"It's rare that I read nonfiction these days that is worth reviewing. Most nonfiction to me simply consists of reference material, examples, and step-by-step instructions to help in a given field of study. As a software engineer, I often find myself digging into a particular book for an example or a hint as to how to implement a piece of code. But only rarely do I find myself reading a book from cover to cover. Pragmatic Thinking & Learning: Refactor Your Wetware is one heck of an exception."
"I like to recommend this book to all enthusiastic developer and programmer who love to develop quality code."
"Hunt does a great job in exploring your "wetware", and there were some chapters that squarely addressed certain issues I'm currently dealing with."
"Andy Hunt, co-author of several titles in the Pragmatic Programmers series, has turned his pragmatic prism on our brains. His new book, Pragmatic Thinking and Learning: Refactoring Your Wetware, is a delight to read, provided you understand the vocabulary of agile development. It could be a perfect gift for your favorite geek this holiday season."
"If you want to get up to speed with NUnit and up to speed fast, then Pragmatic Unit Testing in C# with NUnit is the way to go. You will be using the framework within hours of reading this book.

You will find out how easy it is to unit test your .NET applications. This is highly recommended for learning and using NUnit to unit test your C# programs."
