Jeff's book delivers a narrative of a CTO who just "lied" to his biggest customer and the fear that sets in. Follows him on his discovery of Scrum, installation into his company and the insights he gets as Scrum takes hold. This is an excellent book for beginners and for those who are in similar situations looking for something that may work. We can relate to the CTO because most SW development managers and project managers have been there. Jeff not only describes the mechanics of Scrum but also the philosophy behind it. This is a good illustration of how an organization can turn a development process that is unpredictable, error-prone, and sometimes oppressive into one of empowerment, transparency, and responsive to customer needs.
I recommend it highly.
