1. Agile in the Real World by Dom Davis (https://twitter.com/idomdavis) of Virgin Wines

"With over a decades experience of working in Agile teams, and direct experience of introducing Agile to companies that didn't even realise they needed it, Dom Davis has learned a thing or two about Agile in the Real World. By looking at the problems faced at Virgin Wines, and the solutions used to work around them, Agile in the Real World looks at what it really means to be Agile and how to introduce or improve your own Agile practices."
