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 and Rails Books

Ruby In A Nutshell, Yukihiro Matsumoto, David L. Reynolds
Programming Ruby
The Ruby Way, Hal Fulton
Practical Ruby Gems, David Berube
Making Use of Ruby, Suresh Mahadevan, etc.
Ruby For Rails, David A. Black

Ruby on Rails
The Rails Way, Obie Fernandez
Agile Web Development with Rails, Dave Thomas, David Hansson, etc.
Ruby on Rails: Up and Running, Bruce Tate, Curt Hibbs
Rails Recipes, Chad Fowler

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
