I'm not familiar with that specific book, but when you mentioned 'Legacy Code', I was reminded of Peter J. Scott's book Perl Medic: Transforming Legacy Code. It also deal with being handed existing code, and having to maintain it. The third chapter covers tests -- it's not as complete as chromatic's book, but it does give an overview of the perl modules in CPAN (at the time) to handle testing.

    All three books complement each other. If you can read all three, I recommend it.
