Congratulations, you're our target audience! We had in mind programmers with an interest in agile development but not necessarily any practical experience practicing it.
We assume that you understand the basics of professional software development in a modern language (J2EE certainly qualifies) and don't explain IDEs or object oriented programming, but we cover the agile practices in detail, assuming only that our readers have an interest in them.
I can see three benefits for you:
* Improve your understanding of the agile practices through studying and practicing them with your work
* Learn strategies for adopting them with your team
* Reflect on what works best for you and your team and refine your process to improve how you deliver high-quality software
