I would like to thank Musthafa for the excellent work that he has done in authoring the “Scrum Narrative and PSM Exam Guide”. The book is probably the only one out there which explains the dense concepts in the Scrum Guide in a very lucid manner. Though I have been a CSM certified practitioner, the book helped me find gaps in my knowledge and I was able to contextualise the content easily, relating it back to the Scrum Guide. It goes without saying that I cleared PSM 1 in the first attempt with a proficiency level of 95%.

I know it is late but this was due for a long time. Thank you Musthafa for this wonderful little book. This book is easy to read, to the point and extremely valuable for my quest in becoming a Scrum Master. It can cater to any audience be it a person with prior IT knowledge or a person who is new to this wonderful world of Scrum. You can feel Musthafa always available as a constant guide helping you unlearn anti-patterns, reinforce the correct Scrum patterns and help you not any get the PSM1 certification but enrich you with knowledge which you can use in your work and daily life.

Thank you Musthafa for this wonderful little book. This book is designed very simple and helped in reinforcing the concepts then and there in each chapter. Like to highlight that the chapter on Unlearning some of the concepts (e.g. User stories, Hardening sprint, Sprint 0 etc.) Is quite relevant. Infact when i read I could understand the Scrum Guide better after reading the book. Looking forward such simple but effective books on other topics like DevOps also.

I passed PSPO I with 97.5% in first attempt
I was really unsure what material to refer for certification other than Scrum guide. My search of material ended at this book and ‘The Professional Scrum Product Owner: Guide to Pass PSPO 1 Certification’ book by same author. I referred these 2 books to prepare for this exam.
It improved my understanding of scrum and why is scrum (and empiricism) needed. It gave practical guidance about implementing scrum.
I bought pdf and took print as I needed a hard copy to study

This is the most interesting and fascinating book on agile, I have ever read. This is the recommended book if you want to clear PSM1. I cleared my PSM1 using this book solely. It not just explains the concepts clearly but also guides you as to how to prepare for the PSM1 certification. This book is a must have :)

Review by: Parag Parikh on April 25, 2018 :
Great book to understand the agile and scrum concepts which are explained in simple language and examples provided. Best part is that it very well manages explanation within boundaries of authentic scrum version. If you are appearing for PSM1, a must read book.

I gone through this book as a preparation to appear for PSM I exam. Self sufficient book to understand basic of scrum especially for newbie like me to scrum. Well explained with examples to assimilate the concepts. I passed my exam with 97.5 % on my first try. I highly recommend this book to understand scrum and prepare for the exam. Thanks to Musthafa for such a informative book. I used only Scrum guide,open assessment, Mikhail Lapshin model exam and this book for my preparation.

Review by: Yasemin D. on Dec. 22, 2017 :
I bought and read this detailed and well prepared book carefully after I studied guides, open assessments and some other recommended books. One day before PSM I exam day, I reread section summary pages again and went over all questions in the book as the author says. I passed my PSM exam with %96.3 on my first try. I highly recommend this book for deeply explaining Scrum subjects and a very good preparation for the exam. I really appreciate Musthafa’s hard work. He is also a very kind and thoughtful person when you need some help.
