I loved it a lot: not only this books describes the structure, roles and processes in the Facebook teams super well, it also tries to explain WHY they work.

The method described in this book is obviously imperfect. Its biggest weakness is that it requires a smart, multi-modal, experienced, persuasive and modest Product Manager in every team: a rare kind!
But this is the best method that the industry has so far, and no magic process, consultant or book had so far been able to overcome this requirem

This is like an encyclopedia on product management and building a product company. It is fully packed with useful recommendations and strategies that are proven to work VS describing the deficiencies in majority of today's Tech organizations and how to work against your success.

The book actually looks like a series of highly concentrated b ...more

4.5-5 stars

Don't mind the terrible title, this is a truly decent book on product management or even better - product-focused organizations.

2. no bullshit -> short, focused chapters, each one with a clear point, without lengthy digressions & drifting around
3. this bo

It’s one of those books that starts from very basics and I wanted to drop it because I didn’t feel I was learning anything new. As the book progressed though, I came to appreciate the concise way the author explained the most important core concepts of product management. How he was able to explain and rationalize complexities of “doing it right” in an “enterprise” environment with lots of Hipos and stakeholders and investors and remind the reader that solving the customers problems is still the ...more

This book will give you a clear understanding of what the Product Manager role in a tech company does. It goes through some good practices and describes many challenges that tech company/ tech startup can face.

If you are interested in learning more about product development, or just speaking "product" language this is a good starting point.

For anyone interested into Product Management this is a great high-level book. If you like starting from the big picture and then zooming in into details, this is the "big picture" book.
