Would you recommend some books about Ruby on Rails?

Hi everybody~
Vey nice to meet you on this group.

I'm a only web service planner operating a site " http://topics.co.kr/categories?q=iphone
" developed by Ruby-on-Rails engineers through payment.

But I'm trying to do study Ruby on Rails by myself from now on.

By the way, some engineers in my country South Korea said the only
book translated in Korean has wrong exercises now because Ruby on
Rails is not any more version 1.x.

So I should buy a book composed by exercise including exercises with
version 2.x.

First of all I hope this book [ http://amzn.to/bshhvk ] is like
so(above) but I'm not sure.

And then I hope you great engineers will recommend an appropriate book
to me, a beginner.

Thank you geeks.

Hi goodchoi,

Welcome!

Your english seems very good. With respect to books, the first 2 that belong on your bookshelf are “Agile Web Development with Rails” and “Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer’s Guide”. I don’t know if either are available in Korean, but Google Chrome may be of some assistance to you with it’s built-in translation capabilities. The first edition of Programming Ruby is available online at http://ruby-doc.org/docs/ProgrammingRuby

The best book on learning Rails that I have ever read is "Simply Rails
2" published by Sitepoint (http://www.sitepoint.com/books/rails2/?
historicredirect=rails1 ). It is laid out in a very good way and it's
the only book where I went through all the examples.

Later on I would recommend "The Rails Way" -http://www.rubyinside.com/
the-rails-way-by-obie-fernandez-679.html
It goes into great detail about Rails.

Remember that Rails 3.0 is just around the corner as well which is a
bit different from 2.0.

I would recommend things by: The Pragmatic Bookshelf

Check out the Agile Web Development With Rails...

I know my viewpoint is in the minority, but I don't recommend learning
Rails from books -- the framework changes too fast, and paper book
publishing just can't keep up. Read Programming Ruby (on the Web or on
paper), read the Rails Guides, and play around. That's what worked for
me (and I'm now doing high-profile Rails development at a Fortune 100
company).

Best,
