What does your book writing process look like now? What did you learn writing The Lean Startup and how much of the teachings of the lean concept itself are applicable to book writing?

Cheers! /Martin

I think they are very applicable. During the writing process for TLS I spent an absolute metric ton of time testing, iterating, workshopping and trying to make sure that:

1) the value proposition for the book was right and 2) that the book actually lived up to that value proposition

I am convinced the book would not have been a blockbuster without that work.

Now the tools are so much better. Kickstarter allows me to do this testing and iteration in a much bigger and more public way - and that's just the start. Now that I have a 7000+ community of people who are going on the journey with me, I have a built-in place to test concepts and make sure that what I'm recommending is actually effective.

I started using Lifesum recently, and it's great!

I have a couple feature requests, and I was wondering if it would be okay to post them here, or email you.

Thanks!

I also second this. A good approach may be to show 3-5 subjects (e.g. Philosophy, Startups, Architecture) and highlight one of the courses that would be the best beginners course. So if I'm interested in philosophy it's very easy to just see immediately where I could/should begin and click just one button. Going in to feature creep here but; as I just signed up I haven't completed a course yet, obviously, so I don't know what happens then, but it would be great (for retention etc.) to be recommended a natural next course to take as well. Dumb it down for the user even more. Actually what I would do is to have a button in the last email of a course that would read "Continue with GREATEST PHILOSOPHERS IN HISTORY". So just one click and I would be in the loop again.

I definitely got in to a "oh this is nice.. and this too.. and these two would be cool..". At the same having the full catalogue of courses available is good of course, but don't overwhelm the first time user.

I would test having the "popular courses" feature, or something like proposed above, just under your headline actually. So it's super easy to see what the site is really about without even having to scroll. That would show off the kind of content you have and even though your name is Highbrow, it might not be clear if you're teaching out nail painting techniques or philosophy when I just read the headline and the feature list you have.

Great idea anyway and nice execution. :)

Just a heads up, Chrome on my phone crashes repeatedly when trying to play the video.
