    One thought on “All in Startup: Launching a New Idea When Everything Is on the Line”

    1. I have just finished reading an exceptionally well written business book with a surprising fictional storyline Diana Kander s book, all in startup Launching a New Idea When Everything is on the Line, is presented to the reader as a fictional story about an individual that started his business on flawed assumptions Her book covers four basic ideas 1 Startups are about finding customers, not building products, 2 People don t buy products or services they buy solutions to their problems, 3 Entrepre [...]

    2. This book is sort of an El Camino It s stuck between a business book about Lean Startup and a novel.While I admire the attempt, I didn t think it worked It wasn t as preachy as Atlas Shrugged, which would have dropped it to 1 star It wasn t as good as Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance It s biggest sin is that it didn t follow its own advice, as it didn t solve a migraine problem I found a problem because it advocated straight up face to face lying to potential clients in the market resea [...]

    3. Page to page turned 5 stars for the enjoyment Eventhough I focused on charactors love story than business content, I still got some useful concepts.

    4. While I appreciate the effort in writing a novel instead of a dry instructions book, I found the moment in which the characters play poker basically 50% of the book rather dull I understand why these are there, but I skipped most of them as they didn t give me any information and were rather corny Also, the circumstances in which the main character finds himself are way too optimistic and would happen with a very small probability to someone else, making you feel like it all works out too well a [...]

    5. A great lesson in a novel formatThis book was actually for a class I m taking while completing my graduate degree What was most interesting this book, is the fact that there were lessons in each chapter and the fact that the book was written like a novel versus a textbook Each day I read the story about Owen and Sam pulled me in deeper and deeper I looked forward to reading each day If most textbooks were written in this format, I believe they would be enjoyable I give Diane Kander a huge thum [...]

    6. I found this book extremely entertaining and easy to listen to in Audible It s the most exciting business book I ve ever read The fact that it puts entrepreneurship knowledge in a personal life context makes it so much fun and easy to digest Each chapter title is something any wanna be entrepreneur should write down in a PostIt and stick it on the wall.

    7. Surprisingly one of the best books I have ever read on startups Read it when I was 20 in college and getting into the scene.This book teaches valuable lessons and is told through fiction narrative Massively educational and recommended for every entr classroom.

    8. The story is just a gimmick and is too stereotypical at times Real advice content could have been summarized in a couple of pages.I liked the poker analogy though.

    9. Even though my review is a star above others, I understand where they are coming from As a novel, the story is a bit less than super brilliant literature It won t be one of those books that really change your view of the world, like Catch 22 or A Soldier of the Great War And, as a business book, it s a bit less than a straightforward manual you can hand to an intern and expect to have them handling complex mergers on Wall Street But it gets 5 stars from me because it works well as both a novel a [...]

    10. Great book, great story, great review of the Lean principles and an easy read You can t go wrong with that one.If you re into entrepreneurship close or afar, read it Actually, consider it a must read Don t build something nobody wants, build something that solves problems to someone.The key takeaways are highlighted, making it even convenient for further reviews.Thanks Mrs Kander

    11. What can I say that other reviews haven t already This was an unusually fun business book to read, set inside a fictional storyline about an entrepreneur at the Poker World Series The characters were surprisingly good and the plot was not contrived Despite having read other startup books, I definitely learned a lot from this one, and I loved the metaphor of All in Startup All in Poker The lessons from this book are easier to digest since you connect emotionally with the characters and the story. [...]

    12. The novel really pushes the point reiterates throughout the book about entrepreneurs needing to validate their assumptions before starting to spend money on anything else related to the organization This lesson is conveyed in a storytelling manner as the book is a novel The storytelling approach provides a nice alternative to understanding what Steve Blank, Eric Ries, and other lean startup gurus are striving to convey about how to start a company or even before officially starting a company.

    13. Diana was coming to speak to my Entrepreneurship class so I decided to give her book a read I was a little skeptical on the idea of an Entrepreneurship textbook written in novel form, but once I got a few chapters in I found myself enjoying both the stories and the lessons Sometimes the love stories involved are a little cheesy or too much, but it doesn t detract in an overwhelming way Give this one a read if you re entrepreneurial minded You might learn a thing or two.

    14. A very easy read A number of great tips offered in story fashion If you are an entrepreneur or a business owner the characters really draw you in as their troubles may begin to resonate with what you have experienced You want to read the next chapter as much to find out what happens to the people in the story as you want to learn about running a successful business.

    15. Some points of view are really fresh To sum up what it says Provide a solution to what customers are facing and always test your assumption I would give an extra one star if it s concise The book can be shrank into half at least But it s interesting to carry out the tips in an novel like story.

    16. I picked this up because Diana spoke at a women s leadership conference at my alma mater A lot of her practical ideas that she spoke about were in here, just fleshed out a bit I don t really work in a corporate setting, but if I did I think her common sense approach could be used for a variety of projects, not just a new enterprise Great ideas and lots of common sense reasons.

    17. Good easy read to cement Lean Startup and Business Model Canvas basic concepts Definitely recommend for new and early stage founders and intrepreneurs launching new ventures I could have done without the authors attempts to create sexual tension in the plot her fiction writing skills are fair but overall still recommend it as it definitely reinforces and explains key concepts very well.

    18. Had to read this book for class, pretty interesting look at entrepreneurship and startup failures I enjoyed the plot and comparison to poker made it a lot interesting to learn about business.

    19. A book that explains Lean Startup and Customer Development in the format of a novel It also makes interesting analogies between poker and Startup Life Nice read to understand the basics of the new frameworks and methods followed by startups around the world.

    20. Fantastic fiction book teaching the key elements of lean methodology A must read for startups Warning once you pick it up, its very hard to put down.

    21. Ugh I appreciated the business lessons that were wrapped into the text, but I could have done without the cheesy pseudo love story and constant poker talk Just give me the highlights.

    22. Probably this is among few books that I really put full concentration on every written word and printed page Highly recommended for every start up

    23. This book is not just a story, it s a manual for anyone who wants to have success in their startup business advice.

    24. An excellent book explaining lean startup principles much better than foundational books there And most importantly, it s fun

    25. If this was a love story, it would be god awful However, the book has very good tips about entrepreneurship.

    26. I read several positive feedback about this book but it actually like a novel which try to teach practical trick about starting and growing an start up which I think its impossible.

    27. If you ever did startup and not succeed, you will love this book Because it reminds you about the mistakes that you did And might not learn those mistakes yet And you will not do it again.

    28. Good story and good job weaving in lean startup principles as well as the similarities between playing poker and business.
