"Tired of boring business books? Jump into Christina's delightful story about teams figuring out how to work together. Before you know it, you'll be a pro at some of the most useful management techniques."
-- Braden Kowitz, Product Designer and Co-Founder at Range
"We talk a lot about autonomous and empowered teams but there's far too little real world advice on how to actually make it happen. In this excellent book, Christina does just that. Through engaging storytelling and simple frameworks she introduces a practical cadence of goals, feedback, and self-improvement we can all adopt to successfully build high performing, learning teams."
-- Martin Eriksson, Founder of Product Tank and Co-Founder of Mind the Product
"What if you could learn the secrets of self-managing teams like the best ones you hear about in tech startups? And what if you could learn them through a simple and compelling story about someone like you who is dealing with familiar challenges every day? And what if you could learn them from someone who has spent decades practicing, learning, and teaching these principles to those great teams? That's exactly what you'll get in Christina Wodtke's tour de force, The Team that Managed Itself."
-- Bruce McCarthy, Founder, Product Culture
"The simplicity of Christina's techniques and canvases is very powerful. Buy this book if you want to accelerate your team through the storming-norming-performing curve. Her suggested approach for team member feedback is worth the price of the book alone."
-- Richard Atherton, Partner, First Human
"In this new book, Christina has tackled what I consider the most important problem in the tech industry. Only a small fraction of product teams are working at their potential, and while there are many reasons, this is the responsibility of management, or the lack thereof. People that care enough to provide the level of coaching to help their people become first competent, and then exceptional at their craft."

That way to tell a story with its up and downs, to explain in a natural way the problems, the search for solutions, the frustration in the Start-Up world is marvellous. So, the second part of the book explaining the theory behind it is a natural fit, a really easy way to learn something.
So I bought this one also and I am not disappointed at all.
It's much longer and no so easy to read. The writer explains it at the beginning of the book, it's a more mature book. And also with much more things and experiences to learn from. Deeper experiences.
Really, I would like Cristina to write books about all my interest!
I was reading the book some month ago and am now listening to the audiobook. And it fascinates me anew how Christina Wodtke managed to write a book that allows me as a reader to dive so deeply into an exciting story and learn so many important and helpful things along the way.
My favourite part is where Allie (the main character of the story, just recently promoted to GM) is in a meeting with a mentor developing the role-description/employee profile for the new to hire Design Lead. In this section, it becomes clear how much work is needed to create even the seemingly simple things like a candidate profile. But it also shows how far you can come with a good sparring partner and a single meeting.
This maybe is the main message for me: Being a Manager in the world of empowered teams might be complex and challenging and it's definitely a lot of work. But everyone can do it with a little help and a good book at hand!
