About the book

This book is designed to help new and aspiring product managers land a PM job and jump start their PM career. It's the book that I wish I had when I first got started (you can read some of my PM posts here).

There are many blog posts about product management. But my goal is to give you the best practices on leading without authority, building a product, and landing a job all in one place. The book has five sections:

Principles

1. Principles

Great PMs rely on their leadership skills to rally their team to solve a customer problem. Learn how to resolve conflicts and overcome failures with these core principles.

Product development

2. Product development

Understand the end to end process of how PMs at companies like Amazon and Facebook build products. Learn how to identify a customer problem, set a goal, and build a roadmap.

Execution

3. Execution

Get tips on written communication, running meetings, and keeping your team on track. Learn how to make effective decisions and reach alignment with other stakeholders.

Getting a job

4. Getting a job

Identify the right company to join, understand what hiring managers are looking for, and get ready for PM interviews with practice questions from Google, Facebook, Amazon and more.

5. Product leader interviews

Most of the lessons that I share in this book are based on my own mistakes and failures as a PM. But don't just take it from me - hear directly from product leaders about what they learned from past successes and failures and what they wish they knew when they were starting their PM career.
