It goes through how to run an agile project management process in a really well thought out manner. I used this book as a resource - without any prior knowledge of agile - and feel that I was able to successfully implement a scrum program for my teams because of how well this book laid out the process.
The authors have read nearly every other important book on the subject (they are clearly credited in the text) and combine ideas from Lean, and from Kanban variants of agile into an extremely well written description of how to implement scrum.
Dan and Doug's experience very much shines through as at times they really will get into things that I would normally consider minutia. The language is simple, very easy to read, and clearly well edited.
My description does not do this book justice... go out and buy it if you are interested in agile at all...
The glossary is one of the best on the web for Scrum and Agile!
The structure and organization of each chapter makes it very easy to reference anything you need quickly.
His book is an extension to that with more details in the world of scrum from practical perspective.
Definitely recommend it for avid Scrum practitioners.
