I'm having to really think hard about horror stories with TDD. I've seen lots of horrible things with terrible automation and mocking, but rarely does that and TDD wind up together.

I've been doing TDD as one of my primary development techniques for about 7 years now. I can honestly say that TDD has resulted in the most profound improvement in my coding abilities compared to anything else I've done.

My current team that I'm consulting has adopted TDD over the past few months and they've eliminated all their bugs in development and production

Yeah, I am in a similar spot where I have been doing TDD for about 6 years now. TDD the general grab bag of tricks from XP style development has completely changed how I develop code and work with a team.
