Cucumber has changed the working lives of developers, testers and businesses. It's provided a language that has enabled developers and testers to specify what a company actually wants, in a language that everyone understands and can engage with. It's provided the tools to check a piece of software against these wants. It's power is in the combination of clarity of requirements + a testing tool that automatically tests against these requirements. It's a bit of a dream. Plus, the toolkit just works, incredibly well.

This book is the ONLY place to start your journey with Cucumber and the only place to return for clarity and direction. Matt and Aslak create and maintain the Cucumber tool and understand it's intention and implementation.

Enjoy!

I have read this book some time back and words cannot fully put in words as to how useful it is, it shows the authors deep understanding and love for the subject. You need to have a basic ruby experience to apply the ideas as you go through the contents. Even if you are not a familiar with ruby, you can still take away a lot of things from it. You will begin to appreciate how nicely BDD, Cucumber fit with the agile software development and story telling. I have managed to learn a lot from it within days and then be able to build my own test frameworks. Fully reccomend it to any one who wants to learn what BDD is and how BDD can be applied to improve your product quality.

The net result of reading this book is that you feel like you've used the technology and understand why it is the way it is. I would have preferred a bit more emphasis on patterns and for there to be a section on the now more standard Cucumber JVM-based approach. However, this book is still eminently readable and understandable, even to non-Ruby experts.

One of the authors is the guy who came up with the idea. You can't get a more authoritative source.

Brilliant!

This book is exactly how I would have liked to learn Cucumber. It guides you along patiently yet without a redundant word or sentence. Every concept is illustrated with examples and even the way BDD can deliver value becomes clearer through the way the examples are built up and discussed. The book taught me a surprising number of new tricks, and I was pleased to find it explains some of the pitfalls you might encounter on implementing Cucumber and how to avoid them.

Found so many errors within the first 15 minutes of reading that I'm wondering how easy it's going to be to learn anything from this book. Very disappointing so far.

Must read for anyone who writes Cucumber tests. Have seen some senior developers/testers making basic mistakes even after years of working with Cucumber. If only they had read the first 50 pages of this book!

Great book and easy to read. Half the examples are broken in this version though, maybe it needs fixing/updating.

This book is a great overview of Cucumber! However if you are new to BDD then I would recommend also buying The RSpec Book: Behaviour Driven Development with RSpec, Cucumber, and Friends (Facets of Ruby) as it helps clarify the line between acceptance tests and unit tests.
