I bought this book with the hope of knowing some important though introductory details about Scrum but was kind of disappointed. The book is aptly titled and if you already work in a scrum environment, I suggest getting the longer version of this book because the info presented in this book will already be well known to you.

A book written in a truly Agile style...small distinct pieces which are easily digestible.
A great resource to introduce the Agile concept to your dev team.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's Probably OK Nov. 14 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's probably OK as far as results go in working with a group of people but I'm just an individual person after individual results so this Scrum thing really doesn't apply to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well distilled and nicely told Aug. 7 2012
By Lukasz Langa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the more drastic transitions at my current job was formally adapting Scrum in place of an informal, best-effort approach we used before. This book helped me grasp what Scrum is really about in less than an hour. There is no filler here, no anecdotes nor reiteration. Pure content, well distilled. Just what I needed. We have been trained more thoroughly since but it was this book which got me going.

I wish more introductory books were like this one: skipping the waffle, delivering just the gist of the subject.

Update: when I originally wrote the review, the book had display problems on Kindle Touch. This issue has been fixed since. The font size is very small but legible. One could argue this is deliberate for an introductory reference material, this way it's very easy to leaf through the book.

By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
1. The book offers a quick overview of the Scrum/Agile Process which I found very helpful and easy to read.
2. It work fine on the Kindle Fire so i guess the complaints were for the original kindle.
3. Buy this for .99 and become a bit smarter!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool for explaining Agile and Scrum to general population Sept. 19 2013
By Be4Real - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Our primarily waterfall-based organization is looking to introduce and implement Scrum Agile to cross-functional teams. Our CIO was looking for a "primer" to at least get everyone using the same terms and understanding the basic concepts. Needless to say - the search is over! All the important stuff is covered and in a way that non-IT team members can understand.
