    Not a book, but a blog posts collection. Good content though., March 12, 2009

    The book is actually a collection of blog posts. This gives an appropriate impression – a number of loosely collected essays, not a real book in sense that Charles Petzold defines the real book: “the type that have traditionally been read sequentially in stretches of an hour or multiple hours without frequent interruptions” […]. This kind of book implies that “the author has spent a lot of time arranging the material in the book into a coherent progression and logic”,
    which is not exactly the case here.

    Some blog posts, included into the book, are pretty outdated, like articles from 2002 (in the SaaS part) – this is usually the case with books, compiled out of blogs. Problem is that blog is inherently a diary-like thing, so some posts are older then the others. And publisher require certain amount of pages …

    Some important items (like project management or requirements management systems) are missing in the relevant sections. This is another problem with books, derived from blogs: blog posts are usually written ‘under influence’ of the moment, so we tend to talk about things that are important to us today, not about all impotant things.

    When you forget that this collection of essays takes the ‘form’ of the book, everything else is actully pretty fine. Essays are organized by topic and are pretty much independent of each other.

    Interesting moments (extremely subjective):
    -pretty good generic discussion of the place of product manager in the organization and “owning the gaps”
    -nice argument about the balancing position of the product manager between engineering and sales
    -good explanation of the differences between various roadmaps for various audiences
    -book emphasizes the importance of what I call “necessary amount of beuracracy” or what the author calls “defensive processes”

    BOTTOM LINE: A fair collection of essays. Probably nothing new for a veteran product manager. Maybe used, but not really, for a complete rookie,simply because of the fact that it’s not a book, hence lack of coherence and flow. Definitely useful reading for a mid-start product manager.

    A great read for all product managers, September 3, 2011

    In The Art of Product Management: Lessons from a Silicon Valley Innovator, Rich Mironov gives a series of quick articles designed for the busy product executive. Each short article tackles a single idea. One of my favorites is Mironov’s analogy of product manager as parent of the product. He also explores where the product management role should report in the organization, roadmapping as a strategic planning tool, and techniques for understanding what customers really need in a product. Of particular note are the sections of pricing and packaging.

    As another reviewer notes, some of the specific technologies and examples mentioned are now obsolete but the concepts remain true over time.

    Mironov’s breezy writing style is fresh and entertaining. The book reads more like a series of conversations than a college thesis, and offers practical advice that you can use right away.

    For a process perspective, see Turn Ideas into Products: A Playbook for Defining and Delivering Technology Products.
