Over the weekend a friend who is just starting to head up a new web product team asked me for for some pointers on good agile project/methods books. I'll try to make my choices as technology agnostic as possible, but some of the material might be more specific to my friend's technology stack (Java/Spring/Hibernate). Not all of these are new books from 2006, so this is definitely for the project manager or technical lead that hasn't read many books on agile software.
