Zero To PM

Very well written and easy to follow. This book hits the goal of providing an overview for those looking to break into product management role.

There is a lot of wisdom spread over the internet about how to break into product management. Albeit, content on the internet comes with a lot of noise. I wrote this book to provide aspiring product managers with a consolidated guide filled with the fundamental knowledge and practical, actionable tips to break into product management.

The purpose of this book is to provide the readers a better understanding of the product management landscape, help them identify the skills they need to develop and chalk out a plan to break into product management.

This is not a Product Management reference book. This book is not to be considered as "everything there is to know about product management" or a book that contains shortcuts to get into the field. This is NOT an exhaustive collection of all the resources you will need to become a product manager.

Think of this book as a guide that will show you what the product management journey holds for you, equip you with the basic necessities, and put you on the hassle-free path to the starting point in case you decide to take on the journey.

If you have been looking for a 'Demystifying Product Management' guide minus the jargon and frills, your search ends here. 4 hours well spent!
