Hello all, I just published a book to help new and aspiring product managers launch their careers - https://amzn.to/37wflQ0. The book includes 200 pages of best practices from what I learned on the job at Amazon, Facebook, and other companies on:

1. Principles: When your product fails to get traction, when your team falls apart, or when you get tough feedback - these are all opportunities to learn principles to become a better PM.

2. Product Development: Learn how to work backwards from the customer problem, identify the right product to build, and execute with your team to bring the product to market.

3. Getting the Job: Understand how to transition to PM from another field, select the right company, and prep for the three most common types of PM interviews - product sense, execution, and behavioral.

The book also includes interviews with product leaders at Airbnb, Amazon, Google, and more.

I dislike business books that repeat one idea ad nauseum or are written by consultants with no practical experience. Hope that you think my book is different :)

This is really interesting and I might pick this up! I'm actually on the other side of the equation. I want to learn how to work better with the PM as an engineer. I'm working in a "startup" environment and we're having some issues working as a team and aligning well.
