About the book

"Knowing the unknown is better than not knowing at all". Sa & Sa journey of 'Testers' & challenges. Sa and Sa unveils the journey of software professionals. Sa and Sa Unveil this journey, they show how the software industry works, people, organization, expectations, behaviours etc. Key thing we are trying to convey is to learn everyday, develop your skills and help share the knowledge.
My Review

The story introduces to protagonist of the story Sa & Sa (Sachin and Santosh). The book is a very quick read and introduces you to the corporate world and how one strives in this world. The book has chapters as weeks which differentiate the job of a tester from one day to another and how a tester does his job. It goes on to describe the hiring process and what the interview asks to the candidate and how one should reply to the questions.

The author has tried to put some humour to the story by describing some moments comically.

What I liked about the book that it was a quick read but I felt as if it is a story for school children who want to find out what happens in the corporate world. And I seriously think that the cover page isn’t related to the story that it describes, it gives a different idea about the book whereas the contents are very different from the cover page. It did take away my interest in reading the book and the book isn’t for adults.

I will rate this book 2 star based on the humour and quick read.
