Too dependent on companion PDF

What disappointed you about Agile Project Management for Dummies?

There is way too much reference to figures that are in the print edition, but are only included in the companion PDF of the audiobook. I don't mind occasional references, but there are a lot of these figures that are basic lists or cards that could just be read aloud. It gets the point that you lose a lot of context.

What was most disappointing about Mark C. Layton’s story?

I think the book is fine, but the presentation is pretty useless.

UGHH!

This just was not for me. I thought it would help me with project management but it just seemed like white noise. It was robotic and dry.

Informative, but incredibly dry and boring

"Here are the attributes of x:
One: blablabla
Two: blablabla
.
.
.
Fourteen d: blablabla
Fourteen e: blablabla.

For more information, refer to figure 2859 C in the PDF. For more about X, refer back to chapter 13."

Don't do this to yourself.

A great introduction to Agile methodologies!

I am a fan of the Dummies series in general but this is by far my favorite. It is a great introduction to Agile, clear and concise with tons of additional information sources and online content.

Logical and Well Delivered

I have been in project management for a long time and have heard a lot about Agile however needed a resource which would give me a thorough but understandable way to learn Agile. This audiobook did exactly what I was looking for and I am pretty sure that I will listen to it again. I may even end up buying the text based version as I think it would be a good reference document whilst taking on my first Agile-Run project. Recommended to others who are in my situation.
