Should we add references to technique descriptions?

    I agree with Drennan

    Great idea to have them after each chapter! For me there are two use cases I considered:

    1. I am using the book as a daily guide and choose which chapter to reference to address the burning issue in my team. I want to dig deeper into a certain topic and turn to the end of the chapter and find the book I need to read on that. Much faster than going through the whole list at the end of the book.

    2. I just want to read a book on a topic and pick up your book to help me find it. I search by chapter to the what I think it could be under and find it much easier than going through the whole list at the end.

    I'm also for referencing good sources of ideas.

    Do you find references at the end of a chapter easier to work with, or a single list of references at the end of the book better?

    I think we need:

    - a distinct glossary of references
    - in the content only references to the most important practices & principles (~ Core Agile Practices, Manifestos,...) and only to the authors/sources that have created that knowledge or are offering the best insight

    Why ?

    - we want to provide references , but we do not want to induce the impression that content as too many heavy details
    - we want to promote core principles and practices & best sources

    I also think Yes. It will be good to reference existing practices, and allow others to research these individual practices for themselves; It will allow others to deepen their own learning and broaden their horizons.

    I say yes.. reason being is that there are so many books out there and a source of truth is needed. Case in point is when you look up on Acceptance Criteria vs CoS and what you want is actually Mike's resource on that.. the truth does get a bit distorted by other Agile thought leaders who are experts in their own right.. but they aint Mike :)

    Here's a question we've been struggling with.  Let's assume that each of the process goal excerpts is a chapter.  Should we be adding references to detailed descriptions of the techniques, be they books, articles, blog postings, ... at the end of each chapter?  So if TDD is an option for one of the decision points, should we add a reference to a TDD book or two?

    Why or why not?
