If you're coming out of high school and are scheming up your first (or maybe second) startup, then this is the book for you. You'll learn a lot.
On the other hand, if your a consultant, read business blogs and have launched a few products in your time, you probably won't learn much.
The narration is by the author, laid back but personable. He knows what he's talking about. He offers clarity and direction. The Lean Startup won't teach you everything, but if you are relatively new or confused, or perhaps discouraged by past failures, get this.

Humble and persuasive, the author highlights through his own struggles how he came to apply a lean manufacturing mindset to software development. What is particularly fascinating to me is how well this translates to all business startups not just to product development. Excellent stuff. @upfinder

An interesting listen. The content of the book is interesting, detailed and comprehensive. The case studies used in the piece are fantastic and in terms of gaining value from the book I have already been able to apply some of the techniques in my day job.
However, the only negative would be the delivery of the content. This audio is not something that you will look forward to listening to.. although you can see the benefit in listening to the book. It is similar to a child being force fed their greens. In the sense you know that their may be some benefit in listening to the audio but you would rather eat sweets or watch TV in my case.
It is worth a credit however, sample the audio before you purchase as the delivery may not suit.

Very lightweight on content and no real business applications for a lean startup. It is mostly self indulgent and meaningless twaddle about apps. Lots of talk about mission critical businesses but avoids anything with a harder business edge than Quickbooks. I stuck this out but dont feel it was worth the efffort.

Interesting very technology based book, and in parts I found myself drifting off it. Two takeaways' from the book are minimal viable product concept and the 5 whys sections we're the best for me.
