Be wary

"Strong Poduct People"is little more than little more than a compendium of lessons of lessons learned from other books. Be wary of any book we book that leads the the building authority authority section with "I did meet <name drop> but in their book on <title drop>..."
I made it a little over 3 hours into this read/listen, but but could not suffer past the endless reading of reference URL's you are else. The voicings were fine, but ust a smidge of directorial vision could have eliminated the suffrage.
As for product expertise, the author could have put their product hat on to deliver content we need, yet struggle to find elsewhere. Unfortunately, they did nothing of the sort.
Save your time and money... look elsewhere for stellar content.

An essential book for product people at every leve

Much more than simply a catalogue of directions, tools or techniques, Strong Product People maps out the entire product landscape in a way that provides orientation and encouragement. Executives will gain insight into how their organizations really work, and beginners will see where the product journey can lead. Highly recommended!

Interesting content, annoying distractions

The content was great but I must have listened to what felt like a third of the book to descriptions about where to find illustrations and references. I get it, they are important and they were helpful, but it's super distracting that every short chapter ends with minutes of descriptions of URLs. Also since there are so many chapters they really should be named according to the topic. Great book, but the most awful audiobook experience I've had, and I must have listened close to a hundred of them. Petra, please re-record this book! It's too good to be ruined by poor audiobook UX!
