    Is always amazing to learn about the experience and stories of the top product managers. With an excellent design, it makes the reading flows.

    This book at best is a teaser or may be rough notes of all the ProductCon Talks from various practicing product managers. Yet another motley crew kind of collection from Product School. It has been my observation ever since I read such books stitched from talks of various experts, though they might have some insights in them, they fail to deliver in depth knowledge about any single topic and also fail to build over each others insights, and the net results remains a very shallow book with some tr This book at best is a teaser or may be rough notes of all the ProductCon Talks from various practicing product managers. Yet another motley crew kind of collection from Product School. It has been my observation ever since I read such books stitched from talks of various experts, though they might have some insights in them, they fail to deliver in depth knowledge about any single topic and also fail to build over each others insights, and the net results remains a very shallow book with some trailer type rushes about product management. A little knowledge is a very dangerous thing, and this book does very little justice to Product Management discipline as a whole. The reader is expected to visit each of the talks associated with these articles to get the complete picture! Not at all impressed.

    Ótimo livro pra quem está começando na área. Para quem já começou, eles abordam uma série de assuntos que normalmente não se fala tanto nas comunidades. Como é um livro muito pequeno, faz sentido todo mundo da área ler. Particularmente não gosto de livros feitos de um alinhado de artigos, mas é interessante a mistura de ideias e pontos de vista sobre assuntos diversos da profissão de PM.

    Honestly, it’s a 3,5, but you really should know what to expect. This isn’t a book with deep knowledge, but rather a conspect of different ideas presented by people with various experiences. If you look at it as a mind-freshener, it’s a 4. If you want to learn something really new, it’s a 2,5. But generally, this is an okay light reading with some helpful advice, that’s why I rounded it up

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Contains advice by product people in established tech companies about specific topics. Good for beginners as a starting point to gauge terms and language. Id suggest complement further with blogs, courses, other books and most importantly: trying out a project yourself to flesh out your product skills.

    A great quick read for people who are curious about product management or aspiring to be one. I love reading insights, advice and stories from professionals in the field. This also lead me to watch some of the speaker’s full talk on YouTube.

    A tiny book to get overall remarks from 17 PMs of Silicon Valley. My favorites in this collection are; - How to achieve product market fit - The only metric that matters - A product centric overview of machine learning - Product driven growth - AI for fun and profit

    Yesterday’s delighters become today’s performance features and tomorrow’s must-haves. The Product world is changing so quickly that backgrounds are less relevant than talent and intelligence.
