"The book is an invaluable resource for demystifying the Lean Process. It's also an excellent guide for mid-career UX designers that want to move to a more iterative process and away from waterfall, and for founders that don't have the money to pay for a user experience designer and would need to have a go at it themselves."
--Patrick Neeman, usabilitycounts.com

"Nowadays, there are no doubts about the role UX plays in getting a great product. Unfortunately, UX is generally associated with costly processes which involve lots of design. In this book, Laura Klein does an excellent job in showing you how to apply several techniques in order to reduce the time and money which is typically spent in this area."
