The better Rails 4 (RSpec) testing book.

Focusing on how to test, why to test and writing fast tests.

Covers the most useful scenarios and overlaps with https://github.com/eliotsykes/rspec-r... which can only be a good thing.

If you don't know much about BDD/TDD and how to write tests not to mention good tests, this is a good book to learn from.

I made a lot of notes while I was reading the book. I was already using some of the described methodics, but there were some new things which are clearer now. And can't wait to apply those in practice.

If this book was any more exciting, it would no longer be a book about software testing.

One cool feature of the book is that the examples you're implementing as you go through the book all belong to the same project, so you've got a good context to work from throughout the book.
