Top 20 Agile Books for Product Owners

top-agile-books-for-product-owners

A few month ago I started to collect a list of the Top Agile Books for Scrum Masters from various social channels. I received so much feedback on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook so that I decided to divide the books into five different categories: Top agile books for Scrum Masters, Product Owners, Agile Developers, Leadership & Agile Coaching. In this blog post I want to show you the Top 20 Agile Books for Product Owners recommend by the community.

The following list is ordered based on reviews and ratings on Amazon and GoodReads. If you think that there is an important book that should be added to that list, leave a comment after the list. As I do not agree 100% on the communities´ priority, I added my personal Top 5 books after the list:
