"A fantastic overview of product management and product design concepts, divided into sections focusing on People, Process, and Product. Many of the chapters are variations of articles available on the SVPG web site, though here they are revised and packaged as a cohesive guide. (I did help provide feedback on this book prior to its publication, though I'd recommend it even if I hadn't!)"
