About the Book
So much has been written about Agile that is sometimes seems there is little new to say. The essays in this mini-book attempt to get under the skin of Agile and look at how it works in real life, they attempt to help those new to Agile make it work.
This mini-book is intended to supplement courses offered by Software Strategy Ltd, hence the title "Agile Reader." The essays have been selected to support the course material and provide additional information.
