Also, I get accused of going overboard on documentation while I'm writing code but the styles presented in the book--which are presented in a "here's the extremely specific way I do things. Let me tell you about it for pages and pages!" manner--are truly gruesome.
The author feels like that one over-confident coworker that no one likes who got hired because he's family friends with the boss and is allowed to run around doing whatever he wants.
I just bought several books on Amazon for professional development and can say with honesty that I learned nothing useful from this overpriced drivel.
Our Center of Excellence team are in the process of planning a workshop for our testers and Greg's book will be one of the hubs that the course will revolve around.
If you are serious about automation in an agile world - you HAVE to read this book.
We even used Greg's phrase "what is eating your lunch" as a conversation starter and foot in the door when talking to our Agile Teams.
When asked about recommended books for our new testers - this is one of the top four I recommend.
This book should assist you with breaking the ice on any test/check automation project. I am currently working on a selenium project and wanted a high-level overview to use as guidance in combination with books on the language bindings that I was currently working with.
I highly recommend this book whether you are a seasoned veteran or just getting started because there should be something for you to learn or question your current process.
Virtually all descriptions provided in this book are extremely vague. The author states that he worked for an "aerospace company." Great. Which one? Where? When? For how long? What was his title? Who did he know there? etc. Give your audience some juicy details, please! I worked in software test in aerospace long enough to know that testers there should probably not be writing books on test automation. Their methodologies are outdated and defunct. It's very clear that this author has developed most of his test automation frameworks in VBA. Try this in the "REAL WORLD" and you will get eaten alive. Today, we test in Python, Ruby, Perl, Java, C#. We need to perform Continuous Delivery and provide real-time test progress and status metrics to stakeholders. We need to integrate with test case managers and know about open-source test runners. You will not learn about any of that here.
The worst part of this book is that it contains a number of poisonous suggestions that NOBODY should follow! Ridiculous naming conventions, poor programming practices, and much more. Buy this book and send directly to your competition. It's the only way you will benefit. If you want a solid source of information, start reading the ISTQB syllabi. If you do, you may have hope after all.
