When Kevin asked me if I'd like to review "Managing Agile Projects", I was initially suspicious of how the title would hold up against other titles in this very popular genre. After reading it, I have to say it does so very well.

"Managing Agile Projects" is not a book about a methodology. Instead, it looks at agile project management as a whole and offers insights to various aspects of it through the words of a number of well-known authors (all of whom have donated any author royalties from this book to charity!). While the book has been stitched together from a huge cast of authors, the whole really is a well balanced whole although some chapters do stick out from the rest, being rather academic for my taste.

The book really is a one-stop shop for describing agile software development to a project manager. It doesn't just run through the usual stuff found in pretty much any book on agile software development but also discusses hot potatoes like fixed-price contracts and documentation. I've read a whole bunch of books on agile software development and I still found plenty of material in this book that made my eyes gleam of new insight.

I'm rating this one at no less than 9 horseshoes!
