Book Reviews

  • The most common error I see PMs make during interviews is being unprepared. You may be a great PM but interviewing is a different skill and like the SATs, it gets better with prep. My recommendation for PM interview prep is Cracking the PM Interview. to Tweet
  • @BenOgorek I’d recommend grabbing @jackiebo’s book on the topic which does the subject more justice than I can in 280 characters. to Tweet

About Book

How many pizzas are delivered in Manhattan? How do you design an alarm clock for the blind? What is your favorite piece of software and why? How would you launch a video rental service in India? This book will teach you how to answer these questions and more. Cracking the PM Interview is a comprehensive book about landing a product management role in a startup or bigger tech company. Learn how the ambiguously-named "PM" (product manager / program manager) role varies across companies, what experience you need, how to make your existing experience translate, what a great PM resume and cover letter look like, and finally, how to master the interview: estimation questions, behavioral questions, case questions, product questions, technical questions, and the super important "pitch."
