    + Informative + free (work gave it to me) + A good way of working, which suits me at least partially - too much repetition, not enough juicy/funny examples - not fun to read - no dragons

    Does provide background/context and quotes from the Agile 'Manifesto', but in a way that makes the methodology seem ridiculous to me. Further it aims to take the methodology out of its intended context (software development, starting after securing an established, tested design.)

Further it aims to take the methodology out of its intended context (software development, starting after securing an established, tested design.) This effort highlights for me the absurdity of the methodology _as written_. Agile allows for no project manager as "the team members pick up those tasks", but the 'Product Owner' takes on the role of deciding what is built, when, in what order. Nice in theory, but it does not work well in most companies, and these authors advocate taking this methodology beyond its intended use. A fundamental tenet of Agile is that changes are 'welcome' at any time in the development. Imagine applying this to construction, or baking ? It's equally absurd in software - some change is fine at specific points, but is it reasonable to change the footprint of a building after the foundation is dug, or change the ingredients of a cake after it's been mixed? The Agile answer to changes is to 'involve' the 'Product Owner' at every step of the process. This is akin to having to meet with the construction crew daily to listen to their plans, tell them if the area they are working on is a priority from the client's view, talk to the baker about which products will be prepared, mixed, baked, at what point, etc. (A 'good' IT company has 'only' a 30% turnover rate, even with Agile.) In fact, chunking work into short modules is ideal, but not always efficient for the tasks to be accomplished. Further, this approach is akin to splitting up the writing of a textbook by sections within chapters. Extra work is incurred in tying the sections together, ensuring that the terms are provided and defined, only once, at the appropriate points, etc. It can work, but it takes active coordination. Which Scrum accomplishes via _daily_ stand-up meetings! This book illustrates well why this methodology is highly 'tailored' from the 'ideal' when it is implemented at various companies. For me it did not add value. Statements such as, "The scrum master's most important trait is clout." are more warnings than help. One cannot learn or practice 'clout' - it may come from a combination of authority, confidence, respect, and hiring/firing power, but if that's the requirement for success, isn't this methodology already a failure? I would recommend leaving this behind, and reading instead (free online) "The Scrum Guide" https://www.scrumguides.org/scrum-gui... by Schwaber and Sutherland, two of the original authors of the Agile Manifesto (also free online: https://agilemanifesto.org/.)

    Who would have thought that you can use Scrum even for finding a life partner? X) Very easy language and great examples to understand the framework and artifacts

    A good introduction to the concepts and history of Scrum. The book goes off the rails though, when the author attempts to apply Scrum to personal life, such as dating.
