  1. Hi Tom, so happy to see my own book featured on your book page. THANK YOU! I know you read a TON of books so my question for you, what would be your top 3 or 5 Agile related books that you would recommend. (I personally have many agile books but always find it difficult when people ask me for my few favorites.) I am curious about yours.

    Thanks in advance!
    Anthony Mersino

      Hi Tom, I second Anthony’s comment – would you have a top-5 agile books that someone new to this area needs to read?

      Thank you,
      Chris Spraakman

        The idea of a top-five books is interesting. Two questions – 1. Do you think the top five is different if you are an agile coach or a Scrum Master versus if you are a coder or a tester? 2. Other than your book, what is the first book you would grab?
