Make Something People Love: Lessons From a Startup Guy

Rate this book
So, you want to learn how to make a product people love—that’s great! But stop right there. Before you can make something people love, you have to make something people want . . .

What’s challenging and wonderful about the web is that tricks of perception alone will not work. Anything you create actually has to be good. No matter how much you try to convince someone to buy or use your product, they are always only a back button away from something more interesting.

The internet is the most efficient marketplace for ideas that has ever existed, but your competition is stiff, and comes in all forms.

Concise with very actionable steps for readers to take. Alexis Ohanian comes across as a very down-to-earth entrepreneur/start-up guy and every startup guy or company in general should aspire to take on his attitude — to genuinely want to improve things for users.

It is a short book, more like a long article. The central theme is to delight your users. Alexis recounts some experiences from his startup journey of 3 companies.

I would have liked it to be more sharp and have some kind of narrative. It feel as if the book starts and ends at the same point.

An enjoyable, quick read for people interested in the start-up world from someone who has actually done it.

Good book for starters and not for people who are already on hacker news.
