This is brilliant. This book is motivational, inspirational and is full of useful and actionable advice. It is a must-read for Software Engineers, Indiehackers, Entrepreneurs and anyone who wants to build something. I will reread this book one more time soon. Certainly, I see myself rereading it many times in the future.

Notes

Interface Design

Design for regular, blank, and error states
For each screen, you need to consider three possible states:

Regular
The screen people see when everything’s working
fine and your app is flush with data.

Blank
The screen people see when using the app for
the first time, before data is entered.

Error
The screen people see when something goes wrong.
