I was pleasantly surprised by the book organization which illustrated very well the concepts of Convention over Configuration(CoC) so inherent to rails. It provided a fast introduction to Ruby programming language and in no time I had a near professional demo web application working for me.
Reading this book has been an interesting experience. Something I hope will be useful in my professional life. Keep up the good work !!
The first section of the book is real basic while you build an e-commerce application. The second half of the book shines. It goes into great detail about the framework, and how all the different aspects of Rails tie together.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking into Rails. Newbie or intermediate.
This book seems well edited and the website is helpful with addendum for the latest Rails versions and the "homework" activities.
