mixed feelings, bad choice for first "agile" book

If you are new to agile methods this book may be confusing. Being agile is a mindset and the book treats it as if you were to do Agile, which is incorrect in its core principles. Gives nice advice to people who try to move from waterfallish project management to more agile approach like XP, SCRUM or Kanban. Worth 1 credit. But if you need an introduction it'd be a bad choice.
