Inspiring but not practical
on May 14, 2012
If you are in business and are having a hard time, this will give you a boost. If you are thinking about getting into business, this book will probably push you past the threshold so that you just go ahead and do it. It is full of inspiration. Now this is not necessarily a bad thing. But you, the potential reader, must understand that this is what it is. It is inspiration for success but does not present a road map for success and that is where I was disappointed.
If you want a method and the cold hard truth, you really need to read "The Lean Startup" by Eric Ries and also "Running Lean" from Ash Maurya. Also, go on the net and find as many videos that you can featuring Steve Blank and watch all of them. He is awesome.
