreneurship, narrated by three serial entrepreneurs. A simple trip to the basics we need keep in mind when want to start our own business.

I have seen many having a bigger problem than to have an idea: What now? While not always those who have ideas want to start businesses, some only want them in the open for someone else to develop them, however, the process of starting/developing the idea can be a bit confusing, and this is where the book starts.

A checklist mode the book prepares us for execution:

- My idea is suitable to my style
- Differences between Partners and Investors
- The business plan
- The importance of the market test
- etc.

I liked the writing style is fluid and while it's really short, do not feel that at the end fall short. This led to any entrepreneur, increasing the target of the same, however, is thus not a place to find a "manual" of entrepreneurship.

Edition: Hardcover
Price: $17.61
106 used & new from $7.38

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for an AFOL, January 29, 2013
Even isn't a step by step guide, like the ones that came with every Lego Model, this book by Megan H. Rothrock its fun to read, his comic approach make it easy to read. but you had to be careful, this is not a book for a novice Lego builder. If your kid has a lot of patience you could let him to read the book.
It's a must have, and the book give you a view of great lego builders.
