This review is from: Service-Oriented Design with Ruby and Rails (Addison-Wesley Professional Ruby) (Paperback)
I was disappointed reading this. It does have patches of good information but I felt that nearly every chapter would mention a problem space or an area of interest, mention 6 or products or libraries, ramble on about intricacies of a single library, show a few code examples for a very limited scenario, then move on to the next chapter. After reading the book cover-to-cover I don't feel that I learnt much, I feel like a mate gave me a verbal overview.

I seems that it deserves more than 2 stars according to your review, maybe a 4. Don't misunderstand me please, you can of course choose what you want but this is also what I choose for your review.

" ramble on about intricacies of a single library, show a few code examples for a very limited scenario, then move on to the next chapter."
typical writing pattern for not excellent books. Makes the reward/effort ratio lower. Sandi Metz has a great book.
