To really understand an idea, it's often useful to also understand who is behind it and what their personal history is. Yves is doing the Agile community a great service by placing the people who are advancing Agile ideas in the spotlight. "Who is agile" captures some of the feel of attending a good Agile conference, minus the sessions (but you can get plenty of those by looking at the contributors' blogs, slideshares, etc.). You meet people who have something in common with you - at least a top ...more

Yves Hanoulle has edited a book, called Who Is agile? Full disclosure: I am in the book.

I love this book. Not because I am in it, but because of all the back-stories, the pictures, and the links. And, oh my goodness, the links.

I did not expect to love this book. I expected to like the book. I expected to learn something. I expected to entertain myself for an hour or two. After all, how interesting could it be? I'd been reading the Who Is... series on Yves' blog. Yes, I'd missed a couple of peopl

The best part of this book is that it's still in progress. However Yves decided to stop on 89 per Volume I, there will be the 2-nd volume and I hope the 3d and so on. It's a great job to connect people that way.
This is a great book full of interesting personal stories of people who have stumbled across Agile software development and are true practitioners of this approach.
