The Secret Product Manager Handbook
"Nuggets of product management wisdom and ideas you'll want to hang on your monitor. The book is like having a conversation with a mentor.
Ken H., Growth PM
The book that answers all the questions you have about product management - that no one else talks about. Perfect for new product managers.
When I started in product management, there were no resources for learning product management.
To help new product managers avoid that struggle, for years I’ve been providing that “secret” information in my blog and podcast. And now I’ve finally made TheSecret Product Manager Handbook for real! It’s crammed full of all the things I wish someone had told me when I started.
In The Secret Product Manager Handbook you’ll learn:
- What will make people love your product – it’s not about how “good” the product is!
- How to get the very best from your developers.
- The 5-word phrase that can accelerate sales and marketing.
- The best ways to talk to executives and customers about what you’re building.
What Readers Are Saying
I’ve already taken action on some of the guidance in the book (related to the chapter 'The Business Value of Product Management'). I feel the author has lived through and developed these insights.
From an engineer-turned-product manager
The summary of product management - identify market problems, guide the creation of solutions to those problems, and take the solutions to market - is powerful. As a former engineer, it’s especially important to be reminded of the third point.
I think the book is perfect for junior product managers. It’s unique in that it covers wide range of topics while remaining concise. And the takeaways at the end of the chapters are a nice touch.
Clear and smart
The intro is one of the clearest and smartest explanations of the value a product manager should bring to the table I've ever read.
