Format: Hardcover
As one of the book's authors (I wrote the chapter called "Trading Money for Time"), I had the pleasure of watching this book come together over several months and reviewing the chapters and having mine reviewed as well. I can honestly state that this book is unique in the software testing world. It is a book dedicated to reducing the costs associated with software testing, written from the perspectives of those who actually spend their time in the trenches doing the testing. Ranging from identifying the costs and their spheres, what we should do, and how we should do it, there are chapters that covers all areas of the business. This book is relevant to financial officers, executives, development managers, developers, test managers, and yes, even testers :).

Again, I have a very biased opinion here, so I will not mind if you take this review with a grain of salt. I will say that this book fills a very important place in your software development, software testing, business and finance library. We found it to be a labor of love to write this book. We hope you will read it in the same spirit in which it was written.

I clumsily began software testing after two previous successful careers, as a math teacher and a tax analyst. This book shored up some of my best testing practices and that of my colleagues. It should be required reading for anyone in a software development life-cycle.
