These are the 100 best Agile Books in the world, based on reviews and ratings on Amazon and GoodReads.
Who cares about Pacific Rim when there is the annual Top 100 Agile Books? This year’s results can only be described as spectacular! The DevOps movement gives the Lean Startup movement a black eye with The Phoenix Project, which came out of nowhere and grabbed the number one slot. But last year‘s number one The Lean Startup (now #5) won’t give up easily, because several follow-ups have emerged with a splash high up in the chart (#3, #6, #18, #25). And did anyone expect Ken Rubin (at #2) to be such a formidable fighter?!
With 24 new entries this might be the most dynamic year in the Agile books business. It’s time for you all to make some more room on your book shelves.
Are you curious to know what managers can do in an Agile organization?
This ranking of 100 best agile books is the average of five different rankings: the number of Amazon reviews, the number of GoodReads reviews, the average Amazon rating, the average GoodReads rating, and the number of days since first publication. That means this list shows you a mix of the most popular, best rated, and (relatively) newest books in this category.
This year I’ve decided to also show you which books dropped out of the main chart. Please take a moment to pay your respect and say goodbye to some of the best Agile oldies ever written. Their time has come.
