RESTful Routes

I have purchased the peepcode tutorial on RESTful and I have to say it
is brilliant, one thing it does not answer is this question though.

I have been experimenting with rails on nothing serious and managed to
setup an application for which the routes did which for example did,

therefore would pull up googles profile
from the database

I have looked at RESTful and that suggests
would be the RESTful way to do it, does that mean using RESTful style
routes I cannot achieve the configuration "

Or am I just a rails n00b whos missed the point of RESTful?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me!
