My Tester's Bookshelf


While I've been reading a lot using my Kindle in the past year, most of my technical books are still of the paper variety.

Here are some of the books I currently have in my bookcase that are either directly related to Testing, QA, or Technical Management, or have influenced my life as a Software Professional:


  1. That's a pretty extensive list are there any in there that particularly stood out when you were reading them ?

  2. Wow, way too many! :)

    For a new tester, like myself, which would you recommend as the top 5?
    (I have a background as a programmer, now aiming for a test leading role)

  3. Craig, Stian,

    The one I find most useful is "Lessons Learned in Software Testing". I re-read at least parts of that one often.

  4. Thanks, Joe - I'll check that one out!

    Btw, very nice blog you got here - I am keeping my eyes on it :)

  5. Thanks for the kind word, Stian!

  6. Wow, none of the 4 that I wrote/contributed to are on there... makes me feel kinda, well, irrelevant.

    - Web Load Testing for Dummies
    - Performance Testing Guidance for Web Applications
    - How to Reduce the Cost of Software Testing
    - Beautiful Testing

  7. I'll have to add them to my "to read" list, Scott!
