Rob Fitzpatrick - The Mom Test: How to talk to customers
Absolute classic. Costs only couple dollars, saves lives. If you don't have time to read even short books, I give you a short summary on how to do customer interview:
- Talk about customer life instead of your idea.
- Ask about specifics in the past instead of generics of opinions about the future.
- Talk less and listen more (active listening).
Here is also a conference video of Rob Fitzpatrick delivering his idea.
Daniel Kahneman - Thinking, Fast and Slow
Why you should read it too: If you could read only one book - that should be "Thinking fast and slow". Learn everything about design, product management, productivity and even human psychology from this book by applying the concept of fast and slow thinking. Amazing!
James Clear - Atomic Habits
Why you should read it too: Drop bad habits and start new using the concepts described in this book.
Why you should read it too: It helps in identifying the life goals and them explains how to achieve them. I always return and re-read certain parts of this book.
