Now, the quality of the content is good. It's well written and informative. But it's also expensive, short, and I didn't even know this was a thing to look for, but the paper quality is lower than a newspaper. If you're thinking of using a highlighter or marker to notate passages, think twice, it'll bleed through.
I really enjoyed the start of the book that was more detailed for setting the tone and direction of the being a Scrum Master and her view of the progression. The illustrations are beautifully done. They are simple and clearly represent the key points of the subject area. I could not get enough of the illustrations. I especially enjoyed the material on self-organization and building teams being mindful of the possible dysfunctions.
Many areas such as working within the system – level 3, the practical use of Cynefin, and going for change, scaling scrum (one page) deserved called out for more attention. For example, while the Cynefin concept was highlighted, there was no discussion of “unknown unknowns” and emergence and how that plays in out in product development and how to talk about it so the organization understands what is happening. Or how do you deal with a system that does not want to engage you in real discussion as agent of change? I know she has a wealth of experience that I would have liked to learn from. If I saw the revision with this type of detail, it would jump to front of my reading queue!

Pros: it’s short and a nice refresher, and has some nice introduction to further concepts (eg change management).
Cons: maybe this book wasn’t for me as a seasoned scrum master, but I just felt I didn’t gain enough out of it for it to be valuable.
Livre plus que moyen. Il ne faut définitivement pas son prix.
Les conseils/techniques/sentences sont des poncifs qu'on peut retrouver un peu partout sur les blogs plus ou moins spécialisés.
Ce bouquin ressemble plus une publicité payée au prix fort. L'auteur ne cesse de mettre en avant ses certifications et d'expliquer qu'elle est disponible pour des formations/workshop.
Bref, des généralités jamais vraiment poussées. Et si vous en voulez plus, payez vous une formation avec l'auteur. Voici l'esprit du livre. Tout ce que l'on déteste chez scrum: le côté mercantile des pseudo-guru. Pour l'esprit du manifeste Agile, on repassera.
Pour ceux qui recherche un vrai bouquin pour passer un cap, je vous conseille plutôt "Scrum Mastery" de Geoff Watts, c'est un autre monde.
