The Book Of Ruby - new paperback edition
A new paperback edition of The Book Of Ruby is now available from No Starch Press. This edition of The Book Of Ruby has been substantially rewritten and includes coverage of Ruby 1.9 as well as Ruby 1.8. It also covers Rails 3 in addition to Rails 2.
I first released a free PDF edition of The Book Of Ruby back in 2009. This is a hands-on tutorial that guides you through all the twisty little highways and byways of Ruby programming. Over the last six months I’ve been working on a new paperback edition for No Starch Press. This substantially revises the original text and expands the coverage to include Ruby 1.9 in addition to Ruby 1.8.
