This is a very good book on Cucumber, and the examples use up-to-date supporting gems and APIs (Capybara; Aruba, etc.).

I learned some new things about Cucumber: E.g., Transformers (for providing a standard strategy for converting Regexp matches into object instances), and the fact that "given / when / then / etc." can be replaced with a single star for concision. So in matter of detail, this book was good.

On the other hand, the book stops with Cucumber; you don't get the "two circle" approach where you do what you can "outside-in" and then when you need to introduce a new class, you switch to RSpec. Given the high quality of the Cucumber discussion, I think this is really too bad. The RSpec book has all kinds of problems of exposition, but I think the authors here have the stuff to have written THE single Ruby testing book. To be sure, it would have become longer and would have taken them off their main topic, but it sure would have filled a gap.
