1. I was first amazed by that book from the very "About the author" section, where the author is characterized as having literally:
- good experience in software industry
- in a big multinational company

No company name, no country - nothing. I've seen that kind of fact hiding in resumes where folks are playing games trying to get a phone call or an interview, which they would not supposedly get without hiding the material facts.

2. From the very first page you suddenly realize, that the author has no idea what he is talking about. He starts with a company structure, which I have never experienced myself working as QA person in Silicon Valley since 1992. And that would be fine, obviously, but he claims: that is how most of the companies work.

3. Than it comes to the resume structure discussion, which is below any criticism. It is a shame to send out a resume like that.

4. The text is not written in conventional Technical English reader can expect from a book purchased on Amazon. Not to mention things like writing "Microsoft word" with lower case "word". Or "covering letter" as another example.

So, after some time spent (wasted) I came to the conclusion that the author never worked in US and it is not an accident he avoids disclosing where he worked. Well, I looked at the LinkedIn and no wonder - the gentleman lives in India and he never worked in QA role for a small nor big, local nor international company.

I personally consider that kind of "publishing" a fraud.

I was expecting much more from a book like this. I question whether the authors have ever been through a SWTE or SQA interview at all. It seems as though the questions were reverse-engineered from a wealth of random Internet material. The book is full of useless and unnecessary diagrams and the majority of the answers have very little depth. You would get the same value from an hour or two of Google searches.

The quality of software testers are often judge by their techniques, making this book of interview questions and self-study testing important for any certification course review and professional refresher courses alike. A question-answer format lends to review and covers a range of topics, from spoilage and Phage to automation testing and pair-wise. An accompanying cd-rom features the Test Complete software in a pick key for any advanced software engineering library.

The seller did not provide tracking information. However, the book promptly arrived on the very first day of the delivery date range. I am very much satisfied with the service and the condition of the book.
