Wow... just wow. I used to lie awake at night for hours at a time thinking about how I was going to get out of writing tests, all due to that manager Steve and his insistence it would be good for me. With this book that's no longer a problem! Not only does it provide a heap of useful one liner responses it goes into the underlying theories allowing you to avoid those conversations entirely! Now I only debug in production and my job is safe forever. Thanks to the author! Well worth the price!
