Let me add that you should get the second edition, which has an official
release date of December 13, 2006. Lots of Rails programmers are
chomping at the bit for that one... even if they have the first edition
(quite a bit has changed). It definitely will be appreciated.

I got the PDF version.. enjoying every bit of it. I am however bit
disappointed in certain aspects of the book but thats another story.
Its a good buy. Buy the PDF and Burn a CD..put some label or something
on the CD :slight_smile: Its much easier to carry then a 723 page thick book..

Cheers
