Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Take it from the best minds in the industry

    Cons: 

    not really

    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.

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

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 You may want to look into ODI and Market Opportunity Navigator, for those two things.

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!

While the content of the book is sound, I'm not a huge fan of this company (Product School) manipulating the Product Hunt voting system by encouraging their emailing list to come here and upvote in order to receive a free copy of the book. How do you feel about that @rrhoover ?
Ryan HooverPro@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@stefan_vaziri1 I wasn't aware they were doing that. We explicitly say not to ask for (and definitely don't incentivize) upvotes.

@rrhoover a big "UPVOTE AND GET THE BOOK" CTA in their email announcing the launch of this book is probably against the rules here then...it's misleading at best.

Hi @stefan_vaziri1 - First of all, thank you for your upvote. I am glad to see that you like the content of the book. I just want to clarify that there is no incentive to upvote. The book is free for everyone and available on our website. You can find it here: https://www.productschool.com/sh... In response to your feedback to @rrhoover we were not aware of the fact that makers are discouraged from asking their followers to upvote their products on Product Hunt. In fact, that seems to be common practice. I personally have gotten multiple shares and requests for upvotes from other makers on social media, etc. That being said, I will personally review the fine print of the terms of service of Product Hunt and make sure our future messages are 100% in line with the requirements and, most importantly, the spirit of Product Hunt. Hope this clears up the misunderstanding. We are huge fans of Product Hunt and look forward to launching more free products that add value to the community.
