Scrum in Five Minutes - Executive Summary
In his latest blog entry, Jeff Sutherland introduces an attractive and exceptionally concise introduction to the Scrum development process, titled "Scrum in Five Minutes." Created by Swedish consulting firm Softhouse, this 16-page PDF file gives a brief outline of the pieces and players of Scrum.

For those who are new to Scrum, such executive summaries can serve as a useful introduction.
In addition, short summaries like this can facilitate comparisons between the various flavors of agile development. Some others available are visual roadmap of Extreme Programming and What does Lean Software Development Really Boil Down To?
Probably the best Scrum document ever created.
Furthermore, this paper clearly explains Scrum in as many words as should be required. This is pretty much all anyone needs to know and implement Scrum (preferrably with the help of an experienced Agile Coach).
Well done. Don't read the book. Read this PDF! :-)

Very good overview
See the following excerpt.
Is Scrum a method just for software development?
Not at all! The method can be adapted for all different types of
projects ? for instance newspaper production or medical engineering
