Ben Love
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.
Johan Oskarsson
So far only 2.0, missing a lot of new way of working and methods. Some chapters are good some not. Worth reading!!
Lori Grant
A must-read book on product management for knowledge workers and entrepreneurs.
