    1. This book is recommended by Steve Blank. That was the main reason to read it. I found the book to be delivering exactly what it promised to deliver, and in a an easy, practical way. No unimportant theoretical stuff, but a lot of practical real life stories and examples. The book is a short read, and that's a plus.

    4. I came across an interview[1] with Andrew NG recently and I quite randomly pickedone of the books he suggested. This is a super short, crisp, onto the point advice on understanding yourcustomers and what they want from your product. The book highlights the need fora systematic approach to analyzing the feedback, and tells you how to do that.The book eventually talks about topics like balancing customer feedback andproduct vision, systematic interviews, validating assumptions etc.Something I shou [...]

    5. I was reading an interview of Andrew NG where he highly recommends this book, so I picked it up. This book is essentially for people who are working in a startup or intend to start one. Through stories, it shows how one needs to focus on assumptions at work place and work towards qualitative customer development.

    6. The basic take-away is that interviews should be organised in this way: part 1. behaviour and mindset where they only talk about their issues and past solutions they used - part 2. feedback on product or prototype where they feel they can be brutally honest about calling your baby ugly. // During both parts I try to talk 5% and listen 95% (silences are fine, too - they need to think) and I follow a basic list of questions (based on some assumptions I make before and I want to confirm or deny). W [...]

    7. Short and concise book to open up the world of communication to budding entrepreneurs. To get out there to talk to "humans" might seem like common sense, but there are some little tips that are extremely helpful -- don't sell, ask for advice first."If I asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses." Henry Ford

    8. So helpful on so many levels. From simple lists of question types that you should not forget to ask to ingenious ideas (and encouragement) of how to get people to talk to you.

    9. Great read when planning your customer interviewsThis is great, concise guide that will help you plan how to approach and what to say to your potential customers. The advice is very helpful and a good supplement to Lean Startup series.

    10. Great book for a basic, quick intro to talking to customers to validate your product assumptions. Not ground breaking but very fast to read and gives some very solid advice.

You have just the right information in a concise book. I recommend it if you want to start with something and talking to people in order to start going out the building !Me dieron este -workbook- en un curso que estoy tomando de emprendimiento y se me hizo sumamente interesante y aterrizado. Me encantó que lo pudiera c [...]

    12. Très bon livre qui repose les bases d'une interview utilisateur et remet quelques pendules à l'heure sur nos propres biais, les écueils habituels du business dans ces méthodes et comment dépasser nos assomptions. Rapide à lire et permet de se rafraichir les idées."When I say fish where the fish are, it is really important to remember the flip side to that statement: don’t fish where the fish are not. If a method isn’t working, try something new."

    13. By far one of the shortest books I've read in a couple of months and the most successful in delivering main points without circular arguments and overwhelming suspense. Exceptionally detailed examples that strengthen the main points, guiding the readers throughout every single process as we learn to make sense how every example relates to our own field of profession.

    14. This one is a good book for starters who wants to know how to approach people in order to make a products into sales. Also, it is best for people who are not new in the business with products that need salesIt's a practical guide in customer relations and development, product innovation or improvements, and how to convert learnings, ideas into action.

    15. Strong, brief book that acts as a good Primer on (or Reminder to) talking to CustomersA short, structured book that focuses on delivering a framework for speaking with customers in the product development stages. I would recommend this book.

    16. Practical, informative and concise handbook for customer developmentHighly recommend this for anyone developing new products. I have not yet tested the methodology empirically and will update my review then.

    17. 3.5 stars. A lot of really obvious information about customer discovery, but presented in an accessible way.

    18. A quick introduction to the customer development process and the how-tos. I would recommend The Mom Test by Rob Fitzpatrick than this because Rob’s is better written and more actionable than this.

    19. concise book on interviewing customers or users for your product development. instrumental for uncovering dangerous assumptions before getting into expensive product building.

    20. Super practical and concise book that all students should read before embarking on a market research or product development effort.

    21. A good book full of examples/scenarios on customer development and interviews, making easy to understand the concepts.

    22. I think this book is a must for everyone trying to build his startup or business. It is about market research in simple and easy way.
