4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad Rails book May 28, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a pretty good overview of the Rails framework. It covers the basics, and is clearly written. I didn't find it to be a "bible" of RoR, in that my expectations of such a book would be a very in depth collection of information. This is why I rate it a 4/5.

That being said, it's a good book, and worth owning if you are new to RoR.

As someone with no previous experience with Ruby on Rails, I found this is very good introduction to this environment. The how-to format was very good at producing results quickly.
