Editorial Reviews


"The author has provided very helpful and hands-on materials to individuals and managers who are moving from the waterfall (phased) method of software testing. I found the style very reader-friendly, with "suggestions on how to read this book," and the ability to jump to the section that will be most helpful to the reader. This volume will be a valuable addition to your library."
Brad Reid,

Format: Paperback
I just finished reading this book, and while it wasn't very helpful for me, I am considerate of the fact that perhaps I am not the intended audience.

I have worked in an agile environment for some time, and was looking for more information explicitly on testing, and how we can improve our testing processes (particularly integration/system/acceptance).

Instead, this book seems more tailored for existing testers that have never worked in an Agile environment. The book spends a lot of time explaining Agile methodologies, and at times feels like any other generic Agile development book (I understand that testing and development are closely aligned as part of Agile development).

So for me, there wasn't enough information to help us improve the way we test. However, if you are a tester that has a lot of experience in a more classical (e.g. waterfall) environment, this book might help you approach an Agile environment.

The book is packed with case studies, which could be an effective mechanism for learning about the ways that Agile methods can be applied. I found them somewhat boring, with not enough detail on specific testing techniques.
