Hi everyone, I am looking for some recommended content on User Story creation practices. Internet links are welcome but I'd also like to find something more "academic" along the lines of a recommended textbook dedicated, or primarily dedicated, to the topic. Thanks for reading.

The most obvious recommendation is "User Stories Applied" by Mike Cohn https://www.amazon.com/User-Stories-Applied-Software-Development/dp/032…

In addition, I would also recommend "Agile Estimating and Planning", also by Mike Cohn, which helps on how to use USer Stories for Sprint and Release Planning.

In general Mike Cohn's web site has lots of information. See https://www.mountaingoatsoftware.com/

Another one of my favorite sources is Roman Pichler's site, for example

Organizing user stories can be hard. A helpful technique is user story mapping, see for example Jeff Patton's book https://www.amazon.com/User-Story-Mapping-Discover-Product/dp/1491904909
