5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and entertainingly written, very accessible
Clear and informative writing style, with enough examples to keep the book engaging throughout. A very easy-to-read book that covers all the key concepts you need to start using scrum and agile project management. It's aimed primarily at software development teams but written at a high enough level that it's accessible to real people too :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much talk and not much investigation of why SCRUM works
Although the book formally covers SCRUM I didn't like the writing style. Also the typesetting was too large to include much text. Also some investigations as to why SCRUM works as compared to other methods could have been included.

We'll paced book light on jargon and practical too!

More diagrams and templates would be useful and some examples of real life use

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good introduction, 13 May 2013

This review is from: The Elements of Scrum (Paperback)
I got the demo introduction first for my Kindle and after blasting through that I quickly bought this, the full version. It's everything that the demo is but in detail and with examples. For me it was a great start to introduce full scrum in my work place. It's not an all around compendium, but when you need to get the full recipe to start playing with scrum, this gives you the full package.

I'd like to thank the authors ;) ... THANKS !!! :)
