I literally had no idea about Kanban other than it was a looser Agile (than something like Scrum). I enjoyed reading this book and I learnt a lot in a very short period of time. I am now comfortable with what Kanban is and how it works and I can really see the appeal. I may even have to revise my thinking that to be Agile you have to have iterations.
About half the book is dedicated to an overview of Kanban with a list of other books you should read, including Kanban by David J. Anderson which is next on my reading list, and the final half to a description of the Kanban process that Paul Klipp uses. This really helps give some context to Kanban.
This is a good overview of Kanban, with practical examples of how the author uses Kanban in a variety of ways. It will certainly be enough to help you decide whether or how you want to study Kanban further, and it in some circumstances, it may be all you need to make use of the technique and adopt it into operational management.
