    Thanks for a great podcast Dina. I listened to it twice last week and went straight to amazon after the second listen and ordered the book. I think Mike has a great, easy presentation style and made his info so easy to absorb.

    I Leave for vacation in 2 days - leaving my laptop but taking the book!

    Hi Jeanelle! I’m glad you’re finding the information from Mike useful! He does have an easy-going style, doesn’t he? I’ll pass along the nice thoughts! Have fun on vacation!

    Just listened to this podcast today…did you ever take Mike’s Scrum course? How did it go?

    Hi codecraig - actually, I never did get to Mike’s course! I had a project conflict so I gave up my spot so one of my fellow PM’s could go. She has now turned into one of the best ScrumMasters we have at work and chalks it up to Mike’s class!
