Emphasizing practice over theory, this book explores every aspect of using Scrum, focusing on driving projects for maximum return on investment.

"Useful introduction to Scrum, if little repetitive" - by Radski on 31-JAN-2013

The case studies are useful, but even in the (only) 150 pages you have the feeling author just repeats himself - a lot.

If you've read any other book on Scrum, you can probably safely skip this.

I found this book well written and useful.  This book makes Scrum basics easy to understand.  The included case studies are interesting and how various companies use Scrum to improve their projects.  I would recommend this book to anyone learing about Scrum or trying to improve their understanding.
