This is an overflow page I created as the number of people saying nice things about the Ruby Cookbook started driving the actual Cookbook content off of the main page. Enjoy these extra blurbs:
"906 pages of shiny, nearly perfect Ruby code with detailed explanations of everything... a fantastic way to learn Ruby."
"RC simply gives a lot of value."
"[S]urpasses what you would expect from one of the O'Reilly recipe titles."
"If you would like to become a serious Ruby hacker, don't hesitate to buy this book."
"I honestly spent way too much time with this book because I really enjoyed how it allowed me to play with Ruby quickly."
"[S]hows you both the limits and benefits of Ruby in a way that no other Ruby book I've seen can do... an indispensable tool for current or prospective Ruby programmers..."
--The Jem ReportRuby puts the 'fun' in programming, the Ruby Cookbook puts the 'fu' in fun :)
