I read a ton of agile books, and this is by far one of the best ones I’ve ever picked up. My biggest complaint with most agile books is they’re around a singular idea; they go deep into a particular attribute or practice…sadly there’s a dearth of books that cover not only a ton of “agile” ground but give enough details to make you want to dive in further…this book hits on all of it. Cynefin, beyond budgeting, sociocracy, XP practices, metrics…and that’s not even half of the concepts contained therein. There’s a Q&A at the end of every chapter, along with suggested reading and links for further insight. I love it.
If you’re looking for a book to give to that one person you’re working with that “gets it”, and could use a “sheep dip” into a wide body of concepts to help accelerate their journey…get them this book.
