Highly recommended !,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Ruby Programming Language (Paperback)
I highly recommend this book for everyone who want to learn Ruby. The learning curve for Ruby is merely steep for someone comforted with static typed languages, but if you stick with it will be well rewarded. The book is not too long but very well written (this is the case for every book written by David Flanagan) and full of examples. You will take a grasp about the functional programming aspect of the language, some advanced topics like metaprogramming, about some unique concepts like blocks, procs and lambdas.
So i can not recommend enough to pick up the book and start learning!
