"Clear, well-written, and extremely useful. This book stays very focused on what matters in building a successful agile practice without being preachy or vague...I’ve read plenty of books on Agile. This one’s definitely in the top three."
--Jim Holmes, FrazzledDad

"This book is very well written. Rasmusson uses an entertaining writing style that makes it pleasant to read from beginning to end. What I like the most is the author experience. The way he presents the topics dealing with role assignation (chapter 2) and reality in agile planning (chapter 8) is simply remarkable."
--Alexandre Bergel, Computing Reviews
