"Full of engaging stories and real-world examples. The project management method known as Scrum may be the most widely deployed productivity tool among high-tech companies.

(Eric Ries, New York Times bestselling author of The Lean Startup)
"Required reading." (The Times (Book of the Week))
"Engaging, persuasive and extremely practical...Scrum provides a simple framework for solving what seem like intractable and complicated work problems. It’s hard to make forward progress when you can’t see your impediments clearly. Sutherland offers a lens to remedy that. Amazingly, this book will not only make your life at work and home easier, but also, better and happier." (Shawn Achor, New York Times bestselling author of Before Happiness and The Happiness Advantage)
"This book contains immense practical value that could be transformative for your company. If you have a project that requires people to accomplish, your first act should be to read and be guided by Scrum." (Stephen Lundin, New York Times bestselling author of Fish: A Remarkable Way to Boost Morale and Improve Performance)
"Scrum is mandatory reading for any leader, whether they’re leading troops on the battlefield or in the marketplace. The challenges of today’s world don’t permit the luxury of slow, inefficient work. Success requires tremendous speed, enormous productivity, and an unwavering commitment to achieving results. In other words success requires Scrum." (General Barry McCaffrey)

Only one thing that wore me down a little. Jeff Sutherland's ego was a bit of a distraction. It felt a bit like - 'I couldn't believe that when I invented agile, I would be saving the world.'
You need to be clear about where this book comes from, and it’s reason for being written. Jeff Sutherland was one of The authors of the Agile Manifesto. This book talks about his experiences, and what he has learnt from them. He then goes on to explain how Scrum and Agile can change things for the better. This book won’t teach you how to to start Scrum or Agile practices directly, but if you need some inspiration and motivation to do so, then it will help.
The book is an easy read, and I have found myself marking pages every few minutes with nuggets of ideas and inspiration that I will use to drive change where I work.
Visionary without getting too preachy — I ‘d say this is an essential management read. I’d imagine whether you are new to Scrum/Agile or a past master it is a very useful book.
