Details: Product Description The Mom Test is a quick, practical guide that will save you time, money, and heartbreak. They say you shouldn't ask your mom whether your business is a good idea, because she loves you and will lie to you. This is technically true, but it misses the point. You shouldn't ask anyone if your business is a good idea. It's a bad question and everyone will lie to you at least a little . As a matter of fact, it's not their responsibility to tell you the truth. It's your responsibility to find it and it's worth doing right . Talking to customers is one of the foundational skills of both Customer Development and Lean Startup. We all know we're supposed to do it, but nobody seems willing to admit that it's easy to screw up and hard to do right. This book is going to show you how customer conversations go wrong and how you can do better.

It's because it represents a "big idea" that every business person should know: "You can't trust what customers say they'll do in the future. You can only trust how they currently do things." -- Justin Jackson, Founder "Most business books are half fluff; this is not. It's 100% practical guidance. I was so impressed that I've been referencing it constantly in conversations with co-workers. It's a short, entertaining, and very-easy-to-apply read. Big thumbs up". -- S.K., Founder About the Author Rob is a tech entrepreneur of 10 years, obsessed with the question of how to get better information from customers before we've committed to building everything.
