About the book
Most of all I enjoyed the writing style of the book. The author had a very casual tone that made it easier to read than other technical books that I’ve attempted to read, and while that’s less related to the content, writing a technical book that I can stand reading gets an author so many points.
One of the things I liked about the book that I’d also use as the major criticism is that it has a broad range in topics. Topics include: unit tests, integration tests, code complexity, code coverage, event-based programming, debugging, and automation. I categorize all of those as things I’m happy to learn more about, but sometimes the segue was a little shaky. Another downside (for me) – a lot of the testing examples were with YUI, something I don’t use, well, ever.
