Want a free copy of ‘The Practitioner’s Guide …’?

After my general giddiness the other week, I can reassure everyone that I have regained a modicum of the reserve for which Brits are better known :-)

Piatkus book news and blogIf you’d like the chance to get hold of a free copy of The Practitioner’s Guide to Product Management, the publisher Piatkus is running a giveaway, so pop on over for a chance to win.

Just after Christmas, I ran a draw for five free, signed copies of my book for people who attended my talk at Product Management Festival in Zürich earlier in the year. The lucky winners drawn out of the hat (okay, a spreadsheet with a random number function) were:

John Ronald

Helen Vogt

Vlad Ciruca

Matthias Müller

Jamie Keene

Feedback on the book has been lovely, so my warmest thanks to all of you who’ve had read it, especially those who bought, rather than stole*, their copy.

(Being a complete newb to this sort of thing, there have been a couple of weird things I’ve noticed about the whole launching-a-book thing. One was that there were used copies of my book available as soon as it was launched. There are clearly some very quick readers working in the Amazon warehouse.)

Until next time!

* Don’t steal your copy, mmmkay?
