Any Good Ruby on Rails Books?

Hi Guys,

I am a beginner for Ruby On Rails Stuffs...is there a book that covers
that
for beginners...from what i read on
http://www.rubyonrails.org/screencasts
Seems like it's easy programming....
I have experience in Dreamweaver, PHP, C++, VB & Java programming..
so i guess this shouldn't to difficult to pick up...
Dudes, any idea where I can start?

Thanks..

Cheers,

Here's some I've found useful.

Programming Ruby - http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/ruby/index.html
Ruby for Rails - http://www.manning.com/black
Agile Web Development with Rails - http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/title/rails/

Several more are in various stages of development.

It's useful to scan the newsgroup archives and ask here for current best practices as they are still in flux.

Hiya

There are a few good overviews of the books currently available...

Mine is kept fairly up to date, and has relevant links for reviews and
author notes/blogs:

The new ruby-lang site has a very clean, comprehensive list:
http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/documentation/book-list/

And the Rails site has a shorter list, but you couldn't go wrong with
any of the top 3 on that list, particularly _Ruby for Rails_. I think
that would be the best book for you to start with, as you are a
beginner to ruby and have some prior programming experience.
