Read from December 28, 2011 to January 22, 2012

I've been leading an agile software team for a number of years, so roughly half of this book was review rather than new information. It would make a great introduction to the practices of agile to someone who was new to the concepts, however.

The first half of the book does contain some great ideas around the initiation of projects, and some useful tools for getting everyone on the same page(which has been an issue on a number of projects I've lead). There is also some great explanation of what the day to day activity of an agile project looks like from the standpoint of the project manager in charge. These concepts are seldom touched on in other agile books, and were worth the price of this book by themselves.
