Rick, Mike, and Matt talk with Jack Walser about his new book The Agile Thinker.  The Agile Thinker takes Agility and introduces it to the layperson, so they can use the benefits of Agility not only at work, but also in their personal lives.  And, honestly, nowadays, it's difficult to tell the difference between work and personal lives.
