    Finally, a testing book for executives!, November 17, 2006
    By 

    Happy About Global Software Test Automation: A Discussion of Software Testing for Executives is an absolute must read for any executive in a company that develops, customizes or implements software.

    For years, software testing has been notoriously under valued and misunderstood by corporate executives. While leading software testers have been trying to get their message to executives from the bottom up, they have been largely unsuccessful. This book has the potential to change that.

    Hung Nguyen is a widely respected leader in the software testing community who has shared his experiences with corporate executives in the first software testing book written explicitly *for* executives. If you are an executive in a company that develops, customizes or implements software, this book is for you. It is straight forward, relevant, applicable and easy to digest. In fact, it is the perfect book to take with you on your next business trip as it is organized in sections that are the perfect size for layovers, take-offs and landings – at least that was the case for me.

    With this book, all it takes is one business trip and you’ll be able to engage in risk and ROI based planning to minimize many of the challenges and expenses your company faces related to software through the efficient and effective application and management of software testing.

    A must have for any test automation executive, April 12, 2007

    This is another very good booklet which should be on the desk of any test automation executive who has to explain to management what he is doing and why he is doing it. As also known from many articles we see once more an explanation of why it is necessary to separate manual testing from test automation (a basic rule that is still not implemented at many companies). I liked very much the part where Nguyen points out the “visibility” to get continuous support and confidence from management. Also I have had some nice “déjà vues” in the outsourcing discussion. People with no experience in Test Automation may miss some concrete examples. Practitioners will realize that they are not alone with their experience.

    Excellent read, November 18, 2006
    By 

    The GSTA book is the best I have come across on this subject. Most books on any QA related subject are simply too text book or just “crack-a-lackin” (crap). Find a nice easy chair, put your feet up on all your other QA /test / automation books and read this (it’s not a thick tomb). You will have the tools to become a star manager / director / exec.

    Excellent read!
