I work in UX and have done for over 15 years. This book attempt to summarise what is meant by 'Lean UX' and how it can be done. It manages to offer a view but is too sketch and patchy to be a definitive guide.

In a nut shell it was a rebranding of the practices I had taken part in for many years, but with a few new additions to bring the ideas up to date and inline with ideas like Agile and Lean Start Up. In a nut shell the book does not invent but rediscovers ideas. For example the close working of teams has been around since I've been working, with War Rooms bringing together developers, stakeholders and designers into a seamless team. The idea of hypothesis then test is also something that has been around in areas of product design and design in general for a long time. Ideas like using style guides that everyone can access have also been in place for the time I've been working, often evolving from brand guidelines. I was lucky enough to work with Disney in my early career and was always amazed at the style guides they had for their films.

Where the book is weakest is when it tries to tie too much into lean Start up. There are many things about lean start up that are developer orientated, much like Agile. One area it is weak is in the creation of concepts prior to focusing upon actual interfaces - that is testing out the whole idea of something and getting that right before delving into detail. Lean Start Up and Agile use an evolutionary model to improve the product, but the final destination of the product is dependent on the starting point - and that is where the book is weak. It labels the starting point as 'assumptions' and places research squarely after something has been built. Research during the project is fine but it does not indicate how projects start.

This is a great book, and a lot of it is what the industry needs to really break out of the constraints of the old Waterfall type processes.

One word of warning: you might not want to buy this for the Kindle. The book has quite a few diagrams, designs and photos, which aren't really readable on a small e-ink screen.

Very readable book that sets out the three principles for Lean UX - design thinking, Agile development methodologies and the Lean Startup approach extolled by Eric Ries - and develops from these various tactics to help UX teams embedded in large organisations become part of the lean and Agile solution, rather than sidelined onlookers. It doesn't trivialise the transition either with glib solutions - though personally I feel the most difficult people to convince to switch to Lean UX will be the UX team themselves so I think I'll have to buy 10 more copies.

This book ruined my Easter weekend as I couldn't put it down!!! It's a great follow-on from the first book in the series and goes into detail of some aspects introduced in the Lean Startup. It's the kind of book you will read once but then keep referring back to as you start to apply the principles.

I highly recommend this book and no you can't borrow my copy :)

Jeff Gothelf and Josh Seiden write in such a friendly, yet knowledgeable and trustworthy way with the use of case studies, anecdotes, diagrams, drawings and thorough explanations of Lean UX and how to start incorporating it into your workflow.
The language is simple and friendly enough for me as something of a beginner in this area to grasp and the author gives excellent examples within every Lean UX principle showing both "what it is" and "why do it".

I could not for the life of me stop highlighting quotes and even full paragraphs of this book in order to re-read them and have a go at implementing some of the things I've learnt.
I highly recommend it to anyone within a company who has a desire to become more efficient in UX design and propel their productivity by challenging themselves and their colleagues to dive into and utilise Lean principles.

Not only good theory, but also real world examples how the author puts theory into practice.

Buzzwords are all fine, we've all heard about the awesome LEAN-model (and maybe claim to use some of it?). This book was my first serious attempt to understand how Lean and UX would fit together. I got the picture and more important - guides how to start implementing it where I work!

I'll keep this book and return to it when I have my own experiences of working truly by the LEAN-process, reading selected parts. This is one of my most highlighted books in my ePub reader :)

I am positively excited about the UX practice's redesign that I hope it'll help catalyse. Read this book, get empowered, and go designing good stuff, COLLABORATIVELY!

I'm a UX professional and have recently been trying to learn about how to use lean processes.

This book is a really good guide to lean UX, introducing it and giving practical tips. The book is also full of real world case studies, which really helped me to understand the advantages of lean.

The book benefits from being only about 120 pages, as it's a quick read I found it easy to become really engaged in the content
