Title           : Scrum Shortcuts without Cutting Corners: Agile Tactics, Tools, & Tips (Addison-Wesley Signature Series (Cohn))
Author/s    : Ilan Goldstein
Publisher   : Addison-Wesley Professional
Category   : Project Management, Process and Best Practices
Review by : Jeanne Boyarsky
Rating        : 9 horseshoes

"Scrum Shortcuts without cutting corners" was an enjoyable read. It consists of 30 tips that can be read in any order. As I read, I had a mix of reactions:
Of course, doesn't everyone do that
I wish we did that
Good idea

I like the dose of reality - for example recognizing fractional team members exist. There was colorful language - "pretty waterfall along the way", "Scrummer-fall" and "attention deficit disordered puppies" (which probably is politically incorrect but a really funny phrase).

I also liked the warnings. The definition for good vs evil metrics is quite useful.

Most importantly, I have a bunch of items to suggest at future retrospectives. Definitely worth the read!
