Review by

This is a good book, but it's quite dull and dry. I am not aware of any more exciting treatment of the subject, however, and you can still make any piece of "beta" software, even one with a bevy of unit tests, beg for mercy with the testing strategies. The documentation techniques descibed here have been moved to the web, but remain essentially unchanged.
