promising, but unclear audience, mediocre examples,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: ATDD by Example: A Practical Guide to Acceptance Test-driven Development (Addison-Wesley Signature) (Taschenbuch)
readable style, broad spectrum of covered technologies, but I found the examples not really helpful: The first dissects billing for a parking lot- could have been a useful sample for data-driven tests - but the pearls of the example are hidden in page after page of discussion of the (hypothetical) development team.
Cucumber is used, working knowledge of ruby and cucumber expected.
Next example is (German) trafic light control. It's interleaved with lots of Fit and Fitnesse (testing tools) screenshots - but the pearls of the sample were again hidden in lots of noise. I give both examples 2 stars at most, as they were not useful to me.
Part III of the book describes a number of ATDD principles - and that's where I give the author at least four stars.
Up to the end I was unclear which audience the author targets: Beginners: No, too many prerequisites (Cucumber, Ruby, Fit, Slim, Java, Robot...). Advanced testers: No, as the examples are way too simple. Experts: No, as the principles seemed to basic to be useful to experts...
In summary I liked the read but couldn't get as much value from the book as I had expected. As an alternative, consider "Growing Object Oriented Software Guided by Tests" from Steve Freeman et al. The latter is not focussed on BDD or ATDD though...
