Christmas Gifts for Software Product Managers for less than $100


It is that part of the year where everyone is thinking of gifts. If you are a software product manager and you are looking to improve your software product management skills by spending $100 on yourselves, here are three books I recommend for you (I have no association with any of these authors)

  1. Inspired: How To Create Products Customers Love by Marty Cagan – $25.76
  2. Customer Visits: Building a Better Market Focus by Edward McQuarrie – $39.35
  3. Product Strategy for High Technology Companies by Michael E. McGrath – $32.76 (I am still reading this and so far I have found it to be an excellent book)

What do you think? Would you substitute any of the above with any other excellent books you have read? What else would you add to this list?

    Hi Gopal

    I just came across your article “Is Product Management Needed In a Software Startup?”

    The information provided is quite valuable.

    Thanks a lot !

  2. A couple of other good books I’d recommend are:
    by Luke Hohmann
    by Rich Mironov

    Also, I haven’t read it yet but expect the new book to be good.

  3. HTML got scrambled in previous post … here are the correct links (hopefully):

    Innovation Games: Creating Breakthrough Products Through Collaborative Play by Luke Hohmann
    The Art of Product Management: Lessons from a Silicon Valley Innovator by Rich Mironov

    The Power of Co-Creation: Build It with Them to Boost Growth, Productivity, and Profits by Venkat Ramaswamy and Francis Gouillart
