Reading Notes

A lot of what I’ve learned in product management was either discovered or solidified through books, articles and other media. I’ve decided to make a summary of my notes available to my audience.

These summaries are meant to serve as a reminder of the key concepts and are not meant to replace reading the materials first hand. I often come back to my readings, as I find that my understanding have matured over time, allowing me to take new insights each time.

The Goal by Eliyahu M. Goldratt (8/10)

I wish I had read this book earlier in my life. It completely changed the way I looked at problems and gave a powerful process for conducting root cause analysis for the process of continuous improvement. A must read for product managers (though not limited to it!).

Building a Second Brain by Thiago Forte (6/10)

The book addresses a key challenge that product managers face- knowledge management. Thiago shares actionable tips to manage our notes (spread across wiki, google docs, email, etc..) so that we can free up our brains for creative thinking.
