Thank you! I'm pleased to hear you are interested in learning more about agile. I had already recommended on the forum that a newly-interested programmer might be interested in buying Agile Samurai and Agile In A Flash together, since our publisher is offering a substantial discount when you order them from Pragmatic Bookshelf
I think one of the things Tim and I recognized after writing the cards (which took most of the summer--it turns out it's actually harder to write less than it is to pour out voluminous pages) was that this really is the one place to quickly find most "all things agile." I believe the Agile in a Flash deck is a good companion to the Agile Samurai and perhaps a couple other books I would recommend on learning agile (I like James Shores' book The Art of Agile Software Development, for example, and Mike Cohn's book Succeeding With Agile).
