    1 thought on “Rocks Into Gold: An Agile Parable”

    1. Books don’t have to be long to deliver valuable lessons. in this short story, Clarke turns a “boring” business chart into a compelling story. Worth reading it and fully recommended.

    2. Short, but good. Interesting points on the benefits of iterative development.Sad that the programmer didn't get more than a pat on the back.

    3. While a good read on it's own better check out "Rolling Rocks Downhill" -- that book is more detailed and well written than this one.

    4. I've read this book in a couple versions. It's great stuff and a nice, fast read.And Clarke is a great guy. I consider him a friend.

    5. A short novel, finished in less than 2 hours. Interesting story to read if you are still skeptical about agile process.
