Was looking for more of a guide and less philosophy about testing. First 50% of book was a great "how to" with examples reference of initial basic testing theory. Second half was a re-hash of blog posts that go more into philosophical why instead of how. Wish the second half was more of the first. Maybe a 1 hour read.

I can't even name this book a book, because it is too small to be a great manual about unit-testing. But it's not bad introduction to the world of the testable code. It covers basic concepts you should know to read more complex books about testing.

I can't say enough good things about this book.
It's simple, yet rich in terms of content. It covers almost everything you'll need to be able to take the next step towards testing more in your PHP development.

A pretty good introduction to automated testing and related design principles, focusing on the PHP ecosystem specifically. Does a good job of explaining WHY you want automated testing and HOW you can make it happen in PHP systems. Couldn't ask for much more.

Concise if limiting in coverage of what it takes to make code testable. The author knows his trade and it shows in the few gems that are in the book. Unfortunately they tend to be wrapped up in a meandering of filler.
