I’m thrilled to announce that Building Products for the Enterprise is now on sale on Amazon. Ebook versions can be downloaded immediately, and hard copies have begun shipping:
Ben and I wrote this book because we thought it needed to be written. In it, we’ve tried to make a worthwhile contribution to the product management literature out there. We hope you agree that it lives up to that goal. If you do, would you mind leaving a good review? They help. Thanks a lot!
I set up a PDF of the first chapter of my book, The Second Transit, that you can view/download. You can access it here.
If you’re an ebook reader (as I am), you can load this PDF into your device or app of choice; or you can read it however else you like.
Some great news about our book!

There’s news on the book!
Refresher: a few months ago, O’Reilly asked to publish the book that Ben Gaines and I co-wrote this year on product management in enterprise software. We’ve been in editing cycles since then, getting feedback and some really awesome reviews from some big names. I’m super excited for y’all to see the final product.
Based on the feedback we received, we’ve decided to change the name – Make It So is no more. Our new title is Building for Business: Product Management in Enterprise Software. While I loved the Trek reference, I have to concede that it’s a little niche. “Building for Business” is catchier, I think (I mean, for product management – let’s not get carried away), and more germane.
You can learn all about the book at the (new) website: BuildingForBusiness.com. The old site will now redirect there, too. At the site, you can also read a sample chapter and get a heads-up when the book is released. Signups, I’m happy to say, have been brisk.
The book is also now up on O’Reilly’s website, though not available for preorders yet. I’m told that pre-orders will be available prior to publication. Go check it out!
So it’s been a little over a month since I published The Second Transit. I had little or no expectations for how the book would do, so the fact that anyone has read it at all is really amazing for me. My first foray into book self-publishing has given me an up-close look at the tradeoffs of this amazing democratizing platform, so I thought I’d share them.
