The approaches for generating product ideas in this booklet are mostly good for lifestyle businesses which will be addressing small, niche markets.

Good frameworks. But writing feels like blog post: too many break-lines, big fonts, too many bullet points.

Author needs better writing skills for a book. Writing a blog is different than writing a book.

I felt like the author is trying hard to compensate the lack of enough content for a “book” with big typography.

Very practical. Most ideation book would talk about concept of generating ideas to solve existing problems. This book actually has a framework for you to follow and list all possible products/solutions for your field.

I was fortunate enough to get a pre-release of this book and read it cover to cover. It's a very well laid out method to work through ideas and avoid pitfalls of getting excited about your own ideas without validation and checking your blindspots!
This along with the Mom Test book should be required reading before anyone is aloud to start working on a idea!

This is a quick read and I was certainly not expecting to get so much value from it. It's highly practical, direct to the point. Most books should be like this.

After starting, I decided to give it a quick first read and then come around a second time and really do the steps outlined in the book on out to generate ideas. We'll see what comes out.

If you want to learn a couple of strategies to generate ideas, this is it!
