Decode and Conquer: here's what readers say

This community and Lewis Lin is the best. Just heard back from Uber, it’s a yes! 🙏  I had interviewed there twice before over the years, but it wasn’t until I encountered Lewis, his materials, and this community that I was finally able to crack it.

I am a Zimbabwean who has been living in China for the last 8 years. No direct PM experience but your 2-week PM guide has been incredibly useful. I have also been reading 'Decode and Conquer’ which has gotten me up to speed really fast. Brilliant book!

I purchased Decode and Conquer - Answers to Product Management Interview and after reading it 10-15 times, was able to crack the interview processes at Microsoft, Amazon and UBER. Just wanted to convey my thanks for writing a special book with very relevant examples that helped me sail through. Also special mention to your recommended strategy of preparing mock-ups and screen visuals before the interview to win interviewer's heart.

Hi Lewis, I am sure you might not remember me, but we at Georgia Tech, I am 1st year MBA student. I wanted to let you know that I will be an intern at Google this summer, all thanks to platform you have created, without it I wouldn't get the practice I needed to succeed, your book was a major help as well.

Lewis, I am a current second year student at [top-tier business school]. If you remember, we had met during your session here last month, and I had mentioned how I had found your workshop and book useful for securing the internship at Amazon and was about to interview with Google. I have gone through the recruiting process with Google as well, and have an offer from them as well now for a full time role. Thanks again for all the help through the process through your material!

Hey Lewis! Hope you are doing well. Just wanted to share some good news - I landed a PM internship at Google this summer. Thanks for all your help, it was really useful! Let me know if I can ever repay the favor.

Your books are brilliant. I bought a couple of them. Keep up the good work Lewis.

I have just about finished your book Decode and Conquer and have found it to be enlightening. I feel that I already have drastically reduced the amount of PM interviews that I would have failed with a deer in the headlights look on my face:)

Hi Lewis Lin. Hope you are doing good. I am placed in a startup in Chennai as Associate Product Manager. I am so excited !! Thank you for all the help 😊

I recently recommended your book Decode and Conquer to a friend preparing for a PM interview and he was so grateful.

Your books and this Slack channel are much needed. Thank you for the value you provide.

Thanks a lot @lewislin for publishing the books and creating this community. This helped me get an offer.

Thank you so much for this wonderful group. It has been so helpful. 

Your book Decode & Conquer is very insightful and acting as virtual guide and mentor for change seekers like me.

I have just had a chance to read your Decode and Conquer and wanted to thank you for sharing your valuable experience for aspiring Product Managers like me.

Your book, Decode & Conquer, has been immensely helpful for me understanding "product speak", since my professional background is actually in Sales & Marketing.

I hope you're having a great Labor Day weekend! I'm spending most of my time off practicing for my Facebook rPM interview in about two weeks.

Thank you for creating an amazing community on Slack as well to practice mock interviewing!

Love your book "Decode and Conquer"! After reading it, I decided to check out your website and noticed you've posted n-day guides to prepping for Google, Amazon, Uber PM interviews.

Loved your session today. I have worked in startups for the last 5 years in India and looking to get into product management roles. Enjoyed reading Decode and Conquer.

Just wanted to share my gratitude for your work! Bought Decode & Conquer and enjoying every page :)

The Product Manager Interview: here's what readers say

I'm a first year MBA student at [West Coast university] and we met when you were on campus at the end of last year for a Product Management workshop. I got my Decode and Conquer copy signed by you after the session. I wanted to inform you that both Decode & Conquer and 150 PM Interview Questions books helped me immensely in my preparation for PM interviews, particularly since I was trying to transition from a Consulting background. I have successfully landed the Sr.PM internship role with Amazon for this Summer, and it was my target company. I would like to thank you for the content you've provided and material covered in your books! Hands down the best questions I've come across in my preparation. Thank you again, and good luck with your future work. :)

I want to begin by saying that your books have been the coaching / guidance I needed all along. I come from a background of Business Analysis and have been looking to make a transition to Product Management. I have done some bits of Product Management without knowing I was actually doing that. Going through your book, website helped me organize myself in not only my job search, but also in my current job. 

I have all your books and PM interview courses. I really like how you make things simple to understand. 

Interview Mathhere's what readers say

I love your book. Thank you for your help!

I find your book highly useful to tackle case interviews.

I've been working through Interview Math, and I wanted to thank you for providing us with this very helpful resource.


Hey Lewis, Just wanted to follow up and say thanks a lot for writing the book. It was a lot of "simple" concepts but the fact that you aggregated it all in one place was very valuable. Oh and I got the job!

Rise Above the Noisehere's what readers say

I'm applying for a product marketing role at Google on Wednesday. I just finished working through your book Rise Above the Noise, and wanted to say thank you so much for such a valuable resource

Reading Rise Above the Noise landed me my dream job as a Microsoft Product Marketing Manager for their marketing rotational program.

Five Minutes to a Higher Salaryhere's what readers say

Many [salary negotiation books] are full of fluff. This is hard won knowledge with scripts and email templates for every scenario. Highly recommend.


Thanks for sharing the excellent essay -- perhaps it is worth of many books :) Every job seeker must have it.

Thanks a lot for sharing the insightful essay.

Thank you for coining a great set of characteristics for good and bad interview candidates. I am in the process of preparing to an interview. Your essay underlines and complement many ideas I was thinking about. Very good read. I truly enjoyed it!

Lewis - Thanks for sending this/putting this together. Completely appropriate and nice riff on BH's tome! More of these please.

Loved the 10 points you have outlined in the essay!
