Book Recommendation for Somewhat Experienced Rails Programmer

Hi all,

I am in the process of learning rails, and so far I've relied on
"Agile Web Development with Rails" and "Rails Recipes". I've noticed
there are are couple of more advanced rails books on amazon, and many
seem to cover similar topics. Can anyone shed some light on how they
stack up? Any particular recommendations?

Thanks!

Bob

The Rails Way is probably the place to go next.

Ruby for Rails is a nice book to help you build your Ruby skills though it may be a little outdated… it’s still an awesome book.

Get "The Rails Way".

Only one word comes to mind after having read this book, "coverage".

For me it was "hernia". :wink:

But it is worth the weight.

Try and think of it as "web developer" exercise, a book that is both
for the mind and the body :slight_smile:

Thanks for all the input. I'll give it a shot.

I also bought The Rails Way a few weeks ago and find it a great
complement to AWDR. The only deficiency I've found is that the index
is pretty sparse. But I've found it to be the kind of book where
you're more likely to find what you need from the ToC.

Hmm, I guess that wouldn't be too big of a problem. Thanks for the
info
