Scrum From The Beginning

I'm currently working in my very first Scrum environment and I love it. Unfortunately I've come in late so I didn't get to see the process from the start. And that is the piece of the puzzle I seem to be missing in my understand of the entire thing. Can someone recommend a book that details how a project is started using Scrum?

Scrum doesn't really say how you should start beyond having a product owner, a team, and a prioritized product backlog. In practice, a lot of thinking, meetings and decisions take place before an organization says, "ok, we have a project now". I don't think that process is fundamentally different whether you use Scrum or some other methodology in running that project.

Thanks Lasse. That's really what I was wondering more than anything.
