Not many tips on start ups just discussion on basic known facts.
one of the best business books I have ever read. love the insights around monopoly and competition.
Some really good points in this book, absolutely, but one must always remember, these are opinions, valid, but not everything said here should be taken as golden standard.
One important thing: focus on your employees and your customers - not your wallet. Period. That is where the sustainability happens.
There is a lot of commentary about not thinking inside a box. Embrace your uniqueness. Embrace grandiose thoughts. Embrace dreams. That just might be what the wolf needs. “The most contrarian thing of all is not to oppose the crowd but to think for yourself.”
I was pleasantly pleased with the author’s comments on computers and robots not taking over the world. They are not our competition, they are our tools. How we use those tools is up to us.
•The first step to thinking clearly is to question what we think we know about the past.
•Make incremental steps vs grandiose
•Treat entrepreneurship as experimental
•Focus on product not sales
•How much of what you know about business is shaped by mistaken reactions to past mistakes?
•Beginning with brand, rather than substance is dangerous
•Have we given up our sense of wonder?
•More data does not equate to more value
Interesting book, but most of it is very easy to forget. There are a few memorable quotes though.
A must read for entrepreneurs
I really enjoyed this book. I have read and listen to many business books and I would put this in the top ten. I think this book should be read by everyone who trying to start a new business or learn about business all together. It is a must read you will get some good tips.
It has a couple of good tips but not much more. Many successful people recommended this book so I had big expectations but it didn't meet them. Overall the book is ok but but it does't stand out. The narration was clear and perfectly understandable.
Some revealing insights on startups and particularly on investing. A good quick read.
