Summary Of The Book
The world witnesses a number of people zealously starting their own businesses everyday. Some of them are even backed by the greatest ideas and commendable expertise. But in spite of such enthusiasts putting their sweat and blood into their dream projects, the world also witnesses everyday, a mighty big fraction of such businesses falling apart.

The book did a good job of introducing certain concepts such as MVP and concepts from Lean Manufacturing. Most of the examples covered in the book are from the software/web startup scene. How the concepts introduced in the book, when applied to certain core engineering fields are any different from existing techniques is still not very clear. The book does not intend to give answers to any critical questions that startups face, just tools they can use. That way, the book has not failed on its promises, but it would have been better if the book had covered atleast a few concrete examples from outside the software industry.
On of the very few books which talk about a fusion of different successful principles. A follow through on Andy Groves "High output Management" where he talks about using production principles in daily management. This book talks about leans principles in day to day management. Specially designed for entrepreneurs who want to stay focused and start shipping.
The book gives an interesting perspective on how to run companies, and how to build them in the first place. It takes a philosophical stance, which means "how to use this in real life" is for you to decide based on the situations you face. It gives you the freedom of thought instead of narrowing down the thought process to a few examples.
The reader embarks on a scientific journey to explore the right 'pivots' for business. Very thoughtful but may seem a little theoritical to youngsters wanting to start their own business.
Meant more for middle aged executives starting out on their own
After having read this book, I have started with a low, really low investment startup that surprisinly is bringing in leads and income!
Teaches you how to evulate what to do and how to do a ground study, importantly how CHANGE = SUCCESS!
