The Power of “What If” Questions
Content from authors Alexander Osterwalder and Yves Pigneur
…furniture buyers picked up components in flat pack form from a large warehouse and assembled the products themselves in their homes? What is common practice today was unthinkable until IKEA introduced the concept in the 1960’s. …airlines didn’t buy engines for their airplanes, but paid for every hour an engine runs? That is how Rolls-Royce transformed itself from a money-losing British manufacturer into a service firm that today is the world’s second biggest provider of large jet engines. …voice calls were free worldwide? In 2003 Skype launched a service that allowed free voice calling via the internet. After five years, Skype had acquired 400 million registered users who collectively had made 100 billion free phone calls.

Top Customer Reviews
PROS: Anyone new to these topics would likely have to read four to six separate books to get the broad coverage you'll find here. The authors have done a service for folks who want to come up to speed more quickly. I felt that I came away with some useful info in most of the chapters and each has additional references for further reading. The designers also deserve some credit for a creative and varied layout that makes the text seem fresher. Plus, you can feel good about yourself as you plow through 50+ pages in half an hour without fatigue. The bonus: this is a business book that won't have you drowning in business jargon.
CONS: As several reviewers have noted, there's breadth here but not much depth on the core topics. Those expecting more may be disappointed and some may find the book's suggestive title misleading. Probably more accurate if they called it "A *PRIMER* for Business Model Generation" instead of a Handbook. It's a place to get started, not a definitive resource as the term handbook implies. Finally, the small font sizes that a few reviewers mentioned will surely be difficult to read for those with less-than-great eyesight.
It looks really great inside and out. This book can be used as inspiration for doodle or sketching note taking (visual notes).
It covers basic concepts.
The actual book quality is great and it helps justify the price.
It's funny and really strange how they included creatives in the picture but completely ignored and left out engineers or scientists i.e. the 'builders' and 'makers'
There's not much actual content, which is kind of good when I get to the next point.
It's archaic and out of date. The new model of business thinking is that everything (including the business plan) is just an assumption that needs to be tested. This book tends to assume that your business plan is a near perfect prediction bible for your business.
It's still worth a look given the visuals.
The book had great graphic design but it was a little light on the technical details. Perhaps an "Advanced" version should be released.
I feel the remainder of the book is primarily geared towards those professionals who assist business owners in developing their business models. It takes the discussion of business modeling to a whole new level than other business modeling books. I would characterize this part of the book as applying an engineering discipline to the field of business modeling. I am very anxious to incorporate the lessons into my own practice.
