6. The Lean Startup
By Eric Ries
In this book, Eric Ries said that Startup is not just working on a brilliant idea and start a business and get overnight success, a Startup is about the handling of extreme uncertainty. According to Eric Ries, A startup is an experiment where you have to test and learn continuously to get the desired results before your competitors, even you never know that what will be the output.
He has also written about why startups are getting failed and why startup founders are unable to make a sustainable business model, why startups should use or not use conventional methods for building a business.
The Lean Startup is all about not falling into misconceptions like many people have a misconception that to be a successful entrepreneur and have millions of followers on your social media pages all you need is a great idea and a business plan and after executing that idea you’ll be a millionaire or maybe a billionaire but it is not like that maybe your idea is good according to you but your customers don’t like that.
In simple language, Eric wants to say that your first product can’t be the final product you need to modify or keep doing changes on it after getting customer feedback.
These are the best business books that every entrepreneur must read and these books will help you where no one else. You can also read summaries of these books that will definitely help you to improve.
