I don't fault the author for lapses in what may be a non-native language.But I surely fault Packt Publishing for selling books in an English-speaking market without respecting customers enough to properly proofread and copy edit their offerings.The technical information here is sound but I found myself re-reading and fine-parsing far more than I'd like - to the point where I began to doubt the author's expertise - justified or not.If I have a criticism of the content it's there's too much time spent on recording tests with Selenium IDE. No one doing serious web-based automation these days is doing record and playback, and they're not strictly testing GUI controls. They're coding from scratch in either Java or C# against APIs and injecting JavaScript and/or JSON/XML. The sooner you get comfortable writing directly to the Web Driver, the sooner you'll be productive.I'd like to recommend this book but the best I can do is 'conditionally'. There are just too many better-written sources of similar information out there.

The book is full of less relevant information, such as Java basics, Selenium RC explanations and so on. However, the most important knowledge, which I was looking for when I purchased this book - how to build the Selenium Automation framework from scratch - was not explained in detail, this section was only briefly shown in chapter 7 on literally less than 20 pages ( out of 291 pages of the book).So overall I was dissapointed from this book, although I did learn a few new things from it.

Clearly written with good examples. Was able to get going quickly.

Raghavendra prasad has done excellent research and published the book that's perfect reading for a person who likes to explore, learn and expertise in selenium Web Driver. It's very detail in nature and things that have been covered in depth with examples and is explanatory in nature. Especially the advanced topics covered in chapter 11,12 and 13 provide an in depth knowledge for existing users of selenium.Thanks RP for your work and like to see more from you in near future...
