Hi, just some little things that stood out to me whilst reading the introduction (as at the date of this post). I understand it is in a pre-editing stage, but thought I better mention them just in case (as they are in the free download which readers may base an opinion on).

The first few may well be ok, they just read a little strange to me (refer to a real editor).

Who Should Read this book (pg xxi)
"A few years ago...have not heard of ..."
Could be "... had not heard of.."

"... problems that teams faced ..."
Could be "... problems that teams face ..." (1st line, xxii)

"They are often completely ... that had the same issues."
Could be "They are often completely ... that have the same issues." (last line same para)

Notes on formatting
Try this: Steal ideas from other teams
"Good ideas that you can try to adress ..."
Could be "Good ideas that you can try to address ..." (pg xxv)

Avoid this (VIP): Shooting yourself in the foot
"...it means that it the problem can occurring in many different contexts..."
Could be "it means that the problem can occur in many different contexts" (pg xxvi)

Re: "Introduction" minor typos and grammatical things
thanks, i'll fix this. you can ignore spelling/grammar errors in the future, the book will go through copy-editing now.
