I really enjoyed reading this book, not only in regards to the breadth of information pertaining to Digital, but also the depth of information. You will receive many insights and examples in regards to Digital, not just from the Authors perspective, but from other industry leaders and experts as well.
This book is definitely useful as a reference guide for information. One example I found helpful was a summary of recent Android Version release notes and issues related to each version. This will enable Testers to quickly see what issues have been prevalent in older versions of Android, thus saving time and increasing coverage, and having more focused regression test cases written, executed and results reviewed for those scenarios.
Another example that hit the mark for me, was in relation to scope of testing and test planning. The "9 Boxes" checklist is essential to test planning and coverage for mobile apps, including types of testing and what tests should be included under each testing type. The book actually has examples filled in for an example mobile app that you can use to get up and running quickly with your test planning and scope, plus found it interesting that they had one for iOT as well.
This book is a must read for anyone connected to the Digital Transformation of today, whether you are a digital user, tester, manager, developer or business unit, this book has something for everyone. Relevant subjects include Shifting Left, DevOps, Quality, Mobile Devices, iOT, Real End User Experience Testing, Coverage, Cloud, Automation, and CI, just to name a handful.
It's a great mix of examples, lessons learned, past, present and even future nuggets of information around the Age of Digital. I highly recommend reading this book in order to better understand each of our roles in Digital, and how to best combat the Digital Disruption going on in the marketplace. I have this book next to my desktop computer at all times and refer to it frequently throughout the week. Pick up a copy today and you will be glad you did!
A must-read book for whoever cares about the quality of their apps. Mobile apps need to survive ongoing and continual changes of the run-time environment, new devices (and IOT), new OS, new capabilities (eg Bot). Any and all of these can expose multiple problems with existing apps. Eran and several top notch contributors make it clear that active apps demand constant care even if functionalities dont change. They provide meaningful way of optimizing one's mobile app development and testing practices. The primary focus is automation testing. Some tables/figures are barely readable though, but this is quite expected with paperback quality. I would have loved to read your perspective on how Artificial Intelligence will impact mobile testing. Automation testing is still highly manual today, and we wont be able to cope with the growing complexity of apps with the toolset we have today.
Great book. Invaluable advice. Well written. Eran - Please consider adding an index and also larger left and right margins. A kindle version would also be good as I buy most books on kindle only these days...

The Digital Quality Handbook explores what you can do to ensure quality with mobile products. A very practical book, lots of useful ideas that you can use to improve testing and deliver high quality mobile apps.
As someone that works in the continuous testing space, this book really is a "handbook" of good ideas, thought leadership and actionable tips from many, many quality industry leaders. More than I expected out of a first-time author. Worth the read, and worth keeping on my desk.
