I finally got around to updating my recommended Ruby book page. I decided to split it and create two new pages, one for Ruby and the other for Rails. These include new gems (pardon the pun) such as Obie‘s The Rails Way (best book on Rails currently in print) and the fantastic Design Patterns in Ruby.
By the way, the picture on the side is a quick snapshot I took to show some of the Ruby/Rails books I own. In fact, I only recommend books that I own, have borrowed or otherwise thoroughly analyzed. 🙂 I hope you’ll find my suggestions useful.
