I’m realizing that the new book isn’t getting enough buzz, so here’s some buzz!
My new book, The Well-Grounded Rubyist, is now out and available from the publisher as well as Amazon and other retailers and stores.
If you’re learning Ruby, or want to learn Ruby, or want to refresh your Ruby knowledge and get more deeply into it…read this book! I talk more about the book in my recent interviews for InfoQ, On Ruby, and RubyLearning.
Some reviews and comments
Here are some review quotations, from various sources:
I think this book is a definite read and should be in every Ruby developer’s library....
Excellent. Easy to read, but not dumbed down. I came away with a much deeper understanding of WHY oop is used, and how to use it in ruby....
If you are looking to understand ruby, look no further.
David does an excellent job going beyond the language and hitting those concepts in the built-in classes and modules that you need to know and will experience in the real-world.
(And don’t get confused if some sites have a different-looking cover. There were two cover designs. The new one is the one you see here.)
