Did anybody here read this book? Did anybody tried to apply this process?

It looks like it will cure all the problem we have in our team, but I don't want to let it me another managerial inspirational performance...

I am reading it at the moment (up to page 80 or so); I bought it after it was so warmly recommended on the Xtreme Programming homepage.

Since I am not into project management, I do not know if I will have the opportunity to put much of it to use. It sounds interesting, though, and some of the things said concerning motivation and atttitude (like "You cannot be too emotional" or "Never do anything dumb on purpose") can be put to use without being able to change the overall team structure.

If you really try to adopt the core protocols for a real life project, I would be very much interested in how it works out. I imagine that you might find many resistancies with fellow colleagues and management at the beginning.

Have fun,
