From an excellent author.

I dreamed of possessing the PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner certification and I decided to make this audio book my formal reviewer. I like the audio book form because of its versatility. I get to listen to it even when I am on the road. It has impressed me much that I decided to consult on this book alone.
