The Ruby and Rails Library
I own my personal and private Ruby and Rails library. If I haven’t misplaced any of my books, I currently have ten of the top Ruby and Rails books. From each book I have learned something new about Ruby and Rails. If you are a new programmer learning Ruby or Rails, you don’t need all of these books. For a new Rubyist, I simply recommend any one Ruby and one Rails book from the list below.
Ruby In A Nutshell, Yukihiro Matsumoto, David L. Reynolds
The Ruby Way, Hal Fulton
Practical Ruby Gems, David Berube
Making Use of Ruby, Suresh Mahadevan, etc.
Ruby For Rails, David A. Black
I plan to add the following books to my growing Ruby and Rails library.
The Ruby Programming Language, David Flanagan, Yukihiro Matsumoto
Beginning Ruby: From Novice to Professional, Peter Cooper
Learning Ruby, Michael Fitzgerald
Flexible Rails, Peter Armstrong
Advanced Rails Recipes: 84 New Ways to Build Stunning Rails Apps
Design Patterns in Ruby, Russ Olsen
