This is a fantastic book. Ries does a brilliant job of applying Lean thinking to startups. He addresses both the guy working out of his basement and the small team exploring a new business line in a Fortune 500 company.
My favorite insight in the book is that when we are exploring something new, we should focus on measures of learning over traditional measures of success. Ries includes some great examples of startups making adjustments as they learn, and ones that didn't.
The book is highly accessible and of interest to both people familiar with Lean and those who have never heard of it.
