Summary

"No one asked you to show up." Every experienced product manager has heard some version of those words at some point in their career. Think about a company. Engineers build the product. Designers make sure it has a great user experience and looks good. Marketing makes sure customers know about the product. Sales get potential customers to open their wallets to buy the product. What more does a company need? What does a product manager do? 

Based upon Product School’s curriculum, which has helped thousands of students become great product managers, The Product Book answers that question. Filled with practical advice, best practices, and expert tips, this audiobook is here to help you succeed! 

Product School offers product management classes taught by real-world product managers, working at renowned tech companies like Google, Facebook, Snapchat, Airbnb, LinkedIn, PayPal, Netflix, and more. The classes are designed to fit into your work schedule, and they're offered online and in 15 campuses worldwide.

Liked it but too short

Nice overview for a beginner coming from development. Well written. Easy to grasp it all. Voice slightly robotic. Book to short.

Excellent!

This is the book to read if you are trying to transition in to product management. That is my aim from product design and it has a tone of concise advise.

I was hoping for more

Struggled to listen to it Book covers mostly just the basics and the robotic voice makes listening difficult.

A good introduction to Product Management

Being a product manager for the last 7 years, I didn't think I was going to learn anything new and I didn't. However, what it did do was refresh my ideas of handling different scenarios that I have either been slacking on or admittedly out right complacent in.

I recommend this for anyone aspiring to be, just started, or like me thrown into Product Management. It will help you dig up reasons "why" and help you create a process - especially if nobody is teaching you the process.

Paired with the "Personal MBA" by Josh Kaufman you will feel a lot more enriched, especially if you do not have an MBA.
