    Comments about oreilly Advanced Software Testing - Vol. 2, 2nd Edition, 2nd Edition:

    It gives a clear breakdown of the QA manager job and
    limitation from the genesis to the maturity of the project. This book helped me to avoid confusion about : Why planning never meet 100% implementation or execution. The estimate level of explanation were enough to make it clear.
