The Lean Startup
Comments and mentions from HN threads:
Ask HN: What three books impacted your career the most?
brikis98: Eric seemed like a humble, down-to-earth person and helped dispel the notion that to be a successful entrepreneur, you need to be a prescient, superhero, god-like visionary. Instead, what you need to do is to treat your startup and product ideas as hypotheses and test them, as quickly and cheaply as you can (i.e. lean development, MVPs, etc).
Ask HN: Books you would recommended for starting out in product management?
Ask HN: What language-agnostic programming books should I read?
beat: The best work you do is the work you find you don't need to do. Learn how to fail fast and save time on projects and product development, by building what customers want rather than what you think they need.
