No Chapter Titles

The introduction is too long and there are no chapter titles. It would have been great to be able to jump to a section.

Good overview, missing contrast with waterfall

Reader doesn't do the letter L, but very skilled at masking, still a bit distracting.
There are summaries of the different methods, not a lot of examples, and I wish there could have been a comparison to the default way of doing projects, waterfall.

Good read for beginners

Practical and easy to-do activities that will help you to get successful results off your projects. I’m currently learning and practicing along the way of dealing with the stresses and challenges with activities needed to finish a project. Good read and something you can share with the team to reach your goals.

Interesting overview and guide.

The title suggests a guide. And it is more of a historical overview with some quite shallow examples. I expected a lot more.

A great starting-point for anyone,

I like how it gives a history and layout of the basics in the beginning of the book. It was a good basis of how to preform agile in the work place and has provided a building block for me at work. It is easy for a beginner to understand and gives a clear understanding of the key ideas and principles of Agile. If you like IT, use this in the workplace, or would like some fresh ideas in running IT at work, I would highly suggest this book for reading.

Good if you're not familiar with Agile at all.

I was given this item for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion, which is given. I am no way have been influenced by the seller. Pretty basic; good if you're not familiar with Agile at all.

This book is by far so much better.

I did receive this product in exchange for my genuine, unbiased review.
This book is by far so much better, by a long shot! The details are clear, and straight forward to understand. The author an amazing job of explaining things thoroughly and little by little expanding on the principles of Project management. We have been able to better focus our time on what is actually being taught; this book has done wonders for us in understanding the material for class.

Very sound principles

I like how the first principle is that customer satisfaction is the highest priority. Of course in order for a business to have longevity, it requires that the company have customers, and more importantly, when the customers are loyal and keep coming back. It brings more certainty for the company to have consistent projected profitability. I feel that the principles are very sound and, if followed, lay down a very strong foundation.
