how f'd up is your management?

Saw this one on amazon when perusing books on agile and team management, took a chance on the kindle version. Surprisingly relevant -- I seem to be on a very similar track as Johnathan Nightingale, although maybe five or ten years behind him. A lot of his startup experience resonated deeply with me, especially the consequences of naive product management.

If you've spent time in the trenches; if you've developed contempt; if you're convinced that the problem is not the tech, but perhaps something else... You're not alone. This was a very cathartic read.

And a quick read, too. It took maybe three or four sessions, and because it was based on blog posts it's very digestable in small portions. This book also pointed me in the direction of many other influential articles and books that I hadn't yet come across, which I appreciated.
