This review is from: Metaprogramming Ruby: Program Like the Ruby Pros (Paperback)
I've been using Ruby for about 3 years now and thought I had a good understanding of the language and its capabilities. Wow, was I wrong! This book was like a grenade going off in my head that rearranged my perception of Ruby programming reality. There is a ton of good information in this book that can be used for new projects, refactoring, and anything in between.
A great thing about this book is that it presents these cool but seemingly impractical techniques, and then gives you a great real world example of just how common and practical it really is. Another thing I wasn't expecting is the humor. I laughed out loud reading some sections of the book.
I'm not sure that I'd recommend this for the new Rubyist, but if you have a decent foundation, this book will take you to the next level.
