It has clear, practical advice. In particular, the clarification of the dangers of component teams is particularly valuable as well as communication patterns between teams.
As an Agile coach, I have personally applied some of the patterns with success and sadly have witnessed many of the anti-patterns play out.
This is a very good book on agile development, unfortunately, inappropriately named.
1) Readers who bought this book, probably are interested in the additional stuff on multisite and offshore, and not the everything about Agile Development. Thus, this book can be, should be a lot thinner.
2) The book contains lots of good examples. Unfortunately, I have to jump around the book to read them. Thus, the organization of the content can be improved.
