Overall I found it very useful in figuring out how to break down user stories, apply impact mapping and goals along with user stories, how to measure through rolling average time analysis and T-shirt sizes instead of story points, and comes with examples of how Gojko's teams have done so.
I enjoyed the format, which is a lot like software design patterns -- there is a context that describes the problem, a brief description of the solution, and then a section that shows how to apply the solution, along with warnings for when the solution may not be applicable.
The book is quite slim, but as I read it I had a sense that the authors had gone to great lengths to cut each idea down to its essential elements. I also got the sense that the experience (evidence) behind each idea is considerably deeper than each brief synopsis might imply. I suppose they could have piled on the evidence and written a much heavier tome, but it wouldn't necessarily have been more convincing because in the end you have to try these out for yourself to see if they will work for you. I appreciated the effort they put into getting right to each point.

Each chapter is pretty short often only a couple of pages per concept so it’s easy to read and think about it and then decide whether to continue reading or take and apply the concept discussed.
