Very enjoyable and practical book on agile concepts
on September 12, 2016
This is an excellent book for those who are unfamiliar with agile concepts. The author provides very practical advice on general best practices. This book is focused on "agile" (lowercase "a") rather than "Agile" (uppercase "A"), i.e., instead of prescribing a particular methodology, the author describes different possible approaches, but advocates doing whatever appears to make the most sense from an agile perspective given the particulars of a team's work.
The author's style of writing is more enjoyable than other books on agile because he presents the material from several angles, provides nice visuals, and writes in a lighthearted manner. The Audible version is great. I liked it so much that I purchased the book. I've re-read it several times.
I'm not a software developer, but I am able to apply the concepts from the first 3/4 of the book to most of my project-related work.
