Editorial Reviews


Reading this book was like diving into a new world of thinking. I tried a mix of Java and JRuby metaprogramming on a recent project. Using Java alone would now feel like entering a sword fight carrying only a banana, when my opponent is wielding a one-meter-long Samurai blade. - Sebastian Hennebrueder, Java Consultant and Trainer,

This is the one book about Ruby that makes you go "So that's how it works" over and over again, as concepts such as the object model, DSLs, and blocks fall into place with that satisfying "Click!" sound. It's a great guide to what happens under the hood of a language that seems to involve a kind of magic deep inside. I highly recommend it. - Peter Bakhirev, Lead software engineer, Gilt City

The previous edition of Metaprogramming Ruby changed my life and my code, and helped me get my first programming job. You would think there would be no way to improve on a book that good, but Paolo Perrotta has done it. Learn to unlock the hidden potential of this beautiful language, and fall in love with Ruby again. - Richard Schneeman, Programmer, Heroku

For gem authors and application developers alike, this book lays down the foun- dation everyone needs to harness the full power of Ruby. Paolo describes metaprogramming in a fun and approachable way for all skill levels. The knowledge garnered from reading this book will help you write cleaner code and work more effectively with legacy codebases - Paul Elliott, Rocketeer, Hashrocket

Metaprogramming Ruby has been a hugely influential book for me, especially during a time when I wanted to learn about the inner workings of Ruby. Paolo "Nusco" Perrotta made what is normally a complex topic fun, enjoyable, and very approachable. - Josh Kalderimis, CEO, Travis CI
