If your not already familiar with old concepts like, The Lean Startup, Agile Product, Development and User Testing, then this is going to be a great book for you.
But for many of us this book will provide No new information. It's a standard week long sprint ending in some user testing of your prototype, the same stuff that's been preached from the mountain tops for the last 5 years. The authors provide a lot of detail around how to run the sprints, which is nice, but for the most part I was anxious to wrap this book up and move on to something new.
To be clear, if you are Not super familiar with the concepts I mentioned above, then I would Highly recommend this book. The content is absolutely true and this book is a good, albeit basic, summary of the principles needed for rapid, low-cost product development.

This book is much better than expected! It's practical, with plenty worksheets (on the Sprint book website) and contains clear, helpful directions based on Jake's experience working with this.
The sprints are like a mix of scrum and design thinking. Leaning more towards the latter.
Some have remarked the book is full of Google-talk. I didn't feel that way at all. They mention Google a few times, but it's never obnoxious or distracting at any level.
