This short book promises to explain what User Stories are, what they aren't, how to create and utilize them within an Agile/XP approach, and finally how to bring everything together in a short, yet relatively realistic case study. It delivers exactly what it promises and the exercises at the end of the chapters, although not always very well crafted, help the reader to capture the essence of each chapter, as well as focus on the pitfalls. It is not repetitive and does not try to be everything for every type of software developer, and that I consider another positive point.

No matter what methodology you use, software development is a challenging task, and even if your favorite method is Agile or a variation of it, you'll need hard earned experience and probably more than just one book, but if I had to recommend only one introductory book to someone who wants to get the essence of creating User Stories to capture most of the aspects of end user software, then this book would be it.

Good book about new processes we can use to create software for end users. ( )

Clear, readable, quick-moving yet substantive, this book combines a thorough introduction into the concept and uses of user stories, with insights into their strengths relative to similar or confusing tools like "use cases." ( )
