During the holiday lull I managed to finally update the Ruby and Rails book pages. The Ruby page includes a few new titles and sees a few existing ones get the axe, as I took the major emphasis on Ruby 1.9 into consideration when updating this list of books.
The Rails page is a complete rewrite as I’ve removed any trace of Rails 2 books. I outlined a useful path of Rails books to follow based on the few available titles that are up-to-date with the latest version of the framework.
It’s likely that more books on the subject will come out in the next few months and as they do, I will update the list accordingly. That said, the existing Rails 3 books (or those that are just about to be released) are very valid, useful ones.
