Machine generated narrated, but good content.

I was a bit turned off to hear the authors'es (intentional) voice on the recording, and had to laugh every time the auto-generated narrators'es (intentional) voice failed to correctly interpret a written possessive statement (see above), but I tried not to let that distract me from the content. The information should help me and anyone else who finds themselves landing in a product manager role. It's a complex, challenging, and rewarding position. This text should be helpful if used as a guideline, but every company's and role's requirements are different. After listening, discuss your takeaways with your supervisor to verify that all the suggested approaches are desired.

Content much too basic

This book could be good perhaps for someone who has not studied business but is much too basic for the target audience described. I listened to the whole book and did not learn anything new.

Really good start for a product manager

Gives a good overview of the key responsibilities including a little personal story, which makes the book fun to listen at/ read. Definitely recommendable!
