Testing References - The Software Testing Bookstore

The Software Tester's Bookstore is an attempt to capture some of the knowledge that is truly relevant for software testing. Going by the paradigm that the books on software testing contain only partially relevant information, this list therefore contains a very limited number of books on software testing.

Instead the bookstore covers knowledge that we truly need to possess and extend if we want to advance the craft of software testing. Obviously, it covers domains such as philosophy, scientific thinking, psychology, epistemology, systems thinking, sociology, mathematics, art, design and management.
