Hi everyone, i've just read "Applying UML and Patterns" by Craig Larman and i was wondering a book that cover all the agile and iterative development topics since the book is an introduction (the author said so). On my searches i found "Agile Software Development, Principles, Patterns, and Practices".
Is it a good book? Is there any better solution?
p.s.: I'm a developer, not manager.

Thanks in advance.

Could you describe a bit about what kind of information are you looking for in such a book?

Robert Martin's book is great - a must-read for a developer, in my opinion. On the other hand, it fully concentrates on the source code - how to manage dependencies in the design and such things. There are other books for the other aspects of software development.

I�m looking for more agile process, the book only covers the initial part of it (conception and elaboration phases in UP). I don�t want a specific methodology such xp or rup.

Have a look over the books that were suggested in the Agile Books topic.

So you are looking for something more like a cookbook on how to to continue than a philosophical book? Are you a software developer? A manager? Are you working in a team?
