Highly recommend this book as an introduction of Agile & Scrum development to Product Owners (product management) and Software Development leaders. Also good for Executive leaders/ stakeholders looking for an overview on Agile terminology and concepts that their teams are talking about!
Experienced Scrum Masters and trained Agile Product Owners will find Mr. Cohen's good use of citations and references helpful for further research and reading.
