5.0 out of 5 stars The Book of Roy
This is not the bible. Bibles are prescriptive and dogmatic. This is pragmatic and thoroughly effective and can really improve the quality of your code.

Buy one for each team member and set aside study time. Remember that not even Kent Beck did TDD properly in his book on it, so don't even think about it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but feels a little repetitive.
I bought this book after watching some of Roy's online videos and reading his articles. If you are starting with unit testing then I suggest this book is a good starting point together with looking at the Pluralsight or other online training videos to get the most out of it. I'm about 75% through the book and it feels slightly repetitive and wished there were more good...

If anybody runs into a third sprint on a 5-point story and then calls a meeting to discuss whether you should use under_scores or PascalCasing to name test methods then sack him immediately ('cos it *will* be a him) for the sake of the whole team.

This review is from: The Art of Unit Testing: with examples in C# (Paperback)
I bought this book after watching some of Roy's online videos and reading his articles. If you are starting with unit testing then I suggest this book is a good starting point together with looking at the Pluralsight or other online training videos to get the most out of it. I'm about 75% through the book and it feels slightly repetitive and wished there were more good (and bad) examples of how to test and how not to test. I expected some more 'secrets' from one of the master's of unit testing and its a shame that some of the .NET technologies chosen in the book are probably not the ones you want to use.

In summary a good book but sadly not a gold mine of information.
