AGILE!

This book won't show you how to do anything. Too many books (and experts and gurus and infomercials) do that already. You also have probably checked them out and found -- for one reason or another -- these processes, programs and ""step by step ladders to guaranteed success"" don't work for you.

This is the first book I've read that falls into the 'self-help' category that 1) I actually ENJOYED reading 2) I finished the book feeling excited to plan out and begin working on my goal, and 3) I finished in one cozy, wrapped-in-my-favorite-blanket, steaming-cup-of-coffee-at-my-side sitting.

Refreshing style, OK content

I enjoyed Sasha's slightly irreverent prose style and would definitely read more from her for voice and tone alone. The books's insight that agile principles can be applied to accomplish personal goals is novel and has merit. However, I doubt that many will find this quick read all that mind blowing or life changing.
