Buddha to Bezos - Timeless Principles of Hyper-Adopted Products

"Will people love what I am making?"

This is the greatest fear of all the makers. But then, there are some makers, whose products are hyper-adopted, over and over again. 

The question is, do the greatest makers think in a pattern? Are there underlying principles that are timeless, and can be learned by the rest of us? 

My answer is yes. [Otherwise, it would be a spectacularly lousy book ;-)] 

The book explores this in-depth.


Praises from Makers

“Loved the book. It stripped the builder’s problem down to its bones." -- Rahul Mishra, Fibotalk.com

“The wittiest and most comprehensive book on Product, ever" -- Sid Narayanan, CEO, Kleargroup.com

"I became Naval after I read this book :). Jokes apart, it covers everything about product creation from tons of sources.” -- Madhu GB, Entrepreneur, Hacker

"Recommended for anyone thinking of building a product" -- Avinash Raghav, SaaSBOOMi


The book covers product creation lessons from The Buddha, Jeff Bezos, Christopher Columbus, Sherlock Holmes, Rene Descartes, and more.

It also covers the journeys of some of the recent great products like Segment, ProductHunt (🤟), Google, Facebook, Youtube, and Evernote.

We also touch upon the popular frameworks and books like Hooked, Jobs to be Done, Innovator's Dilemma, BJ Figg Model, and many more.

🎉  What's Special?

My effort is that this is the most comprehensive book on product management, ever. It covers the gist of over: 

 - 7 books,

 - 35 blogs (or videos or tweetstorms),

 - the ideas of 18+ thinkers. 

It covers the entire journey from Problem Discovery to Roadmapping and prioritization. But without any fluff.

Why Another Book on Product?

Most product-related books and blogs are very contextual. A lot of what we learn either cannot be applied to our own situations, or we forget about them, at the time of implementation.

I wanted to write something that is not limited by context. Therefore I have followed such a humongous timeline. All the great ideas in history follow the same pattern of adoption as technology products do today.

Comparing the adoption of Buddism to that of ProductHunt removes most of the fluff. What remains is pure and simple, and therefore very easy to follow.


Now the more important things :-)
