Scrum for the Rest of Us (Non-Software)

I had the pleasure to work with The Braintrust Group and review their book to provide feedback and editorial comments. It has now been published up on Amazon. I defiantly would recommend this book for anyone new or experienced with Scrum. It has a lot of interesting tips and real world problems/solutions as well as pitfalls to look out for. I have to promote it since my names in the book :) The great thing about the book is that the word "software" isn't used once. Now that it's been shown that Scrum can be used outside of software projects.
