My favorite Audiobook

My favorite part in all of this AUDIObook was listening and understanding how scrum is used and works in a real setting and not just as an idea in a book.

like reading a PowerPoint slide deck

it felt like listening to somebody reading a poorly organized PowerPoint slide deck. It says the word Agile every twenty seconds which get tiresome pretty fast.
