Publisher Comments:

Extreme Programming (XP) is a radical new approach to software development that has been accepted quickly because its core practices — the need for constant testing, programming in pairs, inviting customer input, and the communal ownership of code — resonate with developers everywhere. Although many developers feel that XP is rooted in commonsense, its vastly different approach can bring challenges, frustrations, and constant demands on your patience.
