This book is AMAZING. If you are looking for a step by step guide for how to implement lean startup principles in your social sector innovation/mission, look no further. This book will be my guiding anchor/reference as I launch my social innovation this year. I am so grateful for this book. It turns an otherwise overwhelmingly blank slate into a play-by-play, framework filled, practical, accessible road map to effective, smart, fast, disciplined innovation.
