Heres what Michael Feathers, an Agile rock star in his own right, has to say
about The Art of Unit Testing : This is the best all around introduction to unit
testing on the market today.
The Art of Unit Testing guides the reader on the journey from beginner to master
in the subtle art of unit testing. Based on expert author Roy Osheroves
real-world development experiences, this book shows developers how to make
sure the code that they write actually works as expected, and how to make these
verifications as automated as possible. Not only that, the book shows techniques
that help to make sure that tests are maintainable, readable, and test the right
thing over time.
The author establishes five rules for good unit tests built upon the three major
principles that any good test be maintainable, trustworthy, and readable. Clear
sections present established best practices, and the book also provides clear guidance
on what to test and where to start testing in a legacy code project.
Unlike other books on this topic, this book trades theory for real-world examples.
Its designed so that a working developer can start writing better unit tests
now. Unlike most Unit Testing and TDD books, most examples are in C#
on the .NET platform.
