[ANN/ADV] "Rails Routing" from Addison-Wesley

Hi --

I'm very pleased to announce the appearance of the Addison-Wesley
"short cut" (PDF/electronic book), "Rails Routing", written by me.
You can get more information and order "Rails Routing" at:
http://safari.awprofessional.com/9780321509246

The book includes coverage of:

   * The basic workings of the routing system
   * Custom routes
   * Named routes
   * RESTful routing
   * Testing routes
   * Examining routes in the console and with plugins

Reviewer Tim Kuntz says:

   David A. Black, also the author of "Ruby for Rails", does a
   masterful job of explaining both the technical details of Rails
   Routing and the philosophical or conceptual principles behind route
   creation.

   (http://ruby.about.com/od/suggestedreading/gr/rails_routing.htm)

Enjoy!

David

P.S. The review also mentions that the example source code wasn't
available yet, but it's now (re)done (after a disk crash/version
control problem I don't want to talk about :slight_smile: and will be made
available by the publisher shortly.

David,
I've written you a number of times asking about topics in your Ruby
for Rails book. I've never once received a reply.

Maybe that's because he's a busy guy and you aren't using the proper
channels? :slight_smile:

Manning has a forum just for that:

I don't seem to have received any email from you. We should probably
track it down off-list, but I'll just mention here that you can see
the whole table of contents for R4R at the publisher's site for the
book:
