hard to keep up with and remember

Con: Zero narrative to latch on to. They essentially throw lots of information at you without context, and sometimes leave terms undefined until well after they should have been.
Pro: Short.

This is not a tool for actually learning SCRUM. It's a tool for giving you a macro view of what SCRUM is and how it works, as quickly as possible. I recommend listening to it at 90% speed.

Surprising book

I have an entire shelf of Lean, Agile, and Scrum books, but this one stands out as the best, most complete reference guide. If it's Scrum and it's not in this book then you don't need to know about it.

really great book

I read it cover to cover as a refresher and expect to use it as a reference in my work. A little grammatical editing will polish it up.

Thanks to the author.

Before listening, my background was that I sort of knew what Scrum was about because of casually talking with people but after listening this book,I feel that I now have a solid understanding of the Scrum framework.

Everyone should buy this book!

This book explained one trap was that the tool becomes the end-all and the Scrum Master becomes the Communication go-between. The advice and tips have helped me a lot in my journey for the certification and also changing my mind towards usage of Scrum.

a must listen!!

This book explains the drive to getting anything "done" using Scrum practices should be viewed at a system level.This is less about developing software though and more about how to approach your work. highly recommended.

Completely up to date

As I proceeded through the book I found even more useful gems to incorporate into our work flow. I have been following Scrum for years but had no idea that it is so powerful.

provides inspiration towards achieving that goal.

This book had some great specific ideas of improving my ways as a scrum master. Scrum Mastery clearly shows how to overcome common challenges, and to develop and grow as a Scrum Master.
