Agile SW Development - Here are the Bibles (Books that you should read)

For all the hype about Agile, I have seen very few people who have really understood the concepts and processes (you can't understand unless you know how they came about). And this often leads to people making the wrong conclusions about Agile (It's too easy, It's too tough, It's too radical, I can customise it as I wish)...

Here are some classic books that you need to reference if you are serious about Agile. You may not be able to really read all but any one can be a start...

- Agile Project Management with Scrum, Ken Schwaber, Microsoft Press
- Agile and Iterative Development,A Managers Guide, Craig Larman, Addison-Wesley
- Agile Software Development with Scrum, Ken Schwaber and Mike Beedle, Prentice Hall
- The Enterprise and Scrum, Ken Schwaber, Microsoft Press
- Implementing Lean Software Development,From Concept to Cash, Mary & Tom Poppendieck, Addison-Wesley **
- Agile Adoption Patterns,A Roadmap to Organizational Success, Amr Elssamadisy, Addison-Wesley
- Scaling Software Agility,Best Practices for Large Enterprise, Dean Leffingwell, Addison-Wesley **
- User Stories Applied,For Agile Software Development, Mike Cohn, Addison-Wesley
- Agile Estimating and Planning, Mike Cohn, Addison-Wesley

There is a very good wiki on Agile too.

Hope this helps...
