I’m pleased to announce the beta release of the Pragmatic Bookshelf’s  
The RSpec Book: Behaviour Driven Development with RSpec, Cucumber and  

It’s been a long time coming, and there’s still a lot of work to do to  
get to print. The beta release has 9 of the 22 chapters we have  
planned. Most of what remains is almost done, but not quite ready to  
release yet. As with all of the Pragmatic beta books, we’ll do regular  
updates every few weeks as we wrap up the remaining chapters and  
incorporate your feedback. And please do provide feedback. We want  
this book to serve you well!

There are six authors involved: Dave Astels, Zach Dennis, Aslak  
Hellesoy, Bryan Helmkamp, Dan North, and me. I'm honored to be in such  
good company here, with the guys who brought us BDD, to the developers  
and maintainers of RSpec, Cucumber and Webrat.

You can read more (and buy the book!) at http://www.pragprog.com/titles/achbd/the-rspec-book

On behalf of all the authors, I'd like to extend a special thank you  
to all of you who have contributed to the software and the  
conversation around RSpec, Cucumber, and BDD in general. RSpec would  
be nothing without the community that has evolved around it, so thank  
you, thank you, thank you.
