If you measure the value of a book by the number of pages you get for your pounds, look away now. The Entrepreneurs Guide to Customer Development is a slim and comparatively expensive volume. But if you're looking for a short, actionable summary to Steven Gary Blank's "The Four Steps to the Epiphany" this book will seem like excellent value. I've added more post-it tabs and made more notes in the margin in this book's less-than-100 pages than in many much weightier volumes. It seems Mies Van de Rohe was right - in this case, less is more.

This book is only 50 or so pages long which is definitely not in this books favour, some could call it the most overpriced blog article you'll find in amazon, however it does provide some additional value to those not first sold on Steve Blank's book.
I would argue that taking careful notes from blank's book will serve you better AND most importantly this book only covers the first section of Blank's book 'Customer Discovery'. I would recommend to avoid this specific book but if you do buy it certainly don't read this until you have read Blank's masterpiece!
