Too monotone

I really wanted to like this book, and I still want to learn the content. The reader’s voice, while pleasant, was too sterile and even for me so it was difficult to stay with the content. I couldn’t finish it.

A lean book on lean systems

Concise and full of insights, this book is a quick entrance to the world of lean management. However, further readings on different subjects discussed in the book is definitely required in order to a successful implementation of the methodology.

Short overview, but decent content

I hadn't checked the length before hand, and was hopping for a more in depth presentation of the material. However, it works as a decent Introduction and overview.

A comprehensive view of the new venture cycle

I'm delighted with Lean Startup because it bridges the practicalities involved in the creation of a venture to a framework that everyone can understand. It tilts the playing field towards the learning process, not the business plan design process, to help entrepreneurs understand how to experiment fruitfully and efficiently.

Lean startups within larger organizations

I would highly recommend this audio book to folks in the process of founding a startup, as well as to leaders and instigators within larger companies who are seeking to launch new developments using small cross functional teams in a leaner and more accelerated fashion than traditional waterfall development efforts.

Points important things about building a Business

Great audio book. It organizes the basic concepts about agile product development and who to set business strategy. The pivot concept is quite accurate and it helps technicians to understand why business value is also important for success - I came from a technical background and it is really common to find people that only things about the product, the core technology inside it, but never cares about the business so for me, this book makes sense totally.

Great Audio Book on Lean Enterprise

This is a great audio book for the moment when your organization's leadership hears about Lean Startup and then goes "well that is all about startups and we aren't one...". This book makes a clear (and tugging) case around the opportunity lost in not evolving Lean in an existing organization.
