For those of you that have felt that Scrum was just a touch childish, this is definitely a perfect read. This books describes a "second generation" of Agile development processes, using Scrum as a foundation for evolution.

This book assumes detailed knowledge of Scrum, and at least a passing knowledge of Lean principles (don't expect to find a definition of "Kanban" in here); however, this just lets you get on with the important bit: why this all works (and, most interestingly, how Scrum grasps at but doesn't really optimally attain many of these ideas)! The read is quite quick, although there are definitely areas that are worth a second or third read.

Best methodolgy introduced: "Developer's Natural Authority: if you refuse to take responsibility for sequencing the work, then I will."
