Book Summary of Beautiful Testing
Successful software depends as much on scrupulous testing as it does on solid architecture or elegant code. But testing is not a routine process, it's a constant exploration of methods and an evolution of good ideas.

Beautiful Testing offers 23 essays from 27 leading testers and developers that illustrate the qualities and techniques that make testing an art. Through personal anecdotes, you'll learn how each of these professionals developed beautiful ways of testing a wide range of products -- valuable knowledge that you can apply to your own projects.

Here's a sample of what you'll find inside:

Microsoft's Alan Page knows a lot about large-scale test automation, and shares some of his secrets on how to make it beautiful
Scott Barber explains why performance testing needs to be a collaborative process, rather than simply an exercise in measuring speed
Karen Johnson describes how her professional experience intersected her personal life while testing medical software
Rex Black reveals how satisfying stakeholders for 25 years is a beautiful thing
Mathematician John D. Cook applies a classic definition of beauty, based on complexity and unity, to testing random number generators
