To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
if you regularly or semi-regularly read tech news, you don’t need this book. If you’ve taken any computer science classes, you don’t need this book. If you work in tech or product management, you don’t need this book.
This book is truly a primer, covering many different tech subjects but at a very shallow level. I was very disappointed, as the authors have a breadth of tech experience and could impart some great personal anecdotes and teachings but instead crafted a basic, general book. You would learn more by searching on Google or Wikipedia. This book would be great for someone who has very little tech experience, or for high-school level students who are about to take their first computer courses. The writing comes to abrupt stops at the end of chapters, and there are some grammar/spelling errors.
I did like that there was an extensive glossary at the end of the book.
The authors offer a free resume guide/tutorial if you leave a review, which is how I’m guessing has contributed to their highly positive overall rating.
This book clearly has a very strong marketing team behind it, but not that much substance in the text! While I can't say it's not interesting, it's clearly not aimed at people already working in Product and Tech since it explains very basic tech ideas in a super high-level way. I find tags like "Number 1 Product Management Bestseller" totally misused here. I would say call it more like "Product Management book for non-product people". And btw the language was beyond annoying at times; I understand the strive for a conversational tone, but how many times can you finish a chapter with a question + "Read on." in a 250 page book, seriously :)
This book had a lot of great reviews... I quickly found out why. The authors request that you leave a good review, send them a photo of the review... in return you may connect with them professionally.
The book itself is very high level. Hardly goes into detail around topics of substance. I wouldn’t recommend this book for anyone attempting to have a real conversation around these topics.
Not at all i was expecting. Came across the book researching project management, since the authors come from that world. The intro starts to mention it, and then it completely drops off. Ended up being a waste of my time and money.
