Summary

How do today's most successful tech companies - Amazon, Google, Facebook, Netflix, Tesla - design, develop, and deploy the products that have earned the love of literally billions of people around the world? Perhaps surprisingly, they do it very differently from the vast majority of tech companies. In Inspired, technology product management thought leader Marty Cagan provides listeners with a master class in how to structure and staff a vibrant and successful product organization and how to discover and deliver technology products that your customers will love - and that will work for your business.

With sections on assembling the right people and skillsets, discovering the right product, embracing an effective yet lightweight process, and creating a strong product culture, listeners can take the information they learn and immediately leverage it within their own organizations - dramatically improving their own product efforts. Whether you're an early stage start-up working to get to product/market fit or a growth-stage company working to scale your product organization or a large, long-established company trying to regain your ability to consistently deliver new value for your customers, Inspired will take you and your product organization to a new level of customer engagement, consistent innovation, and business success.

Filled with the author's own personal stories - and profiles of some of today's most successful product managers and technology-powered product companies, including Adobe, Apple, BBC, Google, Microsoft, and Netflix - Inspired will show you how to turn up the dial of your own product efforts, creating technology products your customers love.

The first edition of Inspired, published 10 years ago, established itself as the primary reference for technology product managers and can be found on the shelves of nearly every successful technology product company worldwide. This thoroughly updated second edition shares the same objective of being the most valuable resource for technology product managers, yet it is completely new - sharing the latest practices and techniques of today's most successful tech product companies and the men and women behind every great product.

Excellent book - definitely a ‘Go-to’ book

Great book narrated by the author, which added authenticity.

Thank you for the value you share - practical advice that can immediately be put into practice.

Excellent book for those involved with product development, leading product development teams and those considering a change in role.

Highly recommended and I’ll be purchasing the paper book to keep handy on my shelf and highlight as required.

Insightful and full of useful practical guidance

It always helps when a book is narrated by the author. Good advice on how to do it properly from someone who has evidently spent years in the business. Very useful.

the new testament in agile product management

if you think it's not worth reading the 2nd edition having read the first then you're missing out. this time around everything is rewritten to talk to organisations delivering at scale.

Amateurish quality

Little insights but I had a feeling that I was listening to an amateur podcast. Insights felt like I'm reading articles and there's just a little hook between the ideas - it's not at an audible/audiobook quality standard. I'd love to return and get a refund if possible.

Depressing nonsense

There might be something worthwhile about this book but it's hard to find. At ~50% of the way through I gave up.

audio is strange. noticeable audio edits.

Performance is strange. One can hear the voice change mid sentence like it was recorded at a different time in a different environment..

Must-read (listen) for any product manager

Although the book is off to a somewhat slow and not that exciting start explaining org charts and different stakeholders applicable to larger companies, the second part of it finally gets to a bunch of practical info and good advices on how to build solid products. Definitely a must-read.

Bad recording devalues this product

Amazon should junk this recording and re-record with a professional reader.

I find it amazing that the author has all these great ideas on product management, but he doesn't apply any of them to the recording of this audiobook.

The recording jarringly shifts in both audio quality and pitch on approximately every 10th sentence. It's obvious that some editor went back and re-recorded certain passages, and then stitched the final audio product together in an amateurish way.

Also, the author overdoes the emphasis. He must inflects his voice to raise the implied importance of a passage way too often. This happens so often that the listener just starts zoning out. It's like listening to a business leader that prioritizes everything as #1.

I'm sure there's lots of great product management ideas in here somewhere, but they get lost in the poor reading.

Great book, terrible audio wanted to ask a refund

I learned a lot of ideas on Product Management from Marty in this book and would gladly recommend, maybe the Kindle version. They have fixed the original audiobook with revisions and there are three sets of voices and that is disconcerting to listen. They have cheapened out instead of re-recording the v2 of the book as a whole from scratch again.

Fantastic Book on Product!

This book is a mind opener about product and the key roles involved. All concepts are clearly explained and what I liked most is that the "why" behind them was always brought to light. A must have for any serious product manager and anyone who wants do understand how great product teams work.

Excellent, but not for audio.

This is a really nice reading for product people, but it is an extensive collection of lessons, with a lot of hierarchical thinking that is not well suited for an audiobook. Beyond that, I've noticed a strange voice change during the narrative - it felt that the author cut and added things in different momments. I've bought some hardcover versions for product friends, but in audiobook format I wouldn't recommend it.

A must read for any one who lives and breathes product!

Amazing book and very informative starting from the why all the way to the how! It certainly left me with a great toolkit to apply and extend on!
