5.0 out of 5 stars The startup owner bible, 13 May 2012
This book is amazing. Unlike the Four steps to the epiphany, it's very easy to read, very action oriented and very clear in the message.

It's not a book to read to cover to cover but a reference book that you use multiple times when you face a situation. It is so action oriented that the authors even provide the reader with a series of Todo lists that the entrepreneur can use when he is facing a certain situation.

The book details the Customer Development methodology and it goes beyond that by giving you a step by step guide on how to implement it on your day by day work, using tools like the Business Model Canvas made popular by this book: Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers

If you are serious about creating a company, you have to have this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for every entrepreneur, 1 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a great resource for every entrepreneur.

The book focuses in explaining a process on where you should be focusing your energies, what you should be doing and how to measure progress. This process is a great tool when your startup is in search for a business model, either launching a new product or service, or innovating an existing product.

Eric attempts (and in my view, succeeds) to prove in this book that Entrepreneurship is a Management Science and not just an art for the select few. While this has been an old discussion, this is the first book that makes a clear step forward in proving that Entrepreneurship is indeed a Management Science.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect book to explain entrepreneurship, 22 Nov. 2010

I love this book so much that i now recommend it to everyone that is interested in entrepreneurship or that complains that something needs to be done about (put problem here). It shows in plain language the mentality shift that is necessary to be a problem solver, instead of a problem maker. I which more people read and assimilate the lessons in this book
