Colophon

Our look is the result of reader comments, our own experimentation, and feedback from distribution channels. Distinctive covers complement our distinctive approach to technical topics, breathing personality and life into potentially dry subjects.

The animal on the cover of Unit Test Frameworks is a Norway rat. Contrary to its name, the Norway rat's origins are in Asia; over the centuries, it has spread throughout the world. It is often blamed for transmitting the Black Plague through Europe, but another species, the black rat, is actually responsible for this. The Norway rat's appearance includes a brown or dark gray coat with a white or grayish underside, pointed ears, a long snout, and a scaly tail. It averages about 9 to 10 inches in length. It builds its own nest of twigs and leaves and is mostly nocturnal. It makes its habitat where food is most accessible and is typically found in cities, where it can root through garbage; near farms where it can forage through the harvest; and near the ocean, where it can eat fish, seaweed, and the like. It lives among large groups of other rats, usually with one male designated as the leader.
