Steven Sloss I usually give this reading list to friends and colleagues when they want to learn more about product-y roles: PM Resources Product-Specific * Everything from Marty Cagan at SVPG (https://svpg.com/articles/) * Marty Cagan’s book _Inspired: How to Create Tech Products Customers Love_ (defines end-to-end how high-performance product organizations run) (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35249663-inspired) * _The Lean Startup_ from Eric Ries (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10127019-the-lean-startup) Intersection of Product and Strategy * Stratechery (subscription-based, but very worth it. Ben Thompson is a phenomenally talented business analyst) (https://stratechery.com) * _Competing Against Luck_ from Clayton Christensen (dives into “Jobs to be Done” in depth) (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/28820024-competing-against-luck) * _Crossing the Chasm_ (helped refined my mental models for how users adopt new tech) (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61329.Crossing_the_Chasm?from_search=true&qid=oQw1vUoGg4&rank=1) * _Map the Future_ from Michael Mace (not actually about mapping the future; it’s mostly concerned with tools to help understand the competitive landscape) (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19255919-map-the-future) Leadership and Management: * _Managing Humans_ by Michael Lopp (it’s the best intro to tech management book I’ve found, and I’ve read a lot) (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1317946.Managing_Humans) * _Thanks for the Feedback_ (changed how I approach difficult conversations (in both directions)) (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18114120-thanks-for-the-feedback?from_search=true&qid=OeByCSYPYp&rank=1) * The Five Disfunctions of a Team (parable about how to create high-trust teams so that you can have productive conversations) (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/21343.The_Five_Dysfunctions_of_a_Team)
