    This is THE book if you are interested for a role as PM. You can be a student or a developer, the book gives you reference for every aspect of the PM role.

    You would want to read this book even if you are a current PM and for beginners, the book eliminates the need of searching about the role online to understand the various aspects of the role. I had been waiting for the book since its announcement by Gayle. And I am very fortunate to receive the book as a gift from Gayle herself.
