5.0 out of 5 stars The Ink Book, December 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
To master the virtue of the fountain pen is to govern the world and oneself, thus the fountain pen is the basis of strategy. The principle is "strategy by means of the fountain pen". If he attains the virtue of the fountain pen, one man can write ten books. Just as one man can write ten, so a hundred men can write a thousand, and a thousand men can write ten thousand. In my strategy, one man is the same as ten thousand, so this strategy is the complete warrior's craft.

If you try to wield the fountain pen quickly you will mistake the Way. To wield the fountain pen well you must wield it calmly.

Well, I was seriously thinking about buying a Kindle 2, but now that Amazon has broken the text-to-speech function, why bother?

5.0 out of 5 stars Developers and Customers, July 21, 2005
This book has been called "two books in one", and I definitely agree. The first two parts are for customers and other non-programming team members. The latter parts are aimed at developers and have the technical topics. Ward said that as he and Rick were working on the book it started to get confusing, switching back and forth between the business-facing discussions and the technical discussions. Ward felt it best to cover the basics first, so they agreed to separate the book to speak to the two audiences one at a time. The resulting organization allows the book plenty of breathing room to address the needs of both audiences.

The "Questions & Answers" sections scattered throughout the book contain some of the most valuable gems. Here are a couple of examples related to ActionFixture:

* From Chapter 10, p 73, "Some action rows have a keyword in the last cell. Is that optional?"

* From Chapter 22, p 193, "Why does the actor have to be a subclass of fit.Fixture?

You'll have to buy the book to see the answers, though!

I wrote of a conversion of FIT to the Objective-C language -- with a bit of help from Ward. Still I found real value in having a book that speaks from the customer perspective and delves into creating FIT tables from that perspective.
