You can tell Judy's been there, done that, and gotten the silly launch T-shirt quite a few times. Here, she shares with you what she's learned about managing a test team in that process. Some of it is painful, but it needs to be said. Much of it is hopeful, positive, and downright funny, though. She'll inspire you to do your best work as a manager, even under tough circumstances.
I already knew this from working with her, and now everyone who reads this book will know: Judy clearly loves being a test professional, and she really wants to see test teams that are well-lead by fellow enthusiasts for the profession. If you are a test manager, whether (though especially) you are new to test management or an experienced old hand, you should pick up this concise yet wide-ranging book. You'll have fun reading it, and you'll be a better test manager for having done so.

I wish that we had more people like Judy involved in software development. She really inspired you to make the tough decision that will ensure project success. I found this book both educational and inspirational. A worthwhile read to anyone frustrated with problems in modern software development processes. I would recommend this to anyone consider a future in technical management or software testing. Yes as software engineers we do spend much of our time performing these roles.
This book was a donation to the SGV.Net Developer group. We are a group of software engineers who strive to learn the latest in technology. We would like to thank our supports for providing this book.
It is a small but very good book, explains management and leadership in a pretty good way, I found it very useful anyway.
4 out of 5 stars because nothing is perfect - a few small issues, but if you read the first 3 chapters fully, then skim the rest (the whole thing), then start at chapter 4 and read the parts you are interested, you will have covered the shortcomings because you skimmed the rest of it :)
