The list author says: "This list contains a list of must read books for every Product Manager. It includes topics covering design, product management, agile, and presentations. These are books I have read and recommend, this is not a list of catch-all books on the subject of Product Management like other lists."
"This is my new all-time favorite product management book. This book is one of the most pragmatic and to-the-point books on the topic. I would make this required reading for all new product managers and ANY start-up. This book gives the reader the core tools to build a new product/service."
"Absolute MUST HAVE for any product manager. This covers a complete interaction design process for products and services. If you think Interaction Design is about the UI, then you are way off the mark. Interaction Design is about building the behavior of a product or service utilizing research, business validation, modeling, design requirements, and much more."
"I know Product Managers are not designers. But I would argue that they need to change and learn more about design to build better products and services. Design oriented companies are the emerging trend--focusing purely on market analysis is slowly becoming obsolete."
"One of the most readable books I have ever read. It covers the topic of user stories and agile principles extremely well. This is probably the only book a product manager would need on agile development."
"Design Thinking is an emerging trend that involves companies building products and services that are better designed for the consumer and company brand. Design oriented companies outperformed their counterparts and most major stock indexes."
"One of the two BEST BOOKS on presentations and overall design principles. If you do any presentations and are using lots of bullet points with lots of words--then your presentations are terrible. A good presentation could literally mean the difference between success and failure--stop compromising."
"One of the hardest parts of agile development is communicating schedules to other stakeholders. It could be argued if that is really needed when everyone has complete visibility into the development process, however this book covers how to estimate agile development."
