[TIP] Python Testing book review

I think you'll find broken code with typos in most technical books. I personally don't tend to judge a book by that alone. I thought the Python Testing book was very well organized and managed to explain some fairly difficult concepts such as mock testing in simple language, appropriate for a beginner's guide. Also, there aren't that many other Python books out there (none that I know of in fact) that cover unittest, doctest, nose and twill.

My impression is that there's a lot of very good info for someone at a beginner or even intermediate level in testing in general and testing-in-Python in particular. The code examples show how to approach testing for your project, and even if they're not 100 percent correct, they still serve as a good starting point.

Full disclosure: I know the author pretty well, he used to be part of the SoCal Piggies group.
