The thing I like about the book the most, is it makes you step back and think about your team, your organization and yourself in your Agile environment. I always asked myself when reading this book was "If my team/organization was an improv show, what would it really look like?"
The book is an easy read, which is broken down to incremental build as you flow through the book.
Paul is an experienced agilist, who in the book relates to real life struggles he has had with Agile teams and we all have in our agile related roles
There are many different techniques you can take away and work with your teams. The book is something you wont read once, you will use it as a reference to tackle all the different issues we have.
