It was published in November 2013 by Van Haren Publishing. The pocket format used by my publisher coincides with the sub-title of the book “A Smart Travel Companion” and my views of Scrum as a journey, not a destination. Scrum is a journey toward increased agility, and my book is designed as a small guide that any traveler can easily take along.
Here’s what some of my best friends in the world of Scrum said about “Scrum – A Pocket Guide”:
Best description of Scrum currently available.
says Ken Schwaber, Scrum co-creator.
The book on Scrum I wished I had written.
says David Starr, also known as ‘Elegant Coder‘.
My publisher now informs me that the third impression is about to be produced (June 2014). It is still the first edition as the content is stable. The second impression dates from February 2014. I am humbled by this success and grateful for the appreciation.
