What the Critics Say

"This book is very well written. Rasmusson uses an entertaining writing style that makes it pleasant to read from beginning to end. What I like the most is the author experience. The way he presents the topics dealing with role assignation (chapter 2) and reality in agile planning (chapter 8) is simply remarkable." (Computing Reviews)

Great Primer!

An outstanding audio adaptation of the whirlwind tour of agile software development. A great companion for someone with a long commute between the serenity of home and the chaos of a development shop struggling to find its place with an agile process.

Short intro to everything Agile

The book summarizes and jetskis through all the agile/scrum work methodology and cycles. However, it should be listened at 1.5x speed, otherwise it feels like Don is sedated.
