In the Top 100

Jurgen Appelo, the wildly popular Dutch blogger, makes lists, among other things. His latest is the Top 100 Agile Books. He’s worked out a formula that takes into account reviews, average ratings, and continued interest. Not perfect, but I’m not going to complain, because I made the list–twice!

Behind Closed Doors: Secrets of Great Management (co-authored with Johanna Rothman)

Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great (co-authored with Diana Larsen), was also picked by’s editors as one of the Top 10 Tech Books the year it came out.

In case you are wondering, I’ve got two books in the works now.  Team Traps (How to dig out if you are in one, and steer clear if you’re not) & an as-yet untitled book on shifting management out of command and control.
