Publisher's Summary

Disciplined Entrepreneurship: 24 Steps to Success will change the way you think about starting a company. Many believe that entrepreneurship cannot be taught, but great entrepreneurs aren't born with something special - they simply make great products. This book will show you how to create a successful startup through developing an innovative product. It breaks down the necessary processes into an integrated, comprehensive, and proven 24-step framework that any industrious person can learn and apply. You will learn: Why the "F" word - focus - is crucial to a startup's success. Common obstacles that entrepreneurs face - and how to overcome them. How to use innovation to stand out in the crowd - it's not just about technology. Whether you're a first-time or repeat entrepreneur, Disciplined Entrepreneurship gives you the tools you need to improve your odds of making a product people want. Author Bill Aulet is the managing director of the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship as well as a senior lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management.

    "Listen to something else"
    Any additional comments?

    I have read good books and haven't left comments. Read bad books and haven't left comments. However, i feel so cheated by this monstrosity that I am compelled to leave a comment.
    If you missed the fact that Bill attends MIT, you will know this by the end of chapter 1 (why, oh why didn't i stop reading here). And if you miss that chapter, continual references to his colleagues & students at MIT will ensure that you know it sooner rather than later. And if you missed that Bill attends MIT, you will know it by the end of chapter 1. Oh, don't forget Bill's students attend MIT. Aaaand so does Bill's colleagues. Aaand Bill teaches there. At MIT. Aaand this book was written by someone (that would be Bill) who attends MIT. M.I.T, Yay! And if that's not intelligent enough for you, we then get to rename common concepts so that they then become our original idea, 'cause that would give us a competitive advantage. Opps, sorry I meant that would give us Core. But wait you want more intelligence? Lets 'Lean' on someone else's concept, get all nitpicky with the wording and the claim that our bastardisation of someone else's original concept is far superior (we can do this because we are MIT).
    So, unless you are dazzled by MIT, want to be a fanboy of MIT, or there is a certain teacher at MIT that you want to impress, do yourself a favour and choose a different book.

    Story
    "This book is impossible to listen to (reader)"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator that has passion for the subject


    What was most disappointing about Bill Aulet’s story?

    I couldn't get past 10 minutes with this; I kept having to restart because I'd tune out after a minute or so.


    What didn’t you like about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance?

    It sounds 'read'; no passion here. Get excited about the topic to keep the listener listening.

    "Excellent book, horrible narrator"

    The narrator sounds like a pompous snob, almost ruined the book for me. The content is excellent though, two thumbs up.

    "Good Content / Awful Narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book to a friend, not the audiobook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Disciplined Entrepreneurship?

    Well thought out, methodical steps to entrepreneurship providing you already have a specific idea, passion, skill or technology.


    What didn’t you like about Erik Synnestvedt’s performance?

    The narrator sounded like he was holding in a sneeze or holding back tears while narrating. The narrator ruined the content. It was so poorly read that it became very easy to tune out. A shame, because I generally prefer the audio format.


    Could you see Disciplined Entrepreneurship being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Read the book instead, do NOT get the audio version. The narration needs to be redone with a better narrator.

    "best book on entrepreneurship ever written"
    Any additional comments?

    Without question the best book ever written on the topic of disciplined entrepreneurship to come from MIT. This insightful book comes with a free companion online course on EdX, and the opportunity to participate in a highly selective and immersive bootcamp run by Bill Aulet in Cambridge, MA. The bootcamp is the MIT course condensed into a one week period, where the brightest minds from over 30 countries converge, along with a roster of highly notable serial entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. Highly recommended!

    "Good enough for marketing tech"

    While ignorant of some of the most important and actionable research in entrepreneurship, and focused around tech advances that don't cause too many waves, it is good enough for someone seeking an outline of reverse-value-chain marketing (marketing that starts with end-use and works its way back to the creation of the product).

    "Not only the WHAT but also the HOW."

    Manny books focus on what you should do as an entrepreneur but never get down into the how. Excellent book to have in your toolbox.

    "Excellent book"

    The content in this book is excellent. It discusses many mistakes I have made myself as an entrepreneur. The narrator's voice is slightly annoying, which becomes a distraction. But it is still worth listening too, as this book does a great job of helping you to provide a foundation that is much needed for any venture.
