I first discovered this book by Cem Kaner, James Bach, Bret Pettichord, years ago after I attended a training on Rational Unified Process. Unfortunately, I was transitioning to a new work then so reading it became a low priority. By the time I wanted to read it, I realized that I have misplaced/lost my copy.
As I restarted my journey towards a deeper understanding of “real” software testing, I knew that I had to get this book. Although it was (weirdly) more expensive than paperback, I decided to go with the Kindle version. It turned out to be a good decision since the foreword asked me (the reader) NOT to drink the entire bottle, i.e. not to read the book in one sitting. Instead, read a couple of lessons a day and ponder on it a bit. Getting the paperback would have made this pretty inconvenient.
I will not list down those 293 lessons discussed in the book (although I might come up with another entry after the end of my reading) since simply posting the title of the lessons might just confuse you into taking the lesson out of context. But, from the first few lessons that I have recently read (as well as the couple I browsed through before)… I highly recommended this book to all software testers.
