"Pretotype It" Translated Into Italian

Thank you to Leonardo Zangrando of The Learning Startup, we have a very high-quality translation of "Pretotype It" into my native language.

I met Leonardo in Silicon Valley less than a month ago. He was impressed with, and a fan of, pretotyping ... and I quickly became a fan of Leonardo. My first instincts were confirmed when Leonardo first suggested, then completed, a great translation of my book in Italian in record time.

After many years in the US, my Italian may be a bit rusty, but I loved the way Leonardo translated my writing and idioms into their Italian counterpart. A very good and very creative effort – in record time.

This adds to the Spanish translation by Julian Dominguez Laperal (here) and there's rumor of a French translation already in progress. There are also more exotic translations in the work, so stay tuned.

Here's a link to the free PDF of Pretotipare – Assicurati di costruire la cosa giusta prima di costruirla bene.

Thank you Leonardo!

New book on pretotyping!

Pretotyping@Work – Invent like a startup, invest like a grownup, by Jeremy Clark.

The book is based on the material from the pretotyping workshops that Jeremy and I have been conducting in the past few months (at Google, Stanford and for several companies.) In addition to introducing several new concepts (e.g., the Return on Pretotyping Investment (RPI) metric), the book does a great job of extending, augmenting and clarifying many of the ideas presented in Pretotype It. Download a free PDF or splurge and buy the Kindle version for $0.99.
