Review quote

""This book is very well written. Rasmusson uses an entertaining writing style that makes it pleasant to read from beginning to end. What I like the most is the author experience. The way he presents the topics dealing with role assignation (chapter 2) and reality in agile planning (chapter 8) is simply remarkable.""--Computing Reviews""The Agile Samurai is the book I wish I'd read before I started my last agile project. The chapters on agile project inception alone are worth the price of admission."" --Joshua Kerievsky, Founder and CEO, Industrial Logic, Inc. ""The Agile Samurai is exactly the book you and your team need to understand and deliver using the agile method. It makes the concepts tactile for everyone from the highest level of leadership to the people pushing forward on the front lines."""" --Jessica Watson, Business Analyst, Shaw Communications
