What did Google [rails book] tell you?

It´s only a question… about the BEST book, and not the best google tips… thanks…

I think it depends on your goals, and current skillset.

I liked the Ruby for Rails book, because it helped me understand WHY
things happen.

I think the Agile book is better for showing you HOW to do things. It
also has more info about Rails. There's also a new version coming out
real soon.

It's also frequently asked here. I only frequently ask questions that
Google can't answer. I'm aware this policy may someday deprive the
Google archives of the answers to FAQs, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

As other responders said, check prior threads.

I didn't respond on those, so I'll put in a vote for _Ruby for Rails_
now. I knew nothing about Ruby when coming to Rails and RfR explains,
clearly and objectively, how Ruby and Rails mesh and work. I feel I've
got a much better understanding than after having read the Agile Web
Dev. book.

That said, you should run and get the Agile Web book second because
nothing will compare to the broad Rails knowledge therein.

HTH,
Mike
