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.

The Mom Test: the bible (in my opinion) of how to understand what customers want and avoid the biases that nearly everyone in B2B falls prey to. This is among the books I recommend the most to B2B founders and senior product people.

A lot of the advice that I'll present today is actually synthesized fantastically in this book actually written by a YC founder called, "The Mom Test."
