    Comments about O'Reilly Media Practical JIRA Administration:

    Have been using Jira out of the box for years now.

    Finally started customizing for some new projects and was figuring it out as I went.

    I'm glad I found this before going to far down the road. I've already started unraveling things and doing them properly after reading this book!

    Usually these things are too technical, Matt does an excellent job at only hitting the key points and supplementing / tying together existing documentation rather than redoing it.

      This is an excellent desktop reference for both new and seasoned JIRA administrators. After 5 1/2 yrs of JIRA admin, I still found things I didn't know. I highly recommend it.
