Starting up a business involves creatively coming up with many ideas, sorting out the most promising ones, testing prototypes, and launching the enterprise. The process involves an incredible number of failures. The book sets out a philosophy of intelligent fast failure (IFF) in which each failed attempt provides knowledge that can quickly result in new ideas, and so on. Each failure is a knowledge building block in fully understanding how to become successful. The IFF model is applied to a number of case studies so that the reader is constantly introduced to how successful businesses are launched and how businesses can ultimately fail. The IFF philosophy can be applied more broadly to all forms of human endeavor that require new, innovative, and radical solutions.
