Hi. I'm beginning on Extreme Programming. What is the best book to start?

Thanks.

I'd start with Kent Beck's "white book", and then perhaps take a look at the one he wrote with Martin Fowler.

For a managers point of view, "Sam's Teach Yourself Extreme Programming in 24 Hours" is surprisingly good, too.


The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
