This book basically conveys a few ideas which can be summarized on a sheet of paper. But the author rants on and on about the same concepts. That, to me, is a waste of time.

Absolutely fantastic read. I work in biz dev of a large corporation and I've put many of these ideas into action with impressive results. Read here: complete revitalization of a company acquired in distress in under 5 months. My relations have used it in start ups with similar success.
It's a quick, enjoyable, and easy to relate to read. A lot of people who knocked their reviews down to 3 or 4 starts claimed that they didn't like the writing style and didn't know exactly how to implement his ideas. Here's the answer: as an English major I found his writing very clear, concise, and well organized. The flow was excellent and in no way confusing. If you don't want to feel like you're being lectured, buy a fiction novel, not a book on how to run your company like IMVU.
As for implementation, think outside the box. If you can't even apply concepts in an out-of-context way you probably have more to worry about business-wise than just how to implement principles.
The Triangle Startup Factory, a successful start up director in one of the fastest growing areas in the country, recommends this book to the new companies they onboard. Companies that are receiving millions from investors.
