Hey product people, I'm thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new book: "Ship it: Silicon Valley Product Managers Reveal All". The book is free for everyone and available on Product School's website. Each of the 10 chapters draws on the wisdom of product leaders from top Silicon Valley companies like Slack, Square, Facebook, Airbnb, Dropbox, Reddit, Optimizely and Robinhood. The theme of this book is understanding: Understanding your customers through research and data, understanding your industry, and understanding yourself. For people who already have our other books (The Product Book and Launch), you’ll find all new insights from PMs at the top of their game. After reading this book, you'll understand how to make informed decisions, how to lead with integrity, how to grow your product career, and how to hire the right PMs for your team. I can't wait to hear what you think!
@villaumbrosia the book is great and covers a lot of themes, but doesnt seem to break new ground. Nonetheless, v.useful for those trying to get into product management

Product School is quite unique in delivering high quality content outside its courses so people who are not even enrolled can still get tons of advice and access to webinars and many other content pieces.

Pros:

Take it from the best minds in the industry

Cons:

not really

I have attended Product School

I like the logos in the book and the people behind them.

Pros:

great companies and advisors

Cons:

nope

Since I'm involved in Project Management myself for more than a decade now I can connect to some of the problems and settings described in the book. I was incredibly invested in the business case examples. One particular topic where the author could have provided some more in-depth explanation is that of Targeting Customers. How exactly should businesses ( especially new businesses) identify & subsequently target customers. Apart from that, I like this book and I think the author has handled the subject perfectly.
@dsarkar Hi D Sarkar - Thank you for the feedback! Our team will be creating more content focused on Targeting Customers! Check our blog for fresh weekly content >> www.productschool.com/blog and we are glad you enjoyed the book! 💥
@dsarkar You may want to look into ODI and Market Opportunity Navigator, for those two things.
@andupotorac Thanks Andu. I will take a look.

The Product Leaders who contributed chapters to this book are true champions. Some give super practical concrete advice. If you're in this situation, here's exactly what you do. Others prefer to focus on the principles. The attitudes, guidelines and ideas that will guide you to make the best decisions in a range of circumstances. All totally knocked it out of the park!
