I should start this book much earlier It is a very good guidance for product manager who just breaks into this position and walks through the pm skills However, it isfor shipping software product, especially for google andbecause the author worked a lot in these companies Might agree with everything listed here inside of this book as a PM with two years past experience at Oracle Still, a very useful and practical book for a new pm. Interesting and great at certain points This is quite a light read, but the content is pretty useful for someone who is interested in software development, but who doesn t have any technical background to understand the deep details of it all You can also read it for general knowledge or for fun, because the author does provide many interesting stories about his time atand Google. I think Shipping Greatness is a decent attempt at explaining the nuts and bolts of the software industry Unfortunately it does not comprehensively explain the product engineering process in detail explaining how to set up the development ecosystem like setting up version control software, setting up incident management, the designing process in a littledetail Itslike a business guide for engineers or a technical guide for managers Matter of fact I believe Chris got confused when i I think Shipping Greatness is a decent attempt at explaining the nuts and bolts of the software industry Unfortunately it does not comprehensively explain the product engineering process in detail explaining how to set up the development ecosystem like setting up version control software, setting up incident management, the designing process in a littledetail Itslike a business guide for engineers or a technical guide for managers Matter of fact I believe Chris got confused when it came to addressing the kind of audience that would like this book I m biased because I know Chris AND I m a Product Manager atbut I was honestly impressed by this practical book on Product Management for techies It s filled with solid advice for what it means to own all the aspects of customer experience from feature performance and scalability, to user interface and analytics. I didn t really care for this book or get much out of it, but I m also clearly not the target audience of the book, as I m not a team lead or in charge of shipping anything Maybe I ll read it again if I ever find myself in such a role, but my guess is there s a bunch of other better books out there on this topic.
