MY RATINGS – 4/5
The book name itself amazed me at the first sight that what does the name suggests by the title “Lean Startup”?But when I read the first chapter I got to know many new things about Startups. Most of the people think that the big companies are big because the founder might had invested huge amount of money, but that’s not true.
The Lean Start up is about the strategies of growing of big companies from scratch. Without knowing anything about the businesses how you can also grow your company and how you can reach at your highest potential.
