Courtesy of Tomek Kaczanowski from Warszawa JUG:

First of all - this book is one of the "ShortCut" serie. It's not a "web-apps-testing-bible" (it has only 60 pages). It's a concise introduction to twill and selenium - tools that allows you to test your web-apps. It's worth noticing that the book is written by the authors of twill and selenium (IMHO it's always good to hear the very author speaking about his product).

The book consists of three parts:
- introduction to twill
- introduction to selenium
- testing real app with both tools
The authors assume that you don't know anything about these tools, so they start with basics. But they don't elaborate on simple stuff, but keep on moving fast, so every new page shows you something new, and soon you find yourself testing ajax-based apps or preparing database fixture for your tests.
Because of the concise nature of this book, you won't find any discussions of possible pro/cons of proposed solutions. Neither will you find anything about the downsides (or weak points) of the tools (like the lack of i18n support for selenium).

If you begin (or plan to begin) functional testing of your web-apps, than you'll benefit from this book. If you already have some experience with twill/selenium you probably don't need this book, but you'll surely find some interesting tips here (but don't expect too many).
