I've purchased many "...for Dummies" books in the past but this is the first one I've actually read cover-to-cover. If you are familiar with the "...for Dummies" series, you know what you're going to get: a nuts and bolts, start with the basics, type of book. Having knowledge of and experience in the traditional waterfall project methodology for software development and delivery, I wanted to learn more about Agile Project Methodology but I wanted to make sure I started with a solid foundation.

Ugh, this book was hard to get through. I admit that I was fully aware of many of the Agile concepts prior to cracking open this book. It was given to me at a project management event and opened it when I wanted to brush up on some terminology for an interview.

The criminal sin of this book was how repetitive it was. He probably could have cut 100 pages if he said the information just once. And, while I know that this book was to teach about Agile, I felt like he was too much of a cheerleader. Th...more

We've just implemented Agile Scrum on a project at work, and even within the first sprint, it has been terrific. I thought I'd augment my knowledge with this book and felt it was very good. My only real complaint is that by the end of the book, it felt like it was saying the same things over and over again. The "road map to success" diagram was used at least 3 or 4 different times in the book...I got it after the first time. So it could have been a little more concise by cutting out the repetiti...more
It was repetitive and I did not read it cover to cover. It was available from a digital library so it was a convenient way to learn about agile. It had a few good tips I'm not sure I would have learned from a web search, so it was useful.

Note: I read the IBM edition, not this edition. IBM edition is shorter and older!

Not for true dummies, needs some experience in agile, but gives very good review of the topic.
Well structured
I found many topics new to me
Short but enough as a review
Shamelessly, contains too much ads for IBM products, but it is IBM-edition! But on the other side neglects mentioning other strong tools like TFS (but this understandable also, it's a Microsoft product :)

Too many words for such an amount of information. This book is suffering of verbosity and countless repetitions. Ask yourself If you are dummy, and if your answer is 'Yes' - go ahead, otherwise don't buy this book.
Good book and required literature for the project manager of today.
