  1. I’m at the end of chapter 3 and so far this book is crap, I don’t
    understand why people think it’s good? It’s over worded, and it’s like he’s
    rambling… Also a lot of the first 3 chapters is about what NOT to do, I
    don’t wana know what not to do, I wana know what TO do. Then he goes on and
    on about his failures, it’s making me lose confidence in him and his
    advice. Did anyone else find this? 

  2. So relevant – will always be relevant. Great actually seeing this after
    reading the lean startup! Every agileist should watch this!

  3. 31:30 the A-ha moment…prototype, validate, learn (design process)…then
    build measure learn (lean)

  4. 7:53, exactly As Drucker said ‘The worst thing in the world is to do very
    well what need not be done at all.” Find your customers pains and gains,
    then sell them exactly what they need.

  5. Hes got a real good point. Google should test and pivot its products
    outside of the brand then when it is real good, launch and enjoy success of
    having the Google brand against it.
