The concept of user stories has its roots as one of the main tenets of Extreme
Programming. In simple terms, user stories represent an effective means of gathering
requirements from the customer (roughly akin to use cases). This book describes user
stories and demonstrates how they can be used to properly plan, manage, and test
software development projects. The book highlights both successful and unsuccessful
implementations of the concept, and provides sets of questions and exercises that drive
home its main points. After absorbing the lessons in this book, readers will be able to
introduce user stories in their organizations as an effective means of determining
precisely what is required of a software application.
