This is an excellent read. The book bridges how test automation is marketed, imagined and the real benefits that are available to the skilled practioner who properly wields the tools of test automation. I wish these secrets and this wisdom was available to me before we first tried to implement a tool. Reading the automation evaluation chapter opened my eyes to the possibilities of managing expectations before diving into a project where test automation will have moderate benefit. ROI robbers was a tough read as I realized that we have been paying a lot of ‘stupid tax’. Not anymore though! Take the scholarship, save yourself expensive hard knocks, and get this book.
