Good reference book. Some chapters are better than others.

Product Management is a poorly defined role in most companies, usually confused with Project Management (which it most definitely is not). Making this the best volume on the art, development and methods of modern Product Management that I have come across so far. A huge book (>700 pages), but one that will continue to stay with me as a reference for years to come.

So far only 2.0, missing a lot of new way of working and methods. Some chapters are good some not. Worth reading!!
