    Good summary of different business models but I personally thought 23 models are way too many and many of them overlapped It eventually falls down to 4 5 models reselling profit, scale profit, diversified profit, early mover profit, profit multipler The way the author structured the story conversation between old mentor zhao and young guy steve made it easy to understand but was distracting highlights switchboard profit model reminds me of power of network effect in the business Good summary of different business models but I personally thought 23 models are way too many and many of them overlapped It eventually falls down to 4 5 models reselling profit, scale profit, diversified profit, early mover profit, profit multipler The way the author structured the story conversation between old mentor zhao and young guy steve made it easy to understand but was distracting highlights switchboard profit model reminds me of power of network e...

    An easy read, but the lessons aren t far fetched or mind blowing Decent read since you can finish it in one sitting, but don t expect lightning in a bottle.

    I enjoyed the essence of the book As a product manager, I always look for different perspectives on understanding product lifecycle This one surely rates as a must because of its view on product purely from profitability POV I am not sure about this whole fable style I thought it was silly and took too much space away from real subject It has things like his mind tightened Lastly, the book nearly needs an update In the age of lean startup and internet, a book talking about VCRs and F I enjoyed the essence of the book As a product manager, I always look for different perspectives on understanding product lifecycle This one surely rates as a must because of its view on product purely from profitability POV I am not sure about this whole fable style I thought it was silly and took too much space away from re...

    A quick read I m no businessman, but i am a man that has just recently started a business This book was a short intro into the business thinking and i think it does just that The writer has included many interesting references, so as a starter is not a bad book.That said, i didn t do any of the assignments, i read it in a day although the writer insisted on week long intervals between sessions i didn t think about the issues it raised much, and i don t know much about business.All in all, i A quick read I m no businessman, but i am a man that has just recently started a business This book was a short intro into the business thinking...

    Since i wanted to take the author s advice by going slowly through the book, it took me almost 4 months to finish it as I was trying to observe all ideas, And read as much as i can from the other readings that were mentioned through the models.In my opinion 23 models were too much, there were models almost the same with a very small difference between them so i thought it would be better to combine them to avoid the confusion, however, I can say I learned many great and new lessons and ideas.Ps Since i wanted to take the author s advice by going slowly through the book, it took me almost 4 months to finish it as I was trying to observe all ideas, And read as much as i can from the other readings that were mentioned through the models.In my opinion 23 models were too much, there were models almost the same with a very small difference between them so i thought it would be better to combine them to avoid the confusion, however, I can say I lea...

    the summary for this fabulous is that there are many ways to make profit and it is unlikely that your business does all of them People will pay different prices for the same thing in different situations Good profit models are easy to brainstorm and hard to execute YESSS I would recommend this book.

    Patterns for business development One of the best books I ve read delivering inspiration for business development and strategy discussions I am sure I will return to it many times Plus, it comes with a lot of recommendations on further reading.

  8. Jorge Fonseca says:

    Not your typical business book, it s written as a tale, a story, very easy read The concepts thought in the book are interesting but I feel that some of the business models could be the same Non the less, it s a good book.

  9. Adam Ashton says:

    Some interesting ideas in here and some new things I hadn t really read before, but the format didn t allow for any depth or thorough explanations Some nice high level ideas but perhaps lacking real world applicable substance

    My bible for biz models aka Profit Models.I use it not just for the case studies, but as a reference source for ways to extract evencashflow and ultimately profit from any and every business that I touch.A top ten business book for the ages.
