Books to get started with Agile / Scrum

Just heard about agile software development or Scrum and want to know more about it? Here are 3 books which will get you started and maybe tempt you to take the blue pill:

1. Agile and Iterative Development: A Manager’s Guide: This one gives you a high level overview of everything agile, including Scrum. Good to get a first basic understanding of agile principles and methodologies / practices around town.

2. Agile Project Management with Scrum: This is the reference book on Scrum written by Ken Schwaber. A must read for anyone who has already a pretty good idea of agile principles and is considering Scrum.

3. For the German speaking audience, Boris Gloger’s book “Scrum: Produkte schnell und zuverlässig entwickeln” provides excellent materials. For the record: I was lucky to have Boris as my trainer for my CSM training.

What would you recommend for someone willing to know more about agile software development?
