The style is very casual and reflects the Agile culture. The real take-away is the Inception Deck as originally developed within ThoughtWorks (note: yes, I have worked for them too). Many Agile (Scrum) projects kick-off without asking these 10 tough questions and are forced to fix more misunderstandings down the track.
One reviewer refers to this book as "Starter course for agile managers" and indeed the material is lightweight and simple to read. However in real-life this is very hard to master. The simplicity of the book therefore reminds me to stick to the basics when handling the day-to-day complexity.
Wherever you are on the agile spectrum, picking this up and giving it a read is going to be worthwhile. You may not agree with everything or be able to put it all into practice, but if you pay attention to what the author is getting at, you will have to think about how and why you do what you do the way you do.
Overall, I think every developer would benefit a great deal from reading this.
The programming aspects were conveyed in a solid manner, and the writer did a good job of conveying the intention of agile without imposing a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Recommended for starters and those moving to a different role within agile projects.
