    1. This book is just a bunch of essays on testing server side testing, web testing, automated, manual Just stories and testers experience Seems this book should have been for all, but the one who is not interested in ALL will find not so much interesting here I liked only one article from there written by Lisa Crispin This was about her team and their successfull start with Agile Really inspiring.
