Interesting, this book is about doing agile in practice.
It consist a bunch of articles which separated in chapters.
Some statements in this book make sense , especially about simple design.
Author speaks about tools and how they can help in areas of software quality.
This book even have chapter on refactoring.
The case with this book is an average one it tries to make look as guidance but it fails on many levels, it just a collection of different articles structured in chapters.
Summary: can i recommend this book? Well if you doing agile development and still new to this workflow maybe you should try this book, but otherwise you would not find anything useful.
