InfoQ was given the opportunity to speak with the authors: Jonathan Jacky, Margus Veanes, Colin Campbell and Wolfram Schulte who decided to respond to the questions as a collective.  Their book, Model Based Software Testing and Analysis with C#,  was recently published by Cambridge University Press whom provided to InfoQ Chapter 1, "Describe, Analyze, Test". 

When asked as to their motivation for authoring this volume they responded:

 

We want to provide up-to-date information on a particular, practical approach for model-based testing that is used successfully inside Microsoft. We also wanted to provide educators with resources so that they can start teaching model-based testing, since we believe that's not done enough.  The idea of using of model programs and state space exploration is a natural extension of finite state machine based techniques that fits well with black-box testing of software.

The book makes this idea accessible to a broad audience.
