Too dependent on companion PDF

What disappointed you about Agile Project Management for Dummies?

There is way too much reference to figures that are in the print edition, but are only included in the companion PDF of the audiobook. I don't mind occasional references, but there are a lot of these figures that are basic lists or cards that could just be read aloud. It gets the point that you lose a lot of context.

What was most disappointing about Mark C. Layton’s story?

I think the book is fine, but the presentation is pretty useless.

Logical and Well Delivered

I have been in project management for a long time and have heard a lot about Agile however needed a resource which would give me a thorough but understandable way to learn Agile. This audiobook did exactly what I was looking for and I am pretty sure that I will listen to it again. I may even end up buying the text based version as I think it would be a good reference document whilst taking on my first Agile-Run project. Recommended to others who are in my situation.
