Extreme Programming Explained: Embrace Change by Kent Beck
6 of 7 people found the following review helpful
Not only describes XP very well, but also explains why it works. It is full of practical and useful insights (even more so than 'The Mythical Man Month') - it's obviously the result of real experience rather than being theoretical. It deserves to become a sw development classic.
It's easy to read - much more so than the XP wiki sites - which by their nature are rather 'bitty'. Although the wiki sites contain more detailed discussions about the practices, the book explains why the practices work together.
