Here's one of our "user stories", contributed by Robin Dymond and included in our preface:
"As a QA professional, I can understand the main difference between traditional QA professionals and agile team members with a QA background, so that I can begin internalizing my new responsibilities and deliver value to the customer sooner and with less difficulty".

That's one main audience of the book. It's also for developers who wonder who should be doing what testing, development managers wondering how to engage testers, teams worried that they can't get their testing finished by the end of each iteration, teams who wonder when they can do their non-functional testing in an agile project, and more.

As I described in another post here, you will also benefit from reading about the experiences of numerous other agile practitioners and their teams, the agile testing issues they faced, and how they addressed them.
