Thanks Henry! I'm glad to be here again.

A couple quick notes:

* The book is a significant update to the first edition, which was written by Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas and released in 2003. Most of the chapters have been reworked and rewritten.
* It's predominantly designed for programmers new to unit testing. If you've been doing unit testing for some time, you might find a few nuggets in here, but mostly it should be material you're already familiar with.
