Denied 1 star only because it's an interesting idea,
This review is from: Test Driven Development (The Addison-Wesley Signature Series) (Paperback)I'm going to list my 3 day old copy in the Used section after I've finished writing this review.
This book is in 4 sections, each of which would be a magazine article for any other author:
1. A tiring, trivial example of TDD strung out over a staggering 80 pages in normal Kent-Beck-six-sentences-per-page style.
There is very little new in this book and even less to help with doing it on a real project.
But wait! Before I'm branded an unthinking curmudgeon it's not all bad; for those who have pondered the vexing issue of how to add a parameter to a method then tucked away on page 190 I found this pearl of wisdom:
1. If the method is an interface, add the parameter to it.
Well what can I say...eureka? Thanks for that Kent, I'll raise it at my next developer meeting but tell'em I thought of it, they'll think me a genius.
How Addison Wesley can put this book in the same class as Martin Fowler's stuff is a mystery, the Fowler books contain more information in the Preface.
