The sessions were an introduction to Product Management. Almost all of us in the cohort were from other domains and these sessions were an eye opener to the Product management mindset that one needs to inculcate to perform well in this domain. There were practical assigments at the end of each session for review in the next session. Subhodip has been a great mentor and I highly recommend everyone to take his sessions.

I had only one opening session with Subhodip, It was very effective. Subhodip was patient enough to hear what I'm looking for and he also clearly told me what he can provide. He is a good listener and understands us well instead of forcing his thought on us. Overall it was a great session and I decided to continue taking his mentorship.

ReWork - Change the Way You Work Forever
David Heinemeier Hansson, Jason Fried

From the founders of the trailblazing software company 37signals, here is a different kind of business book - one that explores a new reality. Today, anyone can be in business. Tools that used to be out of reach are now easily accessible. Technology that cost thousands is now just a few pounds or even free. Stuff that was impossible just a few years ago is now simple. That means anyone can start a business. And you can do it without working miserable 80-hour weeks or depleting your life savings. You can start it on the side while your day job provides all the cash flow you need. Forget about business plans, meetings, office space - you don't need them. With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who's ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs who want to get out, and artists who don't want to starve anymore will all find valuable inspiration and guidance in these pages. It's time to rework work.
