Very Disappointing!

This is a summarization and regurgitation of several popular books out there right now. It is filled with summaries and lists. Lists are very difficult to listen to. They are better suited to traditional books. If the lists were used in summation of a chapter or to highlight key points, but chapters are list after list. If you are comfortable with this style of audio book, it might be ok for you, but I found it very hard to follow while listening. The material is very dense and the list style doesn't lend itself to easy following in an audio book.

Awesome and actionable advice

Great book - must read for anyone starting a business. Great info on customer development which can help avoid the huge risk of creating a product the market does not need or want. The short section on what a business is, was just a bit painful. I do wish there was a little more detail on the specifics of what the author built himself. Honestly though, buy and devour this book!
