3.0 out of 5 stars OK .. but too much 'noise', 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Agile Project Management For Dummies (Paperback)
I'm a developer and I'm used to reading clear reference books ..

I don't know if it's common to all the 'Dummies' books but this is NOT a great read

Far too much repetition, in fact the book is probably less than a sixth the size it looks if you remove the repetition
Maybe that's how some people learn ..
But for me it's easier to read a concise book many times rather than one that repeats over and over (oh .. and over ) again

Maybe it's the repetition that makes it such a dull monotone read as well ..
not enough 'high points' of interest .. just a general 'noise' of agile buzz words

It's not all bad though ..I'm NOT a fan of the style .. but it DOES have good info buried in there ..

(but I think there's probably better references out there)
