Team Loop Books

XP Explained by Kent Beck (both 1st and 2nd edition)

Recommended by: Matteo, Federico, Vieri

This is the book that started it all for me (Matteo). It explains the reasoning behind XP; why it can work, why it's good, what are the values behind it.

The Art of Agile Development, by James Shore and ...

Recommended by: Matteo, Federico, Vieri

A modern compendium of XP. Very well written and reasoned. I (Matteo) like the tone of their voice. (Federico) it's like a reference book, very practice-focused, and with a good table of comparison of the jargon terms between XP and Scrum, so you don't feell lost anymore. It is a bit big for a newbie, so don't be scared!

Software Configuration Management Patterns: Effective Teamwork, Practical Integration

Recommended by: Vieri

Shows how proven SCM practices can foster a healthy team-oriented culture that produces better software. The patterns are presented with an emphasis on practicality and agility.

Peopleware: Productive Projects and Teams

Recommended by: Vieri

A precursor of agility. Demarco and Lister demonstrate that the major issues of software development are human, not technical. Their answers aren't easy, just incredibly successful.

Crystal Clear: A Human-Powered Methodology for Small Team

Recommended by: Vieri

Lucid and practical introduction to running a successful agile project in your organization. Less extreme approach compared to XP, the emphasis is on adaptation.

The SCRUM book by Beedle and Schwaber

Recommended by: Federico, Vieri

Fast and easy readable introduction to SCRUM. It is a good reading both for developers, coaches, managers and even customers, as there aren't too many low-level details (i.e. about the internal agile loop).
