Without a doubt this is the best book for learning test automation using C# 'or VB/NET'. I have been a tester for over 16 years and love almost every minute of it but recently I have needed to transition to more advanced C# automation so I picked up a copy of this book. This well written and concisive work has been a lifesaver. It is actually teaching me to do the programming I need approached from a tester's mindset and not from a developer learning type as most C# books approach the art. It helps make automation enjoyable! My gratitude to the authors!
