Books are a passion of mine. Below is a working list of Agile books that I have read, along with links to a review (if applicable).
My general grading scale is:
Five stars: must-read and a class above
Four stars: Recommended and worth your time and money
Three stars: Good book, but you can probably take it or leave it. The material is probably covered better elsewhere.
Two stars: Not recommended.
One star: Run away! The only value this book has is as a fire starter.
