The book is outdated for today use cases. We now have a lot of new methodologies for writing and running our tests. In addition the book concerns about a few points that have been fixed in the past years.

Giving a good insight into the flow of Test-Driven Development in JavaScript and other languages (it's a pretty easy concept to move around in different languages).

First important point: Even though the first word in the book is test, this is primarily a book about development and not testing. Only the first section spent much time on testing frameworks (which is probably sensible, it doesn't take that long to explain how they work); the rest uses that as a base but isn't very test focused.

I'm personally not a believer in playing too many fancy games with javascript prototype chaining and closures - the complications, in my opinion, outweigh the benefits.
