Publisher's Summary

Lean Analytics opens up the world of collecting and analyzing data to new entrepreneurs, by showing them how to use data as a powerful tool without getting consumed by it to build, launch and grow their startup faster while focusing on the right metrics. Without data, any good entrepreneur will lie to themselves about how good their business really is.

Building a company successfully comes down to finding the golden middle between believing in your dream and building something the world actually needs, and data is the balancing pole that lets you walk on this tightrope.

Much of lean analytics is about finding a meaningful metric, then running experiments to improve it until that metric is good enough for you to move on to the next problem or the next stage of your business.

In a startup, you don't always know which metrics are key, because you're not entirely sure what business you're in. You're still trying to find the right product or the right target audience. In a startup, the purpose of analytics as discussed in this book is to find your way to the right product and market before the money runs out.

Robotic Recording of Shallow Insights

Would you try another book from Harry Altman and/or Bridger Conklin?

No

What could Harry Altman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Record in a voice that doesn't sound like voice of a machine.
Write a book on concepts that are not common sense to a point where applying them would mean you just do what everybody with a bit of caring and smarts would do anyway. This was so generic that it was hard to keep paying attention to.

good book

This book really reinforces the point that metrics which are not in service of your current business goals are effectively trivia and not worth investment. I highly recommend it.

nice book


This book is great. It gets the vanity metrics out of the way by defining what a good metric is, differentiates between business models and marketing tactics, and gives you the key metric you need to be focusing on based on the type of startup. It also references other important startup concepts that you need to get up to speed on - but while they were at it, they should have mentioned Crossing the Chasm

intelligent guide

Lean" is the most bastardized term in all the land. When I came across this book the pitch sold me right away. I'm leaving this review because this book very much delivered on its promise. It shows you HOW without being overly prescriptive or assuming it has a "formula for success". It gives you specific concrete metrics to watch for your type of business, what healthy looks like for those metrics, and how you can actually measure whether you're making progress

practical advice

I like the book, everyone raves about it for good reason.

I found the narrator really annoying but pushed through it - very useful and highly recommended.
