A Good 'Start' for Testers.
Reviewed in the United States on May 23, 2015
This is the first book any tester should read, as it will prime them to think the right way about what it is that we DO! If you are truly interested in increasing your skill-craft as a tester, then you should be heavily involved in the context-driven testing community, or which James Bach is the leader. The thing I love most about this book is that it does not have to be read from start to finish. It is divided up into over 200 lessons that are somewhat related but mostly can stand alone. These can be read in 5-15 minutes each, so a tester could digest these topics in their downtime or off-hours if you are really interested in becoming a better tester. Start with this book, then read James Bach's 'Secrets of a Buccaneer Scholar' and Daniel Khaneman's 'Thinking Fast and Slow'. You'll be off to a good start, then dive into the blogs (satisfice.com, developsense.com, etc.) and the rest of the community.
