Specification by Example

This is a very good practice-oriented book that I would recommend to every person involved in software development projects, either on the developer or the customer side. Its biggest strength is the continuous referral to actual situations experienced by the surveyed project teams. I donít think that you can read more than two or three pages without getting some of this material. The result is a very good balance between concept discussion and practical experience.
