  1. I may get shouted down on this but I think as a collroary, the “C for Dummies” books were actually pretty good for what they were trying to do. The guy who wrote them invented the “for Dummies” concept (and sold it), so he was a pretty adept technical writer. They might not hold up so well now if I go re-read them but they did stand out to me at the time as a good exception to the “___ for Dummies”/”___ in ___ hours/days” being crap rule.

  2. Everything. It teaches noitnhg, 0. The whole “book” is just a dumb list of outdated software and (very) naive paraphrasing of software QA terms. If a person finds something interesting in this “book” then such person cannot be in software development/testing. Sep 24 ’10 at 15:11

  3. C, easy now. The basic problem is that a trnaalstor needs to be very well technically founded to be able to understand what to translate, and orally well founded to be able to express it fluently in another language. I believe editors have simply underestimated this. Nov 28 ’10 at 2:46
