Former PM here. The Product & Project management jobs vary tremendously by company, and even within a company. Your best bet is to reach out to people who've had similar jobs in the same company and ask them for advice.

That said, I highly recommend The Innovator's Dilemma[0] and Inspired: How to Create Products Customers Love[1]

In the forward of my copy of Design of Everyday Things, the author points out that he could have used computers and mobile devices as but the examples he provides gave me a much deeper understanding of design. That being said, i still plan on buying the new edition because of the new chapters, brand new examples and ideas on implementation that may be more helpful to a dev-signer like yourself.

I read this one: http://www.amazon.com/Inspired-Create-Products-Customers-Lov...

Inspired: How To Create Products Customers Love by Marty Cagan

It's short, well written and covers several visions (product, engineering, etc).

To add a few that span outside entrepreneurship, but are of course very valuable to entrepreneurs:

Inspired: How To Create Products Customers Love (http://www.amazon.com/Inspired-Create-Products-Customers-Lov...) - The best if not only required reading for product management

Peopleware (http://www.amazon.com/Peopleware-Productive-Projects-Teams-S...) - Great read on managing and understanding people as it relates to organizations

Managing Humans (http://www.amazon.com/Managing-Humans-Humorous-Software-Engi...) - Obviously on management, you can read much on this http://randsinrepose.com/, though the book does a great job of consolidating it
