First, let’s set some context. This is the sequel to the "Agile Testing" book that Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory wrote back in 2008, and that I did a review of in the early days of the TESTHEAD blog back in 2010. In that review, I said that I didn’t have the time in an Agile team to give the book justice, so I reviewed it on how I thought that Agile seemed to me and the advice given. This time, with More Agile Testing, I have four and a half years of experience with Agile teams, and I can categ ...more

Really recommended to read for everyone who wants to increase knowledge and self confidence in agile testing. Also very good for leads and managers to find ideas, how to improve quality assurance in the company.
Dmitrijs Prigodics
Объемный труд, весьма широко охватывающий заявленную тему, однако, при этом, весьма поверхностно для тех, кто уже не первый год крутится в профессии. А вот для начинающих тестировщиков - самое то, загрузить инфой, показать перспективы, дать кое-какие примеры, указать на то, что деятельность QAя не исчерпывается непосредственно тестированием, а, с ростом, даже приходится лезть и в аналитику, и в кодинг, и в менеджмент, и в девопс, куда ж без него сейчас. Ну и приятно видеть огромный список литера ...more

"То, что мы не оправдали ваши ожидания – это не наши проблемы." (c) А.Аршавин

Я ужасно ждал эту книгу от МИФа с момента ее анонса. Криспин - это идол тестирования и применения гибких методологий в тестировании. Ожидания от книги были соизмеримы масштабу автора.
В итоге получился сборник воды из общих слов и фраз в духе команды-должны-быть-многофоункциональными и примеров из жизни, которые залетят 1 из 100 читавших.
Еще проблема - слишком очевидно для людей с 0.5 годами опыта и совсем неочевидно д

The book contains a lot of great information and examples from past experiences! I used this book to form a study group with my coworkers, and we had a good time discussing the principles taught in this book. I only wish there was better advice on how to get buy in from the whole team, or how to convince your team that this is how testing should be done in an agile environment.

I had high expectations for this book.

Yes, this book has a lot of great info and examples.
Yes, there are many relevant short stories from the "field" were interesting to read.

However, I was disappointed. Word "more" is misleading in the title and one would not find any tangible practical advice how to adopt testing practices in real life agile context.

This was a little disappointing. I felt like most of the ideas were either re-hashed or old enough that they are pretty standard practice. I wish they'd have dug into a little more on things and look at the tradeoffs of different ideas. Instead, it feels like a quick survey of what an agile testing team may do, with a lot of short blurbs by people saying "here's what I did".

By the time INHERIT THE SEA was published in 1980, Janet Gregory had already written eight books of mystery, set in Montreal, Canada and Palm Beach, FL. where she was moving after completing her second novel in what appears to be a series, THE TIDES OF DESTINY. It was announced at the back of the present volume.

However, this seems to be her only work extant. Perhaps the others were written under a
