  • "Questions asking us to recommend a tool, library or favorite off-site resource are off-topic for Programmers as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it." – Robert Harvey, GlenH7, Dan Pichelman, gnat, Community
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Making Software: What Really Works, and Why We Believe It has a chapter on TDD (now TDD is not what you were asking for, but this is the only credible book I know of to mention unit-testing in any shape or form).
