For those who missed the reference in a recent thread, there is an
online PDF prepublication version of Kent Beck's new book Test-Driven
Develoopment By Example:

Part II uses Python (though some indents got hosed in that version --
don't know about the published version).  I read thru it in an
afternoon and now see how I could actually do it once I make a bit
more investment in learning the details of unitttest.
