Inspired is great! And so is The Lean Startup. Additional recommendations you can go with: Lean Product Playbook (Dan Olsen) Escaping the Build Trap (Melissa Perri) Lean UX (Jeff Gothelf) Empowered (Marty Cagan) There are a ton, really. Take your time with them!

I’m looking for recommendations as well. So far I’ve read Inspired by Marty Cavan and I’m about to to get the lean startup by Eric Ries
