About the Author
Over his past two decades of experience, Jeff Patton has learned there’s no “one right way” to design and build software, but there’s lots of wrong ways.
Jeff makes use of over 15 years experience with a wide variety of products from on-line aircraft parts ordering to electronic medical records to help organizations improve the way they work. Where many development processes focus on delivery speed and efficiency, Jeff balances those concerns with the need for building products that deliver exceptional value and marketplace success.
Jeff has focused on Agile approaches since working on an early Extreme Programming team in 2000. In particular he specializes in integrating effective user experience design and product management practice with strong engineering practice.Jeff currently works as an independent consultant, agile process coach, product design process coach, and instructor. Current articles, essays, and presentations on variety of topics in Agile product development can be found at www.AgileProductDesign.com and in Alistair Cockburn’s Crystal Clear. Jeff is founder and list moderator of the agile-usability Yahoo discussion group, a columnist with StickyMinds.com and IEEE Software, a Certified Scrum Trainer, and winner of the Agile Alliance’s 2007 Gordon Pask Award for contributions to Agile Development.

Most obviously, it's an excellent book on User Story Mapping. For me it's one of the core practices I use during agile & lean product delivery. It's useful during discovery & development — and Jeff covers both those cases with several real world examples to help drive the value of the practice home.
It's also an excellent book on user stories. I've seen far too many people create bad user stories by misunderstanding their intent, slavishly using templates, or misunderstanding how the team can use them as a tool to explore risk and scope. The book covers all these issues and more — giving a fantastic overview on how to work productively with stories.
Finally it's a book on product management in an agile world. The conversations about user stories and user story mapping all take place in the wider context of how to do effective product discovery and development in an agile and lean environment. How they can be used to discover opportunities, build shared understanding, validate learning, and build better products and services.
And he manages to do all of this in a clear, practical and jargon free way. If you've not figured it out already — I *really* like this book. It’s something that anybody involved in agile product development will get value from. Thoroughly recommended. Go buy it for your team now.
Some of this is "just" realising things I already knew, but giving them a better context. But some is a genuine epiphany. I'm still taking it all in.
On top of the great content, Jeff's writing style and humour make this incredibly easy to read (unlike some other books on similar topics), you'll fly through it.
The examples really helped me to relate to situations I was facing at the time and gave me an appreciation of how to keep things simple, communicate and record decisions and discussions
I've started doing story mapping workshops with clients and they respond brilliantly to it. Can't recommend this highly enough!
