      Comments about oreilly Professional Test Driven Development with C#:

      I'm sure the book is well-written and has some useful lessons. However, there is a major issue - the book relies heavily on the NBehave framework which stopped development during the Visual Studio 2012 timeframe, and does not work with Visual Studio 2013. In addition, NBehave won't work with the Community editions of Visual Studio 2012, so those of us trying to self-educate won't find this book very useful at all.
