The Four Steps to the Epiphany
The Four Steps to the Epiphany
by Steve Blank
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Very insightful and very detailed, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read a lot of books that wax lyrical over 'lean' but this one is the base template.

Its really not a read cover to cover book but to dip in and out of when your thinking about how you practically do something.

Really a must for your shelf as a reference if your a startup leader. Also not something you can find on the net (most of the lean stuff is just basic concepts which you can glean from the net).

5.0 out of 5 stars Works - very quick and easy alternative to ethernet port, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My laptop doesnt have an ethernet port and this works great with my office network plug and play no driver install.

Really handy, the ony problem is its easy to have other people 'borrow' it....guess I need another one now.

Nice quality feel of the design and aesthetically pleasing.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works and really, saves a lot of hassle!, 28 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have a new laptop with HDMI only and pretty much all of your clients have vga projectors....this is what you need.

Works very well with an excellent picture, for the price a nice solution.

Plus its green so its easy to find in your bag.

2.0 out of 5 stars Marginally better than a google search, 10 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can find it on the internet. It is laid out for you and it is coherent. But really it doesn't hit any detail on how to estimate stories or anything that is actually of difficulty in the method.

How do you estimate stories in business points?
How do you estimate tasks? Why are story points better than estimating in hours (I feel I know but its still difficult to explain to an eastern european outsourcer..
What to do if a sprint isn't complete? Do you move un-complete tasks to another sprint or keep the sprint you have until its complete?

All questions I struggle with. No answers in here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Note: Does not include Loss - far more likely than theft!, 26 Jan 2012
Kindles are highly unlikely to break (I dropped mine in and out of case several times). Your more likely to leave it on a bus/train/airplane/down well/drop into the sea/drop off a cliff etc.

This doesn't cover that. 25% of value of product for two less likely scenarios in my opinion Did not cover what I needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 23 Dec 2010

This review is from: Been Listening (Audio CD)
Second album as good as the first (ok, very nearly)!

Just seen him live. Definitely a rare talent! I have had the pleasure of hearing Noah &W, Mumford and sons & Marling on pub circuit (they called it nu-folk...think I feel queasy) in London a few years back before startdom...Johnny F was definitely and is favorite of them. Buy it... while he still looks poor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really NEET, 23 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sorry...bad pun. Don't let that put you off an excellent little adapter. I have a macbook pro and us this for my Samsung flat screen (22" maybe?). It works great with the Amazon home brand HDMI cable. Its tidy and provides a perfect picture. No sound though but I think thats possibly to do with my monitor?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but somehow not as good as Fatherland, 23 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Enigma (Paperback)
Good holiday thriller (?! is it a thriller?). Enjoyed the book, a great read. Found it possibly less gripping that Fatherland but still a good yarn.

Overall, enjoyable and worth a read! I would pass it on to friends.

Gave it to my nephew who loves it! He said it was his best present. I had a go and it is very creative and great fun (who doesn't like running around pushing a shopping cart)!!
