20 Agile Book Tips

These are the 20 books that might earn themselves a place on the big Top 100 Agile Books next year.

I recently posted the 2013 edition of the Agile Books Top 100, and many people seemed to like it. But the problem with a top 100 is… well… it only has 100 places. Very annoying.

And thus a good number of interesting new Agile books were unable to get onto the main list because they were too new, with only few reviews and ratings. In this list you find the books that might be able to earn themselves a spot on the main list next year.

(Note: I only list books with at least some ratings on Amazon and/or GoodReads.)
