It’s been a while.
After finishing BBST Foundations -course I’ve been reading a lot. First I finished the beta version of Elisabeth Hendrickson’s new book: ‘Explore it!’. After that came ‘Perfect Software: And Other Illusions about Testing’ by Gerald M. Weinberg. Now I’m reading ‘Lessons Learned in Software Testing’ which is written by Cem Kaner, James Bach and Bret Pettichord. One of the main reasons why I’m reading in quick pace books now, is that I’m participating Rapid Software Testing -course in few weeks (23-25th of October) and I want to gain more understanding of context-driven testing. I hope that by gaining more knowledge about it, I will also face things that trouble me and I will have good opportunity to ask about them at the course.
I noticed while reading ‘Lessons Learned in Software Testing’ that there is a lot of interesting book recommendations. They fall under many different categories (e.g. epistemology, negotiation, disciplined exploration or reproducing nonproduciple bugs). While seeing all these recommendations, it came to my mind: “Why don’t I do a mind map of these book recommendations?”. And here it is:
I haven’t reviewed it a lot, so there might be mistakes or few books missing. Also some of the books are under few topics, as their content is fitting more than one topic. Personally I have not read almost any of these books, so there is a lot for me to dive in for. Considering my current Amazon Wishlist – which contains 30 books – reading all of these books will take years. But that’s allright. I’ve got time. This is my career. This is my life.
