2.0 out of 5 stars
Frustrating read, 22 Jun. 2013
I am finding this book very hard to read. The style of writing is tedious and there is not much content in every paragraph you read. The way the TDD thought process and its inevitable conflicts are portrayed seems childish and distracts the reader more than anything.
The author is trying very hard to be entertaining but that is not what I'm looking for in a TDD book. Take the following excerpt for instance:
"You aren't thinking about the implementation of equals(), are you? Good. Me Neither. After snapping the back of my hand with a ruler, I'm thinking about how to test ..."
This book is full of comments like this which I found unnecessary and distracting. I was expecting a `more to the point' style of writing which unfortunately, this book fails to deliver.
