From the Back Cover

Get on the RoR track and build powerful Web apps with ease

Thanks to the explosive growth in popularity of the Rails framework, the equally popular Ruby programming language now has a great place to hang its hat. The powerful combination of the two provides the perfect toolset to create Web applications that feature concise code, clean syntax, and easy maintenance. This must-have book is your best guide on how to jump on the RoR bandwagon, from the basics of Ruby programming to advanced techniques for experienced Rails developers.

  • Get up to speed on Ruby basics, including objects, irb, and built-ins

  • Explore the Model, Controller, and View layers of the Rails framework

  • Understand the "convention over configuration" philosophy of Ruby on Rails

  • Walk through the development of a complete Rails application

  • Set up a database, build a model, use scripts, and test and debug

  • Master advanced Rails, including Prototype, Scriptaculous, and topics such as Web Services

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this book to be a pretty good overview of the Rails framework. It covers the basics, and is clearly written. I didn't find it to be a "bible" of RoR, in that my expectations of such a book would be a very in depth collection of information. This is why I rate it a 4/5.

That being said, it's a good book, and worth owning if you are new to RoR.

As someone with no previous experience with Ruby on Rails, I found this is very good introduction to this environment. The how-to format was very good at producing results quickly.
