Mostly good, but a little old,
This review is from: Managing Agile Projects (Paperback)
This book, which I bought as a required text for a third-year undergrad course in project management, is a compilation of writings by several different authors, all of whom have real-world experience with agile projects. It covers the basic principles, the techniques, and how to deal with problematic situations such as fixed-price contracts or demands for documentation.
However, these articles are mostly from 2001-2002 and some are from the late 90s; at that time, apparently, it wasn't known how to handle an agile project much larger than 1 million lines of code. It also doesn't cover reporting tools (e.g. burndown charts, parking-lot charts) in detail, nor does it cover the hybrid traditional/agile methodologies that Kevin tells me are recommended when most of the programmers on a project are entry-level or interns (agile works best with mostly senior veteran programmers).
