The list author says: "Product Managers ask me all the time to recommend books which can help them either start out in product management, or improve their product management effectiveness. These are my favorites."
"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!)"
"While technically for all in product management, I think it's probably better suited for those new to product management. It's a great, easy-to-read introduction that includes a lot of good tips and nuggets of wisdom about how to operate effectively within an organization as a product manager."
"Though more appropriate for those working in smaller companies and new to product management, even experienced product managers in larger organizations will benefit from this concise and easy-to-read book."
"Though it is not specifically about the role of product management, it is one of the best books covering how to deliver products which resonate with the market. The Tuned In blog (http://www.tunedinblog.com/) is a great supplement to the examples in the book, or for anyone looking for a quick introduction to the basic concepts."
"A very straightforward and concise text that provides excellent advice for a few key aspects of the product management role, including product roadmaps, beta programs, product launches, and review programs."
"A collection of "rules" on product management from leading product managers around the world. (I wrote one of the rules, so I'm a bit biased, of course.) This shouldn't be your first book on product management, but if you're looking for a quick read / refresher with some practical tips and nuggets of wisdom from a variety of product managers in the real world, this should be worth your while."
"The book is a based on a collection of articles Rich has published under the Product Bytes name from 2002-2008 (http://www.mironov.com/articles/). Covering a wide variety of topics, including Agile product management, pricing, market research, and organizational / political issues, the book is easy to read and full of great tips and ideas, especially for high-tech products."
