Agile testing is a much welcome addition to the agile movement.
What I liked about this book was it's thorough coverage of the testing quadrants (first proposed by Brian Marick). Here Lisa and Janet walk testers through all the various forms of testing we typically see on agile projects, and how they relate to agile.This is the first time I have seen this in print and is very needed.
Janet and Lisa also do a thorough job of explaining to testers the valuable role they can play on agile projects, and most importantly how their roles will change from what they are used to.
They cover stories, estimation techniques, and give you much of what you need to function on an agile project.
If you are a tester, and you think you will be working on an agile project at some point in the near future, this book will definitely help you make the transition.
