This review is from: The RSpec Book: Behaviour Driven Development with Rspec, Cucumber, and Friends (The Facets of Ruby Series) (Paperback)I purchased the Kindle edition and I am referring to book continually while I tackle a new project at work. I cannot express enough my appreciation for Dave and team walking me through a thorough TDD project from soup to nuts.
I'm probably the ideal audience for this work. I'm a sysadmin who's been informally hacking Ruby for a few years, but needed to bring more rigor to my work. I'd dinked around with RSpec before but hadn't committed myself to TDD. I decided to have this book and Eloquent Ruby at my side while I started a new project, and both have helped tremendously with code that is simply better in all respects.
The reviewers who fault the authors for not bringing in enough real-world experience have a point, but I think doing so would have made tougher going for those with less experience. I do hope the authors follow-up with another book with more tips from the trenches.
