There's a lot of evidence to suggest the book wasn't even proofed before it was published. There are spelling mistakes all over it and even an entire paragraph repeated on pages 158 and 162. 

It's a short book padded out with irrelevant or uselessly vague anecdotes and photos that don't relate to the topic under discussion. 
For example page 168 discusses how to use a 2x2 matrix. The text says 'draw a Cartesian coordinate "+" on a board. A what? How big? Frustratingly there's a large image on the

Useful, but slightly boring. This is largely a collection of exercises, most of which should be familiar to designers with some experience. The value is in the 'framework' of the design sprint which ties it all together. I can see myself selling this to clients as a design consultant. And I can also see myself suggesting it as a kick-off for a new larger project. But I expect to do some serious tailoring in all cases.

Easy to digest and very hands on. Great reference for collaborative and cross disciplinary design processes.

Comparé au livre fondateur de la méthodologie Sprint, Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days, ce livre n'apporte au final pas grand chose à part une litanie de manières de réduire la méthodologie Sprint en charpie pour satisfaire à des exigences de grandes entreprises. La force du Sprint étant de compresser un process en un très petit nombre de jour comparé aux gros projet, ce livre déforce à mes yeux l'ensemble du process. La profusion d'ateliers peut sembler int ...more

Really useful book for anyone interested in the design sprint as a technique. PMs, designers, CEOs could all benefit from using design sprints and reading this book when planning new products, features...
It is written in the easy to digest language with practical toolkit in the end.

If you know nothing about a design sprint, then this books takes you from 0 to 10. But that's what it is and that's what it does. It doesn't teach you any more or less, and that can be boring or interesting depending on your intention for reading it. I knew nothing about a design sprint, so I was happy to learn about the process. But as a designer, I didn't have a place to apply it. But if i did want to, I guess I could reference it.

This is a great book for anybody involved into a digital project design process. It covers the whole process from the discovery of opportunities/issues to quick prototyping and validation of the project premises. This framework is lean and agile, allowing to check the validity of the project at a minimum cost and come up with most effective solutions in a short period of time.

I read this book in polish. Reading it was somehow awkward. Maybe it was just bad polish translation.

If you want to include your cross-functional team in innovative product development this is an excellent read. Very good step-by-step guide with practical tools on how to conduct a design sprint.

Meh. Molto polistirolo a riempire il vuoto, scrittura sciatta, capoversi di capoversi di banalità, ripetizione. Sembra scritto in fretta da persone senza gran esperienza. Arrivo alla fine perché ha un'impostazione pratica, ha le checklist, dice niente di nuovo ma mette in fila punti da ricordare quando provi a mettere in piedi qualcosa nello spirito di un design sprint («a cathartic timeboxed design cycle driven by assumptions and bookended with customer input and feedback») e dà qualche buon co ...more

Very practical approach to validating an idea in a very short period of time. It's a structured approach, but the presentation is not dogmatic as so much of the books in this genre can be. Perhaps I was biased after attending a panel of the smart and down-to-earth authors that was refreshingly light on theory.
Stephen Collins
A useful, practical approach to doing one or many design sprints.

As someone who uses this technique, it was good to see a combination of validation of my work, new ideas, and clues as to where I'm not getting it right.
