This is a new series by agile42 coaches to help you build your Agile library (bookshelf or virtual that is!) It follows up on the great success of last year's Summer Reading List that included an eclectic selection of titles ranging from business books to military history.

This first installation of Top Five Books is devoted to the key role in the Scrum process – the ScrumMaster. We have interviewed our colleagues and here's a (difficult) selection.
