Following is a list of all the professional books I read since 2014, when I started my agile journey as Scrum Master.
This list also represents how my interest changed over time from agile books to topics like psychology and leadership as I wanted to do and understand more and more as an Agile Coach. Those highlighted with bold I consider must reads.
