Questionable reviews and mediocre content - Beware

The content is mediocre. It is as though a person paid a researcher to compile a compendium on the topic and then paid a narrator to read it without affect or intonation.

The performance was not checked for quality. the narrator snorts and snuffles quite audibly for five seconds at only 10 minutes in (8:23 in chapter 3 to be precise). A cursory QA/QC check and simple editing would have fixed this.

If you travel frequently and need to have someone read a series of whitepapers and wiki entries on Scrum, this is an OK stand-in for that use case.

Now... on to the reviews. 25 5-star ratings in 48 hours following the release and then none for two weeks. In isolation, there is nothing remarkable about these reviews, until you compare them with other works here on Audible...

Contrast this with a NYT AND Amazon bestseller "The Point of It All" by Charles Krauthammer, which was released Dec 04, 2018. At the time of this review, the Krauthammer book had 68 reviews dispersed over 20+ days. This book on Scrum has 25 reviews in 48 hours. I should have done my due diligence and research into this audiobook on Scrum, as the author's other Audible volumes appear to have a similar pattern of review distribution and timing. Sad.

Awesome Audio Book

This is a great little book about Scrum basics and agile project management. If you aren't familiar, Scrum is basically a framework for completing complex projects. This books teaches you where what scrum and agile project management is all about and how to use it.

A Brief Explanation

This book, Scrum basics, really delves into the details on HOW to activate planning successfully, but not something for me.

Nice Audiobook

Scrum basics discusses the history and principles of Agile project management in a simplified enough way for even those with no experience in the field to understand. It breaks down the differences in traditional offices compared to Agile ones and takes time to explain the terminology used in both the field as well as Scrum practice.

I loved It

The books go into the early years of development of programming being unsuccessful due to over emphasis on pre-planning and not working with customers to ensure their needs were being met throughout the development process.

Comprehensive One


A very good introduction to Scrum and Agile development. It is short, concise and well written. It provides the history and the basic of Scrum and the main agile development methods. It is not a detailed or a how to book but lays out the basics well in an easy to understand format. .

Fairly Good

Scrum focuses on a self-organizing, multi-functional team that can solve the necessary tasks with minimal coordination. This is especially attractive for small companies and startups, as it eliminates the need for hiring or training specialized personnel managers. This is the perfect guide on SCRUM subject.
