Really impressed

The book includes several illustrations to help point out the differences for each concept. For me the coup de grace was the several case studies presented that further illustrated Agile project management and the results it can produce in a real world setting.

A must listen!

This was a good audio book with some good information. The narrator was easy to listen to and the information flowed smoothly. I will keep this one as a good reference item. Enjoyed how you could jump from chapter to chapter, or go back to the start of a particular chapter to re-listen to it.
