Review: “Learning Rails 3″ Simon St. Laurent, Edd Dumbill, Eric J Gruber, O’Reilly Media
Really good introduction to Rails 3
I was very curious about this book when came out. I like the way authors present material in book. First, they show bigger picture and step-by-step explain it in details. Book covers basics and focuses on providing good background for further learning. Each chapter at the end contains “Test Your Knowledge” section which nicely recap topics mentioned in chapter. Authors put a lot of valuable tips.
From my point of view book needs improvement to be perfect — there are some errors and I found Chapter 5 with REST & HTTP methods not-so-easy to grasp in comparison to other chapters.
To sum up, Learning Rails 3 is really, really good book.
