    "Great read about Agile Growing Pains" This book chronicles some of the growing pains that Matt's company experienced in the first year of its jump to Agile. The book is an easy read. Agile Man identified 30 ish "Issues" (He has Issues instead of Chapters since he is a comic book enthusiast) that he wanted to talk about, and examines each issue with some depth. The summaries at the end of each Issue were great, as several weeks or months worth of success and failure are captured nicely. Agile Man explains the issues, and points fingers, but he also makes great effort to explain why the problem happened and what the solution was/could be. He's also ready to admit to much of the blame for several of the issues, nice to see. The comics could have done with a bit more artistry, but then Agile Man didn't realize that Agile Boy is actually an excellent artist, so what are you going to do? I don't think Bat Man ever thought he could learn anything from Robin either. I... More > think that this book would be a great read for anyone who is involved in a transition to Agile. While the book won't answer all of the questions, it gives a good road map to how Agile got rolled out and morphed at Matt's company. It might be beneficial to see that (a) it was not a smooth transition and mistakes were made and (b) there are still mistakes, so Agile is definately something that requires planning, compromise, and a willingness to grow.< Less
