5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Way to Learn & Confirm Product Management, July 21, 2006
This review is from: Software Product Management Essentials (Paperback)
As I went to go and post a review of this book, I was shocked to see some of the negative reviews that are here. This book was fantastic in that it was simple, clear, and comprehensive. I've been a product manager for over 15 years and have managed product managers for the last 7. I work in a very successful software company and have been a successful PM. I was looking for a tool to help train my staff and this book was recommended by one of my colleagues at another company who is also a succsssful manager of PMs. I am glad I listened to my friend and not the people who think they know too much and need boast this via an Amazon book review. From my perspective, this book really helps - it helps new PMs understand what they are expected to do and how to do it. It also confirmed for me what I should expect of my employees and gave me some really staightforward tools to use, even after all these years. If you want a solid and accurate view of software product management, this is it. If the book missed anything, it was how to deal with unfulfilled engineering types....maybe next version?
