3.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile read for software testers and developers, 17 Dec 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: How to Break Software: A Practical Guide to Testing (Paperback)
There are very few books on software testing - or even few comprehensive testing related sections of other more general programming books. Whittaker's book is a very practical guide and all too short! It's valuable to developers as well as testers (ignoring whether or not that distinction really ought to exist!) in that it explains what areas are likely to be exploitable by testers - ie, where code will break.
Quite readable and useful, if possibly commonsense in the main. The appendices were unnecessary padding though - a wider look at testing in general (rather than just "breaking") would have been a better use of the space. (Appendix C did include a bit of that but, as a reprint of an IEEE paper, it wasn't as accessible as the rest of the book.)
