My manager gave me a copy of Product Management’s Sacred Seven when I joined Microsoft and I found it super helpful. The premise is the FAANG PM authors teach you the 7 core skills (design, econ, psych, ux, ds, law & policy, and growth) that you need to know to be a great pm and get a top PM job. Its surprisingly thorough and meaty at 700 pages but well worth the time investment.

Product school has a bunch of free resources - blog posts, video sessions regularly live streamed, sample resumes etc

Inspired, the product book by product school, hooked, Escaping the build trap, measure what matters, innovators dilemma, extreme programming explained (my personal fav under rated book) For interviews cracking the PM and decode are classic standards
